This week on Car Talk, Donna's husband refuses to part with his 1977 Dodge Aspen. It runs like a champ, but looks like the 1962 New York Mets. It's so beat up that, during a recent storm, more hailstones made it through holes in the car than actually hit the body. Is this a job for Uncle Nunzio's sabotage team, or Mr. Gigi's beautification squad?
Elsewhere, David's Nissan is jerking while accelerating, making it look like he doesn't know how to drive stick, and worse, tossing his dog all over the truck; Pam is so concerned about her T-Bird's creaking noise that she waited five years to call us about it; and could Tom's diagnosis of an overheating Subaru really cause MIT to revoke his diploma? Oh, and by the way, if your name is Homer Handelburg, have we got an offer for you! All this and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: March 30, 2013]
