For more than two decades, Tom and Ray Magliozzi (aka Click and Clack the Tappet Brothers) have been America's funniest auto mechanics. By making more than 4 million weekly listeners* laugh, they have become the defining voices of public radio weekends. Their mixture of honesty, authenticity, knowledge, and humor has won them numerous awards (including a Peabody), accolades from every major national publication, and the loyalty of millions of public radio listeners, who continue to reward their stations with good will, listener hours, and fundraising dollars.

This week on Car Talk, Mara has tried everything to rid her car of its ant infestation. Well, maybe not everything, since there are no burn marks. Tom and Ray have a way to lure them out that is at once incredibly creative-- and very stupid. Elsewhere, how does Diane reconcile her husband's desire to rebuild his BMW with her parent's need to get it off their farm, so the potatoes can be planted? Also, a lesson to car dealers: if you're going to make up a name for your wife, choose one you know how to spell. And, on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Tom, Ray, and Joan's husband can correctly diagnose her screeching Ford Festiva. All this and more, this week on Car Talk.

This week on Car Talk, one listener's tribute to Tommy's dearly departed Dodge Dart will have William Wordsworth rolling over in his grave. "For in the spot where Dart once sat, there's now but oil stains." Later, Tom and Ray try to rescue a spoon trapped in one car's vents, and a 20-dollar bill trapped in a driver's door; and, on a slighlty more urgent note, they try to keep Eric's engine from disintegrating. Elsewhere, Doug might become the Chuck Yeager of CV joints if he doesn't mind the risk of getting stuck on a railroad track; and can Environmental Studies major Carl do anything to ease his guilt over driving two ginormous gas guzzlers? All this and more, this week on Car Talk.
