Famous quotes containing the words cars and/or motor:

    The reason American cars don’t sell anymore is that they have forgotten how to design the American Dream. What does it matter if you buy a car today or six months from now, because cars are not beautiful. That’s why the American auto industry is in trouble: no design, no desire.
    Karl Lagerfeld (b. 1938)

    What shall we do with country quiet now?
    A motor drones insanely in the blue
    Like a bad bird in a dream.
    Babette Deutsch (1895–1982)
