We went to a restaurant this afternoon and an old Cadillac was sitting in the parking lot. It still had the old license plate on it and it was dated 1957! We wondered if it was being used in a movie or if someone just decided to get it out of the garage and take it for a spin.
Here, they used shredded tires for the new exercise area near our county's walking trails. They ran something in the paper about bringing your old tires to a certain place for a set amount of time. I guess a lot of people did.
When I was first starting to drive, a guy gave me some feathers on a clip. I didn't know it was a "roach clip" and hung it from my mirror. I just thought they were pretty and he was cute. My mother found out what it was and destroyed it. I have never hung anything from my mirror since.
I always heard that lightning wouldn't strike a car because of the tires. When it does hit a car, it means the car was actually touching something metal that was touching the ground and acting as a conductor.
