Ever wish that a car could be like hurbie or bubblebee ...
well I have a story to tell... my grandad bought a 1971 oldsmobile custlass s model . She is so pretty ! We named her sweet 71 . (Please dont remove my post i will get to the belive ) anyway i nicknamed her sweetc . She sits in the garge a lot of times i go to see my granddad but there are a few cases where she acts alive .. one is when my grandad starts her up on a cool day the car chaters like its shivering . But when it warms up it stops . The next one is I like to talk to her while I sit and pretend to drive her . I had the radio in her on and the radio faded and i was like weard ? And i said what happened sweetc ? Soon the song dimond ring and old bar stools by tim mcgraw came on and many time i said i love you to her . And she said by unfadeing the radio at the right moment to say (i love you and see i told you so..) and it faded . I hope you think this is cute and she has other storys to but thats some of the best ones . Thanks for reading (maby sweet71 is alive after all?)

When I was little, I thought that I could open the trunk of a car with my mind. When I went grocery shopping with my dad and he was carrying the bags, I'd just "open" the trunk for him. He would congratulate me, and I would proudly say "Well, I am a witch!" One day my mom showed me the button on the keys that opened the trunk. My little heart was shattered.

My parents drove a stick shift and I noticed them moving it back to first gear at stops. When I was little I thought they were just wiggling the stick around for fun every so often.

I used to believe that the people at the radio station were singing and that's how the music got on there. Needless to say I didn't know much about recordings

When I was younger I used to think that as soon as you got in the drivers seat in a car, you knew exactly where everything in the world was and how to drive there.

I used to (when I was about 9 or 10) think that license plate numbers were talking in code to me. So I would memorize license plate numbers and thought they were speaking to me.

When I was a little, I often used to see one and the same dream. The thing is that strange car chased me, I tried to escape, but car didn't have any barriers. It was really terrible and I still get nervous when I dream something like that.

I used to believe that when people tailgating before a sporting event meant the same as tailgating on the road, and I wondered why people would drive around for hours really closely behind people before games. I believed this well into my teens!

My friend had a five year old son who wad convinced that Volkswagon Beetles were the baby form of the larger Volkswagon vans like the one his family owned!He was even sure that he had seen a van "mating" with another vehicle- his mom thought maybe he had seen a van being towed and that's why why one end appeared to be up in the air and stuck to another vehicle.

I used to think that crash test dummies were people who'd been in car accidents, and anyone who had an accident would look like that forever afterwards. I'd seen too many car commercials where they show footage of the crash tests, I guess.

I used to believe the car always knew where you were going, and always gave you directions on where to turn, by the dash lights. Now...... they actually do....

When I was younger I didn't understand how cars fit inside a lane on the road because when you are sitting on the inside of the car, it looks like you take up the whole road.

When I was little (maybe 5 or 6?), I was allowed to sit in the front seat of my mom's old car. When I couldn't sit in the front seat of newer cars and asked why, she said it was because they had air bags. When I asked what air bags were, she described them as a balloon that comes out when the car gets into an accident. So for years I pictured a helium-filled balloon floating up next to the car to alert anyone nearby that an accident had occurred.

When I was little my dad had a corvette and he glued a switch below the radio that said turbo on it. Whenever he said it was OK I'd flip the switch and he'd floor it. I always turned it off soon after so we didn't crash. I also made sure to keep my hands away from it so I didn't cause an accident by using it at the wrong time.

I always thought that people slowed down when passing car accidents because the accidents reminded them of their own mortality or led them to believe that it was a particularly dangerous patch of road, to be driven cautiously.

When I was a kid I used to think that the car knew where to go after we all got in and my step dad sat behind the steering wheel.He said what do you think I'm sitting here for? I shrugged my shoulders and then said..I dunno?? maybe just holding onto it for whatever reason???
