I really enjoy them. It always struck me as funny that listening to them on radio or Prairie Home Companion could actually make me laugh out loud; something television rarely can do. Is radio really funnier (I think probably so) or is it just the way you get into it?

Good for them even if I wished they were staying on the air. I am not a regular weekend radio listener but always enjoyed their show when I caught it!

Dear Car Talk Guys,

I am planning to retire early. My girlfriend will probably have to wait to retire until the usual age. This is causing problems in our relationship. She insists that i should do all the driving since I will soon be retireing. I think she should drive more since she has more time until she retires. As you can imagine this is causing a lot of problems. Next week we are driving 600 miles one-way to a birthday part for a good friend in another city so I need the answer to this question quickly!

When I retire, should I get the high speed tires or the mud and snow rated tires for my Candy Apple Red Mazda Miata that screams "MidLife Crisis!!!"

And the answer is stay away from those trailer tires, YMMV.

How can we tell that they were still in production? Do they have live shows or a studio audience? For all we know they retired in 2005...

Those are two guys who'd hardly have any reason to ever retire. I hope they have other interests besides oil changes & brake jobs.
