Default RIP Mr Tappit

Very sad to hear of the passing of one of the Tappit Brothers. They were a hoot to listen to on Sunday mornings. If you were a car guy it made the show a degree more entertaining because you could get some of the inside humor in the advice they would give to callers. If you haven't heard the show and have seen the Disney movie Cars they played the voices of Lighting'* sponcers the Rusteze guys.

Guys were awesome. On Sirius/XM they played eight shows in a row on one of the NPR feeds- was good listening while on a road trip to pick up a broken S10.

A very interesting note about the brothers. THEY WERE BOTH GRADUATES OF MIT, ONE OF THE WORLDS BEST ENGINEERING COLLEGES. And they chose auto repair as their profession. Neat story....
