Thomas Louis Magliozzi was one of the co-hosts of NPR's weekly radio show Car Talk alongside his brother Ray, where they were known as "Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers". Their show was honored with a Peabody Award in 1992.

For Disney, Tom voiced Rusty Rust-eze in Disney/Pixar's Cars. He passed away at the age of 77 in 2014 due to complications from Alzheimer's disease.[2] However, despite this, numerous sites, including Animation Magazine, stated that his voice was re-used for Rusty in Cars 3.[3]
