Tom Magliozzi, co-host of the long-running weekly National Public Radio show "Car Talk," died on Monday of complications from Alzheimer's disease, the broadcast network said. He was 77.Magliozzi and his younger brother Ray became famous as the self-deprecating radio mechanics "Click and Clack the Tappet Brothers" on their popular weekend call-in program, sharing jokes, banter and automobile advice.

The program, which was taped at Boston public radio affiliate WBUR, has continued to air in re-runs following the pair's retirement two years ago after more than three decades on the air.

The brothers provided the voices for animated cars in the blockbuster 2006 Disney Pixar film "Cars."

A syndicated column written by the brothers appeared for several years in The Forum.
