This week on The Best of Car Talk, how can Doug diplomatically tell his wife she's a slob when it comes to cars, and should his new car be a stick shift, so she can't drive it? Ray's telling of his wife's turn from neatness to the dark side provides a cautionary tale. Also, on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Richard resorted to shock therapy to get his pet goats to stop climbing on his cars, and if Richard's girlfriend Doris started speaking to him again. And, why did Paul go to a cobbler instead of a body shop when his gas pedal fell through the floor of his Datsun? All this and lots more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.

This week on The Best of Car Talk, Paula swears the only way she can start her car on really cold mornings is by laying a warm blanket on the hood. Is there any possibility that Paula isn't completely nuts? Elsewhere, Dick's truck bounces when he steps on the brakes, but can Dick stay awake long enough for Tom and Ray to explain why? Also, a ski trip turned Jennifer's Geo into a low rider; Betsy's Toyota is sliding around Martha's Vineyard; and Peter's wife always said, "A car is just a car", until she drove Peter's new Jaguar. Is peter's new Jag now hers? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
