    “I think the key image of the 20th century is the man in the motor car. It sums up everything: the elements of speed, drama, aggression, the junction of advertising and consumer goods with the technological landscape, the sense of violence and desire, power and energy, the shared experience of moving together through an elaborately signalled landscape.” J.G. Ballard, speaking in Crash! (1971), a BBC television film directed by Harley Cokliss
