How cars in the Azores are like the Scottish haggis!

The haggis is one of Scotland's favourite foods. Have you ever heard the story about how the Scots catch one?

According to the Scots, the haggis is a very fast runner. It has two long legs and two short legs because Scotland is a mountainous country and, when it runs round and round the hills, it needs shorter legs on the side high side of the slope and longer legs on the lower side. When it gets to the top though, and there is no more slope to climb, it becomes unbalanced, falls over and rolls down the hill. That's when the Scots can catch it!

The island of São Miguel, with three great dormant volcanoes, is also mountainous. Looking at this garage, it seems that cars in the Azores must have wheels higher on one side than the other, rather like the Scottish haggis, or how else can they get into this garage?
