Most of the recalled GM vehicles are over 170 inches long.
Using that as an underestimate, if you lined up the cars bumper to bumper — the world’s longest traffic jam — they’d stretch for over 160,000 km. The Earth’s circumference is 40,075 km. A Long Line of Cars indeed, Cake.
If you stacked these cars up bumper to bumper, you’d cross the Kármán line, the altitude of 100 km (62 miles) above sea level that divides the Earth’s atmosphere from outer space. Stack all of GM’s 2014 recalled cars and you’d be halfway to the moon, which is 384,403 km away. NASA, call your office.
