Dear helpful person,
I have been trying to download package car from the CRAN website using the
install.packages command from within R. I have successfully used this
command to install other packages but can't make it work for car. 
When I try I get the following messages: 
trying URL `http://cran.uk.r-project.org//bin/windows/contrib/PACKAGES'
Content type `text/plain' length 5677 bytes
opened URL
downloaded 5677 bytes

Warning messages: 
1: argument `lib' is missing: using F:/USERS/Joslin2001/R/rw1031/library
in: install.packages(car) 
2: No package "-3.2" on CRAN. in: download.packages(pkgs, destdir = tmpd,
I have tried a couple of mirror sites but to no avail.
If you could give me any advice on how to install this package I would be
most grateful.
Thank you for your help,
