Car

A car (or automobile) is a wheeled motor vehicle used for transportation. Most definitions of car say they run primarily on roads, seat one to eight people, have four tires, and mainly transport people rather than goods. Cars came into global use during the 20th century, and developed economies depend on them. The year 1886 is regarded as the birth year of the modern car, when German inventor Karl Benz built his Benz Patent-Motorwagen. Cars did not become widely available until the early 20th century. One of the first cars that was accessible to the masses was the 1908 Model T, an American car manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. Cars were rapidly adopted in the US, where they replaced animal-drawn carriages and carts, but took much longer to be accepted in Western Europe and other parts of the world.

Chevy, a bow on a car only works if it's a present and not a burden that is recalled every month.

My First Car

I find it funny how a lot of my friends like to show off their high end luxury cars and I'm driving my reliable 2007 Toyota Corolla. I love my Cori, she has yet to let me down, and honestly I don;t think she will any time soon.
