When I was little I thought rubber and gasoline would explode, so I'd always put erasers in the glove box when we got gas.

When I was about seven I used to believe that where the roads are now, there was a really deep hole and they had to build the roads over it. In fact, it was so deep, that anyone who fell in it would never be able to climb out. I remember driving in the car with my parents when they commented that the new road had a lot of cracks in it. I immediately started crying, believing that the road was going to cave in and we would all have to live underground for the rest of our lives.

I used to believe that car windscreens knew when it was raining and they were getting wet; and so the windscreens turned the wipers on and off, and regulated the speed of them automatically. Didn't occur to me that the driver had anything to do with that part.

I think I was a bit ahead of my time.

I used to believe that car exhaust turned the wheels of the car and that pressing the brake pedal would extend a stick that would skid on the road to slow the car.

I used to believe that car air conditioning was made because their were ice cubes all along the inside of the car. The hot air from outside would be sucked into the ice cubes, pass them, then blow the cold air on me.

When I was younger I always believed that somehow our family car knew where we were going and had its own brain and it was a person disguised as a man. I was deathly scared of the "car man". I thought the car always knew where we were going because of the turn signals, i never knew until i was 10 that my parents would flip the turning signal on. Once i realized that i was less afraid of the family car and the "car man". I still today get carefully in the car because part of me still believes that their really is such thing as a "car man"

A friend of mine believed until he was in his teens that the shape of the truck indicated what it was carrying. Therefore rectangle trucks carried tissue boxes, tank trucks carried cans etc.

When I was about 9 or so, my mother was shopping for a used car, at that time I believed that the more miles a vehicle had the further it would go. I found a car that had 60,000 miles on it and desperately tried convincing my mom to buy the car, when I explained to her that if she got the car with only 7,000 miles she wouldn't be able to go 60,000 miles unless she bought the car that had 60,000 miles she laughed and later explained to me the "truth behind car milage". :)

I was about 4 years old and i remeber thinking, how hard it must be to drive.Because you had to look through your front window, and through the back window of the car in front of you, and then through their front window, and again through the back window of the next car to drive on the road... so i was a *special* kid...leave me alone...

My family and I would go on road trips every year. My parents would always tell me to wear my seatbelt but what did I care nothing bad was really going to happen if I wasn't wearing it. I told this to my sister and she told me that the little man on the seatbelt safety light would come kill me if I didn't wear it. Apparently, mom and dad neglected to tell me that bit. I never forgot to buckle up after that.

Up until the age of about 8, I used to think that people actualybrought their cars with strange triangular boxes on top of them, and I just used to think,"why would people pay for that?! why don't they just have a normal car?" but then slowly, I began to learn that they were learner cars and weren't sold to the public at all, how silly!

My dad used to drive a rolls royce lorry and when he left the job he took the Rolls Royce badge off the lorry. years later my family had an FSO, which is a form of Lader, in other words pretty much the worst car on the market. my dad wittily put the rolls royce badge on the front. when i was 6 my class teacher asked us what type of car we had, when it got to me i replied "A Rolls Royce". naturally the teacher doubted this some what and said she'd ask my mum. she must have been quite amused when she found out i had an lader! lol.
Bizzarely someone tried to steal the rolls royce badge off the front of our car.

When I was younger I knew that the earth spun. Well, I assumed then that when you were driving, the car wasn't really moving, the earth was spinning and the wheels moved to let the earth spin while the car stayed still!

I used to believe that the button in a car for the four ways was the "air bag" button, and you pressed it right before you had an accident. My boyfriend told me that when I was sixteen, and I believed it until I pressed it for myself to se eif he was telling the truth.
