What happened to Patti on the podcast?

Hi,
I am listening to you pod casts and am curious to know if Patti sommerville, whose Mom was driving up in a 1978 Datsun Station Wagon made the trip? The bet was an interesting one and I’m curious who won and if Patti kept the car.

If you are not aware of it the Podcasts are reruns from years ago. There are not any new shows made for a number of years.

If you’re listening to the podcasts in order, you’ll get your answer, I don’t remember how much later it was.

I don’t remember if Patti called in to report, or if it was a “Stump the Chumps”

The Datsun successfully made the trip, Tommy lost the bet (and thereafter couldn’t mention Black Beauty), I think Patti kept the car, thought I’m not 100% sure on that one…

That was the last time she called but at the time the car was being driven daily around the new hometown.
