Mink Car is the eighth studio album by They Might Be Giants, released in 2001 (see 2001 in music) on Restless Records.

One of the band's most eclectic efforts, its variety reflects its recording: it was put together in a number of different studios, with a number of different producers, around the country as the band toured between 1999 and 2001.

It runs the gamut from pure power-pop ("Bangs", "Finished With Lies") to dance music ("Man, It's So Loud In Here"), and even a soft romantic ballad ("Another First Kiss"). Its cover of the Georgie Fame oldie "Yeh Yeh" was featured in a Chrysler commercial.
