Tom Magliozzi of Car Talk, dies at the age of 77

Tom Magliozzi

NPR reports that Tom Magliozzi of Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers, hosts of the popular radio show Car Talk has passed away at the age of 77 due to complications from Alzheimer’s disease.

Our condolences go out to Magliozzi family and their many close friends.

The Magliozzi brothers have retired in 2012 but their very funny car talk show is still being played on NPR. Please see a very nice tribute piece written by Craig Fitzgerald at Bestride.com. Those that never heard the show, should. It’s funny and entertaining, but the bottom line is that these guys know their stuff and always managed to offer good advise to callers with limited automotive knowledge.
