  • Tom and Ray Magliozzi are America’s foremost auto mechanics. Most people phone in to their radio show with questions about cars: buying them, driving them, cursing them, keeping them running. But advice is just the tip of the Car Talk carburetor. In between are songs, jokes, puzzlers, rants—and, most famously, digressions. Give the guys an inch of airspace and they’ll riff on almost anything. That’s what this collection is about: telling stories, going off on tangents, taking verbal detours, and convincing a delighted audience to come along. Whatever happened to Tommy’s Dart? Why is Doug the subway fugitive? Listen, learn—and laugh.
