    I listened to these guys every Saturday morning, not because I wanted to learn about cars but because they were so funny. It was like listening to my Dad and some of his friends giving advice about engines, tires and such. It brought me back to when my Dad was still alive; now when I listen on Saturdays it will be with a little sadness. :(

    BOSTON (Reuters) - Tom Magliozzi, co-host of the long-running weekly National Public Radio show "Car Talk," died on Monday of complications from Alzheimer's disease, the broadcast network said. He was 77.

    Magliozzi and his younger brother Ray became famous as the self-deprecating radio mechanics "Click and Clack the Tappet Brothers" on their popular week

    =( I was listening to my local NPR station this morning really remembering the great times with Click-N-Clack. I also listened every week. Sad... Didn;t expect to see a thread here, but that is awesome. Alzheimers. Ugh.

    I've been a fan of Click & Clack for years - they always gave me a chuckle.

    I had no idea Tom was suffering from Alzheimer's. Such sad news to learn of his passing.

    They are on right before 'Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!'. It's a fun morning sitting sipping coffee and listening.

    The show yesterday had Ray talking about his brother between segments of Ray's interactions with callers and his infectious laughter. Ray's sorrow was palpable.
