Cars consist of a LOT of common things, including a steering wheel, wheels, and an engine, (This is commonly a V8, 'V' standing for 'Valve', and 8 meaning the number of the valve's). But they also consist of things you wouldn't think of instantly, such as a chassis ('shas-ee'. The base of the car), suspension (springs keeping the wheels separated from the car), and a grill (The front 'cage' part of the car, letting air through for the air conditioner, but not much else).
