#1936: The Super Magliozzi Brothers This week on The Best of Car Talk, two preteen kids present "Car Talk: The Video Game," and prove they're a lot more creative and have better marketing skills than anyone in our office. But, they probably can't beat Tom and Ray on car questions, right? We won't test that, but, the brothers will try to figure out why Martha's van stops moving and acts like it's run out of gas; what made Karl's horn start blaring early Sunday morning; and which heap Cass and her newly reunited husband should keep. Also, should Lee listen to a retired mechanic's advice and run his car for 15 seconds with a pint of kerosene and no oil? And, our listeners weigh in on whether or not to name a car. All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
