#2313: Johnny Rocket
John from Pennsylvania thinks he has an atypical warranty issue with his local Chevy dealer. If he explains to the dealer that his new Corvette exhibits engine problems at 140 miles per hour, he's pretty sure that the dealer will then explain to John that he has voided his warranty. John is clearly nuts for driving at mach one, but is he right about his warranty? Find out on this episode of the Best of Car Talk.

#2310: Patty Settles the Bet
A few shows back we got a call from Patty in nearby Somerville, MA who wondered whether her mother should be driving an old Toyota from Texas up to see her. Our knuckleheads couldn't agree and instead decided to make a bet: if she makes it, Ray has to replace the '65 Rambler of Tommy's that he sent to the crusher years ago. Will she or won't she?
