This week on Car Talk, the Big Book of Bad Ideas gets a new chapter. Ted wants to work on his 1947 Jeep by tipping it on its side - yes, on its side - and relying on his three brothers to hold it place. Can Tom and Ray move Ted towards a less life-threatening approach? Meanwhile, Lynn in Colorado is concerned about her new Subaru's key heating feature; Russell in North Carolina is being serenaded by George Gershwin every time he turns on his air conditioning; and is "sometimes they just need a good kick in the pants" really the right answer to Steve's transmission mystery? Finally, a shout out to any bird poop terminal velocity experts in the audience - Tom and Ray could use your help! All this and lots more, this week on Car Talk.
