    I wasted many a perfectly good hour listening to Car Talk from "our fair city". That's too bad. But the memories (and the re-runs) will live on. I hope Tom will be driving his Dodge Dart in heaven!

    Oh... no! How will I ever figure out what to do on Saturday mornings now?

    Tom kept me from making many mistakes, including several which had nothing to do with cars.

    I remember listening to Car Talk to and from long distance soccer games when I was younger -- really brings back good memories.

    My dad had a CD that he would play over and over again.

    I remember just staring at the album cover http://m.imgur.com/qnQKOCu

    For sure, the definitely talk like they look :smile:.

    It is, indeed, a sad day. Many happy memories!

    I must have listened to hundreds of Car Talk shows over the years. I can hear their infectious guffaws, cackles and empathetic groans. Rest in peace, Tom.

    That was and still is one of the best shows on NPR. Credits were great.
