Actually, it works like this: If the driver of a car lives through the
experience he will most likely buy another car of the same type. This is
why the car makers that build cars that kill their owners tend to be
selected against. This is the selection part of the evolution. From time
to time a new car company will "spin off" from an existing company and
start making cars with a slightly different design. This is the
reproduction part of evolution.
