    Believe it or not, Car Talk is celebrating its 30th Anniversary on NPR. We know we should mark the occasion with a sincere apology for wasting all those hours, but instead, we're celebrating with a series of special shows featuring some of our all-time favorite calls. This week's theme: Relationships! Can lonely guy Chris use his car to meet a woman? Did Ellen really wreck her husband's Explorer by accidentally filling it with diesel? Should Doug buy a manual shift car so his messy wife can't drive it? Did Kim or her husband make the more foolish car purchase? And what happens to a radio show host who implies his wife looks like a truck? All this, and more great moments, this week on The Best of Car Talk.

    Who better than Tom and Ray to solve a dispute between two brothers over a vintage Camaro? Well, lots of people, actually. But Cynthia wasn't able to reach any of them, so this week on The Best of Car Talk, she'll hope our heroes can bring peace to Thanksgiving this year. Elsewhere, Virginia's Honda keeps getting stolen and returned. She's resorted to drastic measures to protect it, but would she be better off just leaving the car unlocked and engine running? Also, John's Corvette's engine is misfiring, but John's hesitant to go to the dealer since the miss only occurs above 140 mph; and why did Bill's attempt to replace a broken belt with his daughter's tights fail? All this, plus a few unpublished titles from William Shakespeare, and lots more, this week on The Best of Car Talk.
