At Philament I have a piece titled The XXX Test in the XXX theme issue and it is on the failure of the Pontiac GTO (aka Holden Monaro) in the US. I compare the new GTO to the old GTO through some of Rob Cohen’s films and motorsport.
Some of the thinking in The Getaway article will bein my second chapter in the “Doing Nothing” section where I talk about the potentialisation of the street. While most of The XXX Test will appear in my fifth chapter “The Rise of the Imports”. Both articles in different ways raise my idea of an automotive cultural economy.
I need to check out the rest of the issues. Mel Gregg’s comments on Donnie Darko are good.
