American Dreams: Stories of Millennial Car Culture
by Phillips, Steven, M.A., The George Washington University, 2017, 94; 10623838
Abstract (Summary)

American Dreams: Stories of Millennial Car Culture is a multimedia project that uses photos, videos, and an essay to profile two young men—German Coello and Corey McKenzie—involved in two very different types of car culture: stanced Hondas and Volvo rally cars, respectively. The project explores the automotive subculture and racing can have a profound impact on young people in terms of finding personal identity, and building positive and supportive relationships and communities. American Dreams relates stories beyond cars about finding your place in a new country after immigration and finding joy in Appalachian Maryland.
