A 2004 Toyota Sienna was donated to WUNC through the Car Talk Vehicle Donation Program. The donors created many memories with the van, with each family member sharing with us the things that made the Toyota so special and memorable.
This van has been a significant object in our family life, it was there as our family was starting to grow. We went from one child to two so just as our family grew, so, too our family transportation had to expand! . . . We loved all the road trips we took in this van, using mad Libs, singing songs, and listening to music – our van was just great times all around.
The donors’ teenage children shared their memories with the car which included road trips to Florida, basketball games, and learning how to drive.

The donors chose to donate the Toyota Sienna to Car Talk in order to support National Public Radio.
We want to support good and fair reporting and getting the truth out there. I love Science Friday and Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me and all the great news reporting and in-depth stories… and my son said he likes Katherine Brand on WUNC, as he so often heard her reports when I picked him up from school. We also like One-A with Joshua Johnson. . . It is our sincere hope, that this van ends up with a family like ours and creates similar memories!
