The hands-down highlight of many a Car Talk episode, Daniel Pinkwater is responsible for some of the all-time greatest moments of the program's storied history on public radio. Whether discussing man's best friend (but worst passenger) or searching for the perfect vehicle for those who are "horizontally challenged," Pinkwater keeps Tom and Ray in stitches, along with the show's far-flung audience. The latest time-wasting Car Talk collection features the official designation of the Pinkwater seating standard, the strange case of the motorhead boyfriend, the presentation of the first Car Talk Peace Prize, Stump the Chumps, a puzzler from the Lying Used Car Salesman series, a stirring recitation from a BMW owner's manual, a discussion of puking pooches, and more. It's four perfectly good hours of laughter and conversation.

Professional reviews

"The premise of NPR's radio talk show "Car Talk" is simple: Callers describe the symptoms of their car problems, and hosts Tom and Ray Magliozzi ("Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers"), car mechanics who own a garage in Cambridge, Massachusetts, make diagnoses and provide advice. The brothers have a pronounced Boston accent, and their advice is peppered with the raucous and slightly annoying laughter typical of a radio talk program. But it's obvious that they're a good-natured and knowledgeable pair who provide helpful advice in a fun and self-deprecating manner. This collection features various calls from author Daniel Pinkwater, a regular caller to the show. It's a fun listen, even for those with little knowledge of cars. S.E.G.
