It is hilarious.
Why can’t we have ads like this in the U.S.
So much better than the ones for Viagra and Cialis
which are irksome, tedious and inappropriate for kids.
Nothing offensive here. Just loads of clever fun.

I was very saddened to read that Tom Magliozzi had passed away. I had no idea that he was ill or that he was 77. I thought he was my age.

I have been a great follower of ‘Car Talk‘ since the late 1990s. Matthew, as a pre-teen, used to love it and try and do the puzzlers each week. Now both Devanee and Teischan like it. I do not record it like some or make a point of listening to it at home. We only listen to it if we are in the car. But if it is on we always listen.

I do have his book somewhere in this house. I will now have to try and find it.

Great and sad loss. I will miss him. Now I understand why they stopped the show. Great shame.

I know that Tom would get a kick from this Fiat ad. A cousin, in Australia, kindly sent me the link. He knew it would appeal to me.

Thank YOU, Tom. You were the MAN.
