Driving Things, To Think About... Do you think Houdini ever locked his keys in his car? If a car turns into a driveway can you drive on it? If according to your bumper sticker 'Your other car is a Porsche' why are you driving that piece of junk that you've got the sticker on? If you're in a vehicle going the speed of light what happens when you turn on the headlights? Isn't the main difference between pickup trucks and sport-utility vehicles the fact that pickup owners admit theirs are trucks? Remember the little 2 door compact car called the 'Yugo'? If they made a 4 door model would they call it a 'Wego'? Shouldn't car dealers issue a coathanger with a new set of car keys for the inevitable? They say that into every life some rain must fall but why is it always when our car windows are down? What is it about being inside vehicles which entices people to probe the darkest regions of their nostrils? Do these people believe all cars come with one-way glass? When you buy a low mileage used car, do you ever wonder if the previous owner only drove it back and forth to the repair shop? When you're buying a used car shouldn't you punch all the buttons on the radio? After all if all the stations are rock and roll then isn't there a good chance that the transmission will be shot? Where does the Tire Tread go? Why are cars called cars? Why do people in a convertible with the top down have air fresheners hanging from their rear-view mirrors? Just how powerful do they think those things are anyway? Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways? Why do we notice the keys in the ignition only the second the car door is slammed shut? Why does the person driving always get to choose the radio station? Why is it that the first bug to hit a clean windshield lands directly in front of your eyes? Why is the car always out of gas when we're in a hurry? Will the 2005 model Volkswagen Beetle be called the Y2K Bug?
