Racecars and Palindromes

"Mom, what's a palindrome?" These words were uttered just minutes ago by my 8 year old. She was expecting an example, and my wife replied with one..."Mom, she said." "Oh, I was thinking racecar." What is an 8 year old doing thinking of palindromes anyway?
For those of you who have to look it up (like me), A palindrome is a word or sentence that reads the same forward as it does backward.
Personally, I like racecar. Like the one above - A 1973 Mustang Mach I. I used to have one, it was really fast and as I drove down the street it would cause me to accelerate quicly after having proclaimed, Was that car or a cat I saw?!
