Quotes of the Day for 27 October 2000 – Cars

The automobile is a wonderful thing, almost magical on a Spring day with your sweetheart and plans for a picnic. Most of the time Cars are just big smelly things that you have to have to get somewhere you really didn't want to be in the first place. And then there are days when you spend four hours trying to get five miles - you learn which neighbors have jumper cables. On the other hand, when my car breaks I can get a theme for the day out of it.
