What Automotive Myth Do You Wish Were True?

Illustration for article titled What Automotive Myth Do You Wish Were True?

Cars sit in that wonderful sweet spot of being both extremely common and also complex enough that they generate a nice ecosystem of mythology around them. And there's plenty of great car myths around — Chevy Vegas had washing machine motors, VTEC is something that can kick in, yo, and overdrive is like a turbo boost. So which one would you want to be true?


So if we're sticking with the myths that we wish were reality, I think the idea that somehow, putting 'race gas' or any form of super high-octane gas will magically turn even your 75 HP '82 Accord into an instant track monster. The idea of a magical fluid you can pump into any shitbox and make it a screamer is just too appealing to ignore.


So what about you kooks? What bit of automotive fiction do you wish were real?
