Treasure Hunt

Subscriber onlyDEAR HELAINE AND JOE: In 1972, I went on a trip to Natchitoches and Melrose Plantation in Louisiana. At the plantation, we bought two paintings from an elderly woman. I asked her if she had any more, and she replied, "only one, that's not dry." I bought it, and later found out I had bought it from Clementene Hunter. Aside from being wet when I bought it, it appears to be unfinished. Can you tell me who she was and about my painting? Continue reading...

CAR TALK

Subscriber onlyDEAR CAR TALK: I own a 2002 Chevy Suburban with 178,000 miles. I bought it from my brother-in-law for $3,000 for my son to drive while in college. It has died several times on the highway, causing him to pull over quickly to get out of the way of traffic. Before it dies, he feels a jerkiness or a rumbling. The car then loses acceleration, and pushing on the gas pedal gets no response. He can then coast to a stop or push the brake pedal to stop on the shoulder. It usually will restart in a minute or two, and runs normally thereafter. Occasionally, it has died several times within an hour while driving on the highway. Recently, the Suburban died on the highway on our way to visit family for a holiday. After restarting, it ran for over an hour, getting us to our destination without an issue. The dealership can't seem to find anything wrong with it. However, they say the fuel pump is on the low end, but they tell me it appears to be within the range required for the vehicle. What should I have the dealership replace or check? Continue reading...
