I used to believe that I could see over the clouds if I looked thru the tinted part on a cars windshield. I believed that I could see God and the Angels looking down at us. I would always ask my mom if she wanted me to check up on my great grandma!
i didn't know what slug bugs were. so when people hit me when one went by, i thought they were going to hit me with a sluggish bug.
I used to think that to drive a car you had to know how to go everywhere because how else would you know which side of the road to drive on?
My mum had a car called an Imp and I was convinced that the noise the indicators made was the car saying 'take look', which told other cars to look out because we were turning.
For years I believed that indicators were called 'take looks'. It probably didn't help that my parents humoured me by calling them that.
When I was about three years old, I remember being in a car that was stuck in a traffic jam for ages, and behind a caravan. This made me think that the caravan was called a "traffic jam"
I used to believe that drag racing actually involved men in drag.
I used to think that car tires were giant Oreos. I have no idea why.
When we were kids, my little brother was convinced that hazzard lights on cars meant that the person driving that car was going to turn BOTH ways
I used to believe that when you crossed over a bridge, you had to actually drive over the top of it. So your car would have to reach the top points & I thought we would fall into the water. The first time I remember going over a bridge was the Mississippi River & I was scared to death that we would fall off the tip of one of the points. When we got closer I realized that there was a road you drove on under the supports.
I used to believe that if you drove over a banana peel the car would slide off the road.
Once my mum came home from a shopping trip when I was about 5, saying that while driving home the she had been 'drawn like a magnet' towards some shop or other. I couldn't work out how this was possible, imagining as I did the car being attracted by a huge horseshoe shaped magnet floating in the sky!
When I was a little kid the "Put on your seatbelt" light came on in the car and I asked my dad what it was and it looked like a bench so my dad said it would come on when the car wanted him to take me to the park. I totally believed him!
I used to believe that without a license, people were somehow phyiscally incapable of driving.
I used to be terrified of the hook that you can hang your clothes on in the backseat of the car. I thought the screw in the middle was it's eye and the hook was it's finger. I always had to sit in the middle.
I grew up in the poorest country of the hemisphere (Nicaragua) where automobiles are mainly rich's people luxury. In my early twenty, and quite a good looking girl, I used to think that cars' blinking lights were a compliment to me -- like when people wink!! (Usually a man's wink, in Nicaragua is considered a compliment)
Not that I am so vain, just naive.
I used to believe that motorway pile-ups meant cars literally stacked one on top of the other. When I read about a "3 car pile-up" it amazed me that cars could crash in such a way that they'd be sitting on top of each other!
When i was a young teenage driver, whenever my car battery needed to be "jumped off" with jumper cables, i thought it was called "jacking off" my car, and i proceeded to ask someone to "jack off" my car on several different occasions - oops! :)
I have always loved cars and driving since I was a little girl. I remember thinking to myself that all the cars on the streets were actually in a line. There was someone in the beginning of the line as there was in the middle and end going where everyone had to go. I always wondered where the first person was and where they will stop so the next person can be first in the line.
When I was little, we used to take car trips a lot, and from time to time we got a flat tire. From watching my dad change flats, I believed that the hubcap was what held the tires on the car, and if you didn't put it back on, your tires would all fall off. I figured that's why there were all those places along the road with hubcaps for sale - in case you lost one.
Whenever I was little, I used to be afraid to open the window in the car because I was afraid of my mind blowing away.
