Who was First?

Who invented the car has been a long-standing search,
Was it Cugnot, Benz, or Anderson of the Anglican Church,
The French, the German or the Scottish nationality,
That was the first to drive a car (I keep my neutrality),
Everyone wants to know who was first to invent the car,
Even if such national obsession may seem a bit bizarre,
It seems odd that no one wants to know who did invent,
The world’s ever first, the one and only premier car accident
