    Indeed! That is an interesting point.

    Another interest thing is that this old post is still getting added to. That goes to show that no post ever dies. =)

    Here's the etymology of car according to dictionary.com:
    [Middle English carre, cart, from Old North French, from Latin carra, pl. of carrus, carrum, a Gallic type of wagon. See kers- in Indo-European Roots.]
