Clack is gone...

Car Talk's Tom Magliozzi left laughing. Enjoy the ride.

Must-listen radio every weekend.

That's one hell of a quote to end the article too.

Makes me sad.
My sons listened to Click and Clack with me when they were youngsters and became fans too.

They were the BEST! Always funny and always had a message.

Just a couple of old neighborhood garage guys who just happened to be graduates of MIT!

He will be sorely missed. Long live the Tappet Bros.

I never heard an episode that didn't make me want to sit in the car until it was over. What a great show they gave us for so many years! It would make me sad, except just thinking about those two makes me happy.

We listened often to Click and Clack when in the mood for some good laughs; I was sorry to hear about this loss.

Saturday mornings in the car are always more fun when Car Talk is on. RIP Tom.

So sad. Now we know why they had to stop making new shows. He had the best laugh!

Thank you for letting me know. I loved their show and was a regular listener. May God give us peace.

Great show, have been listening for years, even though they did not know what electric brakes were.

Very sad. Started listening to them more than 15 years ago. We'd sit in the car and listen until the show ended, even though we'd already arrived at our destination. Laughed our a**es off. Still love catching the reruns on NPR.

Sad news.

Always downloaded the show onto the iPod. Wife and I listen to them while camping.
I'd rather be boon docking in the desert.

I will miss him. One of my favorite personalities and just a "nice guy".

I understand Ray will try to have the archived episodes continue in memory of Tom. No new shows have been done for about 2 years, most likely due to Tom's onset of Alzheimer's.
