    I don't listen that often, but I like them and will miss them. The reruns will still be fun.

    I think it's nearly impossible to not like Car Talk. I'm shocked that Tom is 74 years old...I guess he does deserve to retire. I found it interesting that NPR is going to keep airing "best of" shows from now on. That speaks to how valuable the show was/is to NPRs fundraising.

    I'm just glad neither of the brothers decided to do a stupid reality TV show that would impact the quality of their radio gig. 25+ years of solid radio is a hell of a legacy. I'm glad to see that they're going out on top of their game, unlike Howard.

    Loved that show since I was a kid and I don't care about cars. They're delightful.
