On to the last chapter, chapter 8, with the final pre-submit edit.
Chapter 7 was a bit of a worry in terms of structure, but I realised the biggest problem was that I had not explained why the examples I provided of the shifting composition of automotive technologies were important in the rise of the imports and a shift away from street machining culture (rotaries, ‘hi tech’ engine swaps, actual import cars, “plug ‘n’ play” styles of modification, and lastly ‘retrotech’). I am very happy with the chapter now! The argument is very clear.
I am off to the gym for a break. My sister and her b/f arrive tonight! Very excited!
