#1306: The Little Morris Minor That Couldn't

Car Talk show

Summary: <p>This week on Car Talk, Jim loves his 1957 Morris Minor, except for one minor inconvenience--its 36 horsepower isn't enough to get it up hills, so his passengers have to get out and push. Does Jim need to keep a few Clydesdales on hand for an occasional tow? Elsewhere, Mo had to drive her boss's Saab, and the next day it needed a few hundred dollars' worth of clutch repairs. Should she be dreading her next employee review? Also, on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Dr. Paul's life no longer resembles a Country-Western song; sisters Kathy and Jackie debate the merits of using mothballs to improve gas mileage; and could the secret to a happy marriage be two simple words: "Yes, dear"?  All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk.</p>
