Click and Clack and the Car of the Future

So yesterday afternoon I went over to Bainer Hall check up on a crew we’d heard about filming a documentary for PBS. They were interviewing Professor Andy Frank about his work on plug-in hybrid vehicles. I was talking to the producer outside when two guys walked out of the bay, and he said, “come and meet Tom and Ray Magliozzi,” at which point I managed to say nothing very intelligent at all.

The Magliozzi brothers, also known to NPR listeners as Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers, have been traveling the country filming a documentary, “Car of the Future,” for NOVA. The film is set to air this Fall. UC Davis is one of their last stops, to talk to Andy Frank about the plug-in hybrids and get a ride in Trinity, the latest vehicle produced by UC Davis’s “Team Fate.”

Unfortunately, by the time I got there, Click and Clack were about to leave for the airport… and I really wanted to ask them about changing my transmission fluid.
