Avid listeners of National Public Radio (NPR) will be intimately familiar with the frenetic and informed commentary of Tom and Ray Magliozzi on their long-running radio show, Car Talk. On the site, visitors can read biographies of the brothers, listen to their radio program, and of course, submit questions for their erudite consideration. One very relevant section of the site is the Actual Car Information area. Here visitors can read reports of new automobile models, read about hybrid electric vehicles, and learn about incentives offered by different major automobile manufacturers. Visitors will also not want to miss the As Read on Car Talk section, which features an archive of the many entertaining letters received (and read aloud on the program) by the duo since 1996. The site concludes with a list of helpful summer driving tips and material on safety recalls as well.
