When i was little, my gramma would tell me about how cars used to have to be plugged in in order to work. I was always thinking that they had a special car outlet, and then i was thinking that the car wouldnt be able to get very far being plugged into a wall..not even with an extension cord.

I used to believe that the handles that help people in and out of cars were actually "pregnancy handles" for women who were in labor to clutch during their ride to the hospital.

When I was little we had a big Buick Riviera with power seats. My dad told me that if I put my feet under the seat when he moved it, my feet would turn into hamburger. I kept my feet out of there!

When I was very little I used to believe that the big yellow-colored machinery vehicles (bulldozers, back-hoes, etc) were so big that they took up both lanes in the road (all 4 if we were on a big highway) and all the cars that wanted to go through would have to drive under them. I was terrified of this because I thought that they were so low to the ground that if your car was too tall it would get crushed. This also explained why the traffic got slower near construction sites: because the other people were terrified of getting crushed by driving under the machines, so they would be forced to just follow behind these machines which I thought could only go up to about 5 miles per hour.
You can imagine my relief when there was one on the road ahead of us and we just drove past it in the other lane.

I thought an automatic car (i.e. automatic transmission) meant the car drove itself just like "Herbie" in the Walt Disney films. I was constantly on the look out for one of these "automatic cars".

I used to belive that only men drove trucks and women drove cars. Then, one day I saw a woman in an SUV and I was really confused.

I used to believe that handicapped parking places were for only wheelchairs and not cars. So I was sad for the old people because since wheel chairs had no doors or locks, someone would steal them. And I also wondered how would they walk all the way to the store if they left their wheelchair... I beleived this until I was 10... Weird kid I am right?

I thought that turning on the blinkers (either left or right) automatically slowed down the vehicle, kind of like a gentle brake.

When I was like 7, my mom told me that if I didn't put on my seat belt, the cops siren and lights would go off and take me to jail. So for a long time, I always had my seatbelt.

I used to think that those eighteen-wheelers never had drivers. They were just cruising along on their own, like robots or something. Imagine my surprise when I happened to look up one day from my car-seat to see a man sitting behind the wheel of one of those big, robot trucks. I still amuse myself thinking about it to this day.

When I was little I had no idea how power windows worked. Until the time I was 7 I belived my mother was magic because she would say a magic word and ::poof:: her window would go down!

I used to believe that if you and someone else sticked their arm out of both sides of the car window when the car is going and flapped them, the car would fly.

When I was about 5 or 6 my dad told me that late at night when everyone was asleep all of the cars that were parked outside started up by themselves and hung out together. I would try to stay awake to see it, but he told me that they would know if I was awake or not and if I was they wouldn't hang out together.

I used to believe that new cars were built right at the dealerships before being put out for show on the lot.

I used to think that cruise control meant the car steered itself. I always wondered how it knew when to take curves.

My father always drove a truck, and my mother a car. So naturally I believed that only men could drive trucks, and women could drive cars. Then one day my moms car wouldn't start, so she drove the truck to the grocery store. Of course I had to ask her if it was legal.

When I was younger I always thought that all the cars on the left side of the road all had white lights only and all the cars on the right had red lights only. I was soo confused when I found out that our car had white lights too!
