After watching a poor kid learning to drive a stick with my car, I'll carry in the wheels and tires. Better than having my car stuck in a wall because someone couldn't find reverse.

It would seem the power train was designed to sustain a lifetime of a 4,000lb car launching with 420lb/ft.. Stress on the gears holding the fractional weight of the car?? Hysterical!!!

"Person of the year" is prob a copyrighted award and cannot be changed to suit grammatical needs. If they changed it, perhaps it would have legal or trademark implications.
