This week on Car Talk, having trouble gift shopping for the man in your life? Good news! Tom and Ray are here to help. We have the official Men's Gift Guide, starting with two words no guy can resist: ratchet and socket. Meanwhile, our callers have their own holiday wish lists for Tom and Ray: Braden would like to remove the Eau de Poochy from his Honda Odyssey, Adrienne would like to get her husband to stop using cruise control while they're comin' down the mountain, and all Elizabeth wants is to be able to see out the windows of her Volvo. And, the long-distance call of the week comes from Antarctica, where summer can't come soon enough for Matt and his snowmobile. All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
