    I had never heard of this program, but listened to the video above, and I have to say, I laughed and laughed until the tears came. Mr. Magliozzi had a wonderful laugh, and his cohort is quite the 'snorter'! Thanks for the rush of endorphins!

    I love that show and I don't know a thing about cars or engines. Anytime I came across it- I listened, and laughed and laughed and laughed!

    Mr. Magliozzi will truly be missed.
    I've spent many hours, laughing and learning, while listening to him interact with his brother over the years on the air.

    As a girl Motörhead, I appreciated everything about Car Talk. Growing up listening to NPR on KQED, Car Talk was a fixture in our household, and I cherished the moments I had listening to them with my Father before he passed. I still listen to them now, as NPR rebroadcasts their shows. :heartluv:

    He gave me a love of all things motor (two and four wheeled), and those memories are forever intertwined.

    I can just imagine him looking down on us, his incredible laughter echoing from the heavens. I wish his brother strength, during this difficult time.

    :rose:

    I saw an actual Dodge Dartre at the thrift store last night and thought of the guys.

    Lydia Magliozzi Icke, who wrote a poem commemorating her life with her dad. Before she began she offered us this explanation:
