When I was about 5 or 6 my mum and I got in a car wreck when the wheel slipped on a sheet of ice. We did 1 or 2 360s that my mum called donuts later when she was explaining to the family what happened. So, for years when I would tell the story I would tell everyone that one time my mum and I got into a wreck because we slipped on a donut that was left on the side of the road. My mum still picks on me for it.
when i was 3 my dad didn't like the skylight on the car open. 1 day i asked him why and he said that dinosaurs might reach in and bite his head off, even though dinosaurs were "estink". i am soooooo smart
I believed when going in the car that it was on a big scalextric track and the earth moved underneath us and we stayed still
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! :)
