I need help translating a sentence!

Posted by Tal April 12, 2009 in the Group General Discussion.

Hi folks! If one of our more advanced poddies has a moment I would be so grateful if you could help me to translate the following sentence into Chinese. (A Chinese colleague clearly credits me with more ability than I have!)

"When the motorcar become more than an oddity, other types of accommodations developed in the United States."

This was my first attempt, which I know is not perfect: 汽车还没有珍闻的时候,在美国各种各样的住宿出来了,  which my (Chinese) wife has just told me she cannot understand at all! Aargh! Why am I trying to learn this language!?
