Car Talk meets Car Chat
This showed up in my mail today from Tom and Ray Magliozzi, the entertaining hosts of NPRs "Car Talk" and inspiration for their counterparts, Tim and Roy, hosts of "Car Chat" (shown below) from SCOOBY-DOO #153, published by DC Comics.
This story was written by me with Matt Jenkins handling the drawing, Rob Clark Jr. doing the lettering, Heroic Age tackling the colors, and Harvey Richards editing the whole thing.
Tom and Ray were delighted by their appearance in Scooby-Doo. I figured that with all of the problems that Freddie has with the Mystery Machine, that he'd not only be a big fan of their call-in car repair radio show, but he'd also be regularly calling in to the show to get their advice. Now you can see the faces of the real men who inspired the story.
