In the film The 25th Hour, Edward Norton’s character lives in Manhattan. He also drives a 1970 Dodge Coronet Super Bee. It’s one of my favorite examples of a car existing in a place where you don’t expect. In fact, the idea of muscle cars being driven in spaces others would never dare do so is a personal idea that I love. Were I ever to move back to Boston, for example, I’d bring a muscle car with me to drive in and around the city. It makes no sense. It’s a terrible tool for the task. And I love the imagery of a gurgling, old, beast of machine idling as the masses stroll past heading towards offices in the sky.
The out-of-place muscle car is just one example of a car being somewhere it should not. What are some others?
