JACK KEROUAC-- The author of "On the Road" drove rarely and hesitantly, once saying he didn't "know how to drive, just typewrite." He also didn't know much about punctuation.
VLADIMIR NABOKAV-- The nondriver wrote "Lolita" in which a key character was fatally struck by a car.
ERICH VON STROHEIM-- When he played the chaffeur in the film "Sunset Boulevard," he was only pretending to drive. The car was actually being towed.
ELIZABETH BISHOP-- The famous poet bought at least two cars, but didn't learn how to drive wither one.
ALBERT EINSTEIN-- Who says he was a genius. He didn't even know how to drive.
I'm adding JOE WALSH of the James Gang and Eagles and solo, who in that one song wrote that he had a Mazzeratti but didn't drive it. Well, actually he didn't drive it because he lost his license, but he did have a chaffeur to drive him around.
