A Song for the road

Contributed by softerware on Tuesday, 4th June 2019 @ 07:28:09 AM in AEST
Topic: Lifepoems

We buy them and we sit in them in traffic jams a lot! Heres some facts to read when trapped, with all that time youíve got!

Three quarters of all Rolls Royces that were ever made;
Are still out there in good repair, and on the road today.

The tax man wasnít very far, when Oprah gave away ďfreeĒ cars,
Before her viewers got their keys, uncle sam took 6 grand each.

Our cars have 30,000 parts, and spend most of their lifetime parked!

13,000 vehicles (whew!) Toyota makes per day.
Ferrari only makes 14; costs us more that way.

Porsche ignitions are left of the wheel; When Porsches were racing it was a big deal;
To start and shift was faster man, when they could do it with both hands!

The computer in a Bentley takes hours to set weíre told.
Itís refined design requires 100 million lines of code.

Donít race the police in Dubai; the cops have speedy cars.
Bugattis to outrun you at 250 miles per hour!
To use 1000 horsepower and 16 cylinders that
Climb from zero to 60 in just 2 seconds flat. (Wow. Imagine that!)

Volvo didnít patent seatbelts, though they did invent them;
So anyone could copy them, and that was their intention.

Our headlights are the beams of light that let us see ahead
Thatís what we call our headlamps, mistakenly, instead.

You call it THE GAS today, a word invented later.
In olden days it once was known as the accelerator.

Vulcanized rubber for auto tires was found cause bail failed;
Charles Goodyear had invented it while he was locked in jail.

That triangle by our fuel icon sheds a little light
On where our gas door can be found, on the left or right!

Ralph Teetor never saw or used the systems he designed;
He invented cruise control, and was completely blind.

It doesnít pay in Switzerland to play the rich pretender;
Their speeding ticket costs are based on incomes of offenders!

Donít drive around South Africa, official records say,
40 cars are hijacked there every single day!

Time for a commercial, to end this with a chuckle;
Check those mirrors, watch for kids, and donít forget to buckle!

As always very informative
I work for a state thruway
so many cars I see every day
gives me other things to think about
as they go through my lane....
