Cars   

1     A long time ago there were no cars. It was hard to go from place to place. People walked. People rode horses. People drove horses with wagons or buggies. Today, people still walk and use horses. But they also drive cars. Cars are faster. Cars are comfortable.
 
2     Do you know who invented cars?
 
3     Many people think a French man named Nicolas Cugnot did. He made the first car in 1769. The first car had only three wheels. It did not use gas. It used steam! Nicolas Cugnot was also the first man in a car crash. He drove his car into a brick wall! When he drove his car, he was only moving about as fast as you can walk.
