when I was little my older brother used to tell me that if I touched the handbrake release button in my dad's car, then I would fly out of the roof la James Bond! I believed him until I passed my driving test and it certainly stopped me from ever releasing the handbrake when I was little!

When I was little, I was very naive to things such as cars and stuff like that so, one day as me and my mom were driving, I noticed that there was a peddle that my mom never used and asked her what it was, she, the funny woman she is thought that it would be funny to tell me that it was a 3rd gas peddle and that when she got the car up to top speed, she would push that peddle in and the car would go faster, I'm sorry to say that I found out the truth when I was 23 and my husband had to inform me that it was not a 3rd gas peddle, but the cluch, I still feel stupid!

When I was younger we used to have this old car that used to talk and whenever you opened the door it would say " The door is a Jar" I always wondered who was saying that and why he was saying the door is a jar till my older sisters friend told me that it was a little man inside the radio and if we left the door open to long it would turn into a jar. I acctuall believed it till.....acctually last year and i am 13. lol

I used to believe that the arrows in the car stating which direction you are turning really told you which direction you are going to take, like the car already knew where you were going beforehand.

top belief!

When I was young, and we would go in the car with mom, that the way she used to get the car to go backwards, was by turning to her right, and putting her arm across the seat. And as soon as she took her arm off the back of the seat, the car would go forward.. Dumb, isn't it.

When i was younger my dad had a Toyota 'SPACE CRUISER' i thought it was called that because if you press a button it cruised to space, only when i was 7 i realised it was called that because it had a lot of space inside

my parents and i used to drive to my grandparents' house almost every weekend, and we had to take the highway to get there. we'd usually come back at night, so everyone's headlights were on. i was absolutely convinced, until i was about 6 or 7, that the lane we were in (where i could see the taillights of cars in front of us) was the lane for cars with red lights, and the other lane (where i could see the headlights if oncoming traffic) was the lane with cars with white lights.

When I was about 3 I believed wholeheartedly, without a doubt, that I could drive. And not just any car, a Volkswagon.

My sister told me that on certain days, you could buy a real car from a vending machine for six dollars.

I asked how they fit them all in there, but she refused to explain any further.

driving back from a trip to disney world when i was around 5 years old, my dad turned on the windshield wipers to wash the windshield, and when the washer fluid sprayed onto the window I asked where that water came from. My mom told me that Dumbo was peeing on the car. I totally believed her and was so amazed that he was following US home.

When i was younger, I am now a modest 22, i was told that the lines on the rear window of a car where there so you could judge the gradient of the hill you were driving up, how? Who's knows, but it seemed like a rational explanation, so i believed it, and when someone asked me what they were i would share my wordly knowledge, thinking i was dead smart and i did this until i was 18!!!!!!! It was only when i bought my own car and when i tried to be a big head on cars in the garage i was corrected by the salesmen and told there were actually to heat up the back window - ummmmmm!

When I was little my dad used to drive this really old car and when he pressed the accelerator it made a loud noise from the exaust. I figured that if more noise comes from the exaust when you go faster, it must be the air coming out of the exaust that pushes the car along. It really screwed my head up when he reversed because there was no exaust at the front.
BOOYAH!
(I believed that I would also invent a 2 exausted car)

When I was little, I overheard someone saying that their car had an air bag so it would be dangerous for little kids to sit in the front. I ran to the person's car and saw a plastic bag full of air inside it. For a few months after that I was scared of plastic bags!

Until I was about 11 I never used to think that cars had pedals, and I thought that you would choose how fast you wanted to go using the gearstick and stop using the handbrake. And until the first time I ever drove a car, I never knew about the clutch pedal - I used to think that you'd just put the car straight into whatever gear you wanted. I was a strange child.

When I was five years old, I believed that a car's cruise control was actually a hot dog in a bun with a baseball cap on. He would jump out from under the driver's seat and step on the gas for you.

When I was about 6 I asked my mom what side of the road we were driving on. She said the right side and I thought that everyone in the world had their own side of the road to drive on!! Like a few people would drive on the right side and some would have to drive on the left side!!

Whenever we'd go on a long car ride at night it would confuse me as to why all the cars going in the same direction as us had red lights, and the ones going the opposite direction had white lights. I spent a long time trying to figure out why... then I decided that you must have to drive on a different road depending on what color lights your car has.

When I was little, I would ride in the car with my mom. Well, on the highway I would see those 18-wheelers and I always told her that seing those meant we were on the highway!
