Dear DP,

I have been searching relentlessly for a quote from an interview you gave on NPR. A good friend of mine has sited you as having the true insight on those that own French cars. I would like to find the exact… or at least approximate quote (or get the essential scoop from you) so that I can have it printed and framed for my husband. You see, he repairs and restores Citroens… an occupation that makes for many interesting encounters and queries from those of us with some sense of practicality.

Yours truly,

Jamie B.

The Car Talk site should have some reference to the ""Theory of Displaced Misery."" I think that is what you're looking for.
