#1317: The Neon of Dorian Gray

Car Talk show

Summary: <p>This week on Car Talk, Ian's Neon has discovered the Fountain of Youth. When the car goes over 50 MPH, the odometer begins running backwards. Can Tom and Ray figure out what's going on before the car drives itself all the way back to the assembly plant? Elsewhere, automotive history is made in Oregon, as Jim becomes the first person ever to feel guilty about selling a used car that's performing too well for its new owner; on Stump the Chumps, we find out Dana's jerking Jetta was really due to the dreaded, "Shmutz on the Clutch"; and Tom and Ray finally get judged by their peers, as an 8th grade class reviews our show. Could Roger Ebert have topped, "I think the show is a good idea because people like listening to idiots"? All this and lots more, this week on Car Talk.</p>
