Always thought along those lines.A car is super-safe,because of the tyres.
Was in the wheelhouse of a big (100') steel fishing trawler once when hit by lightning,whole wheelhouse lit up with a blueish light for about 2 seconds,no damage done,but it was a sight

You can mock all you want Herman but we all know how much you want one,
