about this item

The Brothers Grimm told tales that in their original, unedited form were strange, sometimes rambling, and of dubious moral integrity—in other words, they’re the perfect model for our Brothers Grime, the Tappet Brothers. America’s favorite auto mechanics share reminiscences, rants, and hate mail in another time-wasting yet genuinely useful collection of highlights from their long-running radio show.So one day the guys were at a restaurant enjoying a cake someone delivered to their table. On their way out, they realized their mistake: It wasn’t their cake after all. It was Grammy’s birthday cake, bound for a party at a nearby table. They apologized later on the air.Tom and Ray lead colorful (not to mention grimy) lives, and each week they share the hilarity with millions of radio listeners. Their latest collection will delight diehard fans and anyone who cares about cars and good humor. Along with the usual dose of belly laughs, it includes Tommy’s memories of his misadventures in the US Army, stories from the guys about their beloved pal Vito, and the debut performance of the Click and Clack Barbershop Quartet Minus Two singing “Goodbye My Coney Island Baby.” That the debut was also the farewell performance is no coincidence.
