Car Talk on HPPR

Click and Clack, the Tappet brothers, diagnose car problems and crack a lot of jokes every week on Car Talk. It's a call-in style show where the long-time mechanics don't know what kind of call they'll get. Callers describe the odd noises and behavior of their cars and the brothers arrive at a diagnosis and give some advice.
