#3. Roll On Riley!
(Ode to an Old Blue Bus)
Played on Car Talk Show #200336

The band traveled in an old blue bus named for Riley Oregon, a minuscule town just about at the geographic center of Oregon. There the bus broke down on the road to Sun Valley, Idaho. But..we fixed it & got to the gig on time! "Good old Riley!"

 #4. The Bug Is Back
Played on Car Talk Show # 200409

This song is for all of us who have had a Bug in our past car history as well as those of you who have a new Bug in your present car history. Oh what a history it has and what a fun part of our history it was

 #5. The Corner Garage
Played on Car Talk Show # 200650

Artists aren't all found working in studios..all art isn't hanging in galleries.
Likewise, the best mechanics aren't always found at the dealership.
Yours may be just down the road in your home town's Corner Garage.

#6.  A Real Men ... Can Fix The Car

Played on Car Talk Show # 200734

Actually, we all know that real men do eat quiche. So also is it true that not all real men are 'gonna fix the car...' But a man without a sense of humor regarding cars or quiche is probably an unhappy man. So lighten up, laugh about it, eat the quiche, and pay the man

 #7. In A Pre-Prius World
Played on Car Talk Show # 201150

Be careful! There may be a Prius heading toward you in complete silence.
There was a world before Prii. Although it was louder & heavier,
there were some wonderful charm to it all.

 #8. Old Car Fools
Played on Car Talk Show # 1346

There's no fool like an old fool, and no old fool like an Old Car Fool!! 
You might even know one but be careful if he lives next door!
