Yeah, well I took my car to their garage for a 60,000 mile checkup. It cost over $1400 and they forgot to put a thermostat in the radiator. Liberal thieves.

"Their jokes and jabs," she further states in a follow-up e-mail, "aren't in any way the official views of NPR and its member stations."


Just the NON-official views of NPR and its member stations! Click and Clack are now official history in my book. Idiots!

You know, I actually liked (past tense) these guys because they're funny and entertaining. When will entertainers learn to keep their political opinions to themselves?

Amen to that! Will become harder and harder to continue listening if they continue flapping their traps.

Arrrrrgh.... Will the Republicans ever find the balls to cut the funding for NPR?

I figured they were liberal, but at least they were keeping their mouths shut about it before this. . .

They really do own a shop? What city?

Instead of a tune-up, I'm opting for a tune-out.

Too bad. Frick and Frack are the ONLY thing worth listening to on NPR. I will still enjoy their good humor and car advice. Just because I don't agree with their boorish insults to W, doesn't mean we should not enjoy their talents. How many liberals miss out on great John Wayne movies because of his conservatism?

Yes, they own a shop in Cambridge, MA. It's either the Good News or the Good Times Garage. It's located between the BU Bridge and Central Square.

I don't think they're very good, however. And they charge huge amounts of money.

I know someone who was buying a car and took it to them to have it checked. Click/clack said it was in perfect condition. In fact it needed a new air conditioning system.

Do I sound like I recommend them?
