  1. I know this topic is 10 years old, but I think I found the quote. And I believe he didn’t say cars, but gunpowder: ROBERT JORDAN “I've known the last scene of the last 'Wheel' book since before I started writing the first book, and that's unchanged. I thought 'The Wheel of Time' was going to be five or six books. I didn't think they'd be this long. I was doing this like a historical novel, but I had more things to explain, things not readily apparent. In a normal historical novel, you can simply let some things go by because the reader of historical fiction knows these, or has the concept of them. But this is not the medieval period, not a fantasy with knights in shining armor. If you want to imagine what the period is, imagine it as the late 17th century without gunpowder. I had to do more explaining about cultural details, and that meant things got bigger than I had intended.” Source: https://www.theoryland.com/intvmain.php?i=114&utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf
