Also, consider your car—what is it? Well, it is a form of freedom. If it runs well, then it gives you the freedom of the road. And imagine the roads, think about your driveway and the distances it connects you to. It’s amazing when you think about it. Somebody in New York City is connected to the same network of unbroken roads that somebody in Los Angeles is.

So, both the car and the feather symbolize freedom. Therefore, when you combine them, it amplifies that symbol.
