Webster's 1913 Dictionary
 
 Definition: 
\Au`to*mo"bile\, n. [F.]
An automobile vehicle or mechanism; esp., a self-propelled
vehicle suitable for use on a street or roadway. Automobiles
are usually propelled by internal combustion engines (using
volatile inflammable liquids, as gasoline or petrol, alcohol,
naphtha, etc.), steam engines, or electric motors. The power
of the driving motor varies from about 4 to 50 H. P. for
ordinary vehicles, ranging from the run-about to the touring
car, up to as high as 200 H. P. for specially built racing
cars. Automobiles are also commonly, and generally in British
usage, called {motor cars}.

 
Dream Dictionary
 
 Definition: Vehicles that you ride in usually reflect two things; the direction you are heading in life, and your body. (the thing you travel or "ride" through life in) This might vary if you are a mechanic or designer of vehicles. Unusually over exposure to a specific vehicle type may easily change the meaning. The condition of the vehicle might give you an idea of your health. Driving an old beat up car down a muddy road on a stormy night would be considered a pretty bad dream! However flying a Lear jet through blue skies with a song in your heart and the wind at your tail would be a rather good dream. :)
