    Say It Isn't So...Tommie?...Ray?

    Brothers Tom and Ray Magliozzi said Friday they will stop making new episodes of their joke-filled auto advice show at the end of September, 25 years after "Car Talk" began in Boston. Repurposed versions of old shows will stay on National Public Radio indefinitely, however.

    I spent many lazy saturdays working on cars with my dad while listening to "Car talk". These guys struck the perfect balance between being hilarious and informative about auto problems.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    The end of an era. The crappy local auto advice shows on radio stations throughout the country can't even be called a poor substitute for Click and Clack. Thanks for ruining my weekend.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)
