Hi, Randy,

The reason you're not allowed to create a variable named "x" is  
because all players already automatically have a system-defined  
variable named x -- the horizontal cartesian coordinate.  So "Car's  
x" would become ambiguous if Car, in addition to having its built-in,  
system-defined variable named "x", could also define its own "x"
