Ray Magliozzi


Ray Magliozzi

Raymond F. Magliozzi (born ca. 1948) is a co-host (with older brother Tom Magliozzi) of NPR's weekly radio show, "Car Talk". He graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1972.

A Cambridge, Massachusetts, native, Ray also spent a few years teaching science in Bennington, Vermont. He moved back to Cambridge and opened a do-it-yourself repair shop, named Hacker's Haven, with his brother. He and his wife, Monique, have two sons, and he spends the bulk of his time running the garage and working on the pair's radio show.

Some, especially Ray, point out that the bulk of the correct diagnoses and advice distributed by "Car Talk" are in fact produced by Ray. He is also responsible for the "Weekly Puzzler".

Ray and his brother Tom had cameo appearances as the Rust-eze owners in the Pixar film, "Cars". In it, they gave their trademark lines "Don't drive like my brother". Ray appeared as a 1964 Dodge A100 van. He and Tom also made a cameo appearance on the children's show "Arthur".

Ray stars with Tom in the PBS animated series, "Click and Clack's As the Wrench Turns", based on "Car Talk".

Like his brother, Ray is colorblind.
