The Special, Non-moving Car Part

The Puzzler

RAY: This puzzler was sent in by someone named John, who didn't divulge his last name. He said, 'It's high time you guys used an automotive puzzler.'

His puzzler is very simple. A car is traveling at 60 mph. You're standing by the side of the road, or lying on the road as the case may be. Can you name a part, or parts, of the car, that are not moving in relation to the road?

If needed, x-ray vision is permitted.

That's Part A.

Part 2-- and this is a hint-- what part of the car is traveling at 120 mph?

Think you know? Drop Ray a note!
