Fantasy Car

"And I believe the nation that invented the automobile cannot walk away from it."

Huh? The Germans invented the internal-combustion-engine automobile. Our own government agrees: The Library of Congress answers the question, "Who invented the automobile?" with the answer, "Karl Benz." Attributing the automobile to the Americans sounds a little like the old Soviet claim that the Russians invented baseball.
