I've only been able to get a struct declaration to work if I fill it with float variables. Char doesn't work? Why?

I've tried using char variables in a struct declaration, but get the error "Incompatible pointer to integer conversion assigning to 'char' from 'char[2]'." So far, the only variables that work seem to be float. I haven't tried integers. When declaring struct variables, can you only popular it with numbers? Here's the code I attempted that wouldn't compile:

typedef struct { char make[3]; } car;

int main{ car favorites; favorites.make[0] = "Ford"; favorites.make[1] = "Toytoa";

printf("Favorite car makes: %c %c", favorite.make[0], favorite.make[1]); }

What am I doing wrong?
