I have a confession to make. I’m not much of a car guy. There, I said it! When it comes to cars, I’m pretty boring.

- Engine: The part of a car that converts fuel into energy, which is then used to power the vehicle.
- Transmission: A device that changes gears and then transmits power from one gear to another while driving.
- Drivetrain: The system of gears and shafts that connect an engine to its wheels and allow it to move forward or backward.
- Wheels: The part of a vehicle that touches ground when you’re driving, providing traction so your vehicle doesn’t slip off course or get stuck in mud (or whatever). They also look cool!
