we used to use automatic car washes all the time, and the window i sat next to in the car had a leak(like, 3 drops would get in). i convinced myself that if the window had a leak the car would fill up and i'd drown. i wigged out so bad that every time we'd use the car wash, i'd get out and wait for them to come through!
I used to think ( when i was about 5 ) that whenever my mom put lots of groceries in the back of the car, it would tip over! I know better know though.
I used to believe that if I lay facing my window at night, cars with glowing eyes and sharp teeth would come through the window and take me away forever.
i used to believe that whenever the tyre of a car passes over a cigarette butt on the street the car will explode immediately. i was really wondering how could all the drivers avoid passing over the cigarette butts on the street so that all these cars do not explode.
When I was about 7 years old, my father, working as a diving instructor, told me that two of his students, one blind and the other almost blind, were driving around together. The car was built of the blind man, and the other was telling him where to drive all the time...
Now I'm 33, and there was just a few years ago i figured out that my father was tricking me!
When I was about 3-7 years old, my parents parked their cars in a drive way that was directly behind our living room wall, and whenever we would be sitting in the living room at night, I was afraid that my parent's cars would start up on their own and try to kill us all by running through the living room wall and run us over.
I used to think that if i stuck my arm out the window while in a moving car, it would get caught in the other cars' windows when they rolled them up. I also thought that if i stuck my head out, rocks would fly into my eyes
when i was younger and for years i used have to run up to somthing before a car would pass. but if the car passed me on the road before i could get to , say a lamp post. somthing bad would happen. i couldnt go asny where without having to do this. it ruined my life
I remeber when i was about 5( 8 yrs. ago) that when the car door autamatically locked, that the energizer bunny, the one with the drums did it, dont ask me why I thought that, i was 5.
When I was around 7 yrs, i beleived that cars and bikes moved forward because of the thrust and gasses which came out of the silencer which was actually situated at the rear end, just like the rockets. After few years I realized that the trucks and buses had the exhaust pipe on their sides then why didnt they moved sideways,,,,, then my father made it clear to me that they actually moved because of their engines which rotates the tyres.
I asked my dad where the tires come from on cars and he told me that when an airplane would fly over head they would drop their tires for the cars. I then asked what did the airplane do....he was not thinking ahead like I was
i thought that the 1977 bonneville that we had in the mid 1980s was really a limosine. i went to a catholic school with a bunch of rich kids (my parents worked hard to send us there) so i felt like i fit in cuz i thought it was a limo. a mustard colored limo.
I haven't got a full drivers license yet so my driving is still "premier" learners permit quality. My six year old niece wanted to know "why the road is always bumpy when Melvin's driving"!
When I used to be in the car with my friend and her dad, he would tell us off because the windows were steaming up and say it was our fault for breathing and that we should stop it. I would try to hold my breath for the entire journey because I thought he was serious, and try and be really gentle when I had to exhale. I really thought he was serious - I could've made myself ill!!
I used to believe that when adults mentioned horsepower that there were Horses under the bonnet
I used to believe that my dad could turn the rain of when we were on the motorway in the car and we went under a tunnel the rain would go off . We used to lean forward in the car to see what button he was pressing he did this for years untill we noticed .
I used to believe that a cars rear exhaust pipe provided the power to propel the car forward. I always remember avoiding walking anywhere near the rear of a car for fear of being 'blown' off my feet.
I used to believe when I was young that the head and tail lamp of the cars are lighted through external electric wires.
I used to belive that all cars could talk to each other when thay were in a car park but only if thay came from the same country, so if you park a german car next to anothr german car thay would be happy till you drove away.
When ever we went to the gas station, it was to replace the blinker fluid.
