Summary
Automobiles are amazing machines that take most of us from place to place on a daily basis. From their earliest days, making them safe to drive took lots of hard work and ingenuity. From early explosions with steam and failed experiments with batteries, automobiles have come a long way. Early cars needed to lug around spare parts and extra tires just to drive a few miles. Readers find out all about the amazing inventors who worked so hard to make motor vehicles the modern marvels they are today.
