There's no need to remove it since it's clearly understood by most people
to mean tools, custom items, maybe even tickets to an auto show.

Motor oil is sold at a car_parts shop because it is non-volatile and
therefore poses no fire or explosion risk. This is emphatically not the
case with gasoline and its relatives. Plus, a significant profit can accrue
from its sale.

So, while these observations are interesting, let's put them aside and
discuss the issue of shop=car_parts some other day.
