You know when a tire of a car is hit by a lighting strike it dosen't get affected?
It's because "ruuber" dosen't get affected by electricty so leave yor tires but take off your hupcaps off in a lighting storm



Yeah ut's sounds like something Bam would do from VivaLaBam!

rubber doesn't conduct electricity, or anything really. Hence the usage of rubber gloves in chemistry experiments. Hub caps on the other hand..... I thought most car parts were made of aluminum so as to minimize the risk of lightning strikes. But then again, I'm an auto-illiterate, so I could be wrong.

It's cheaper to make engines and stuff out of cast iron, so most are. They're all either cast iron or aluminum, though.

Shit, at one time cars were made completely from steel.
