It's amazing how every car maker uses wheels and tires too. Surely someone would have come up with something different by now. And I bet all pistons are cylindrical in shape too...and they thought I wouldn't pick up on that.

Hasn't someone (Honda?) experimented with oval pistons before?

*EDIT*

Yep, they did it in a motorcycle (the 1992 Honda NR):

I remember that...but it's still a cylinder. It's just not a circular cylinder.

Now that we've got that squared away, I want to know who invented the body crease. Car body. Everyone else is a filthy plagiarist.
