Explaining "The Boston Car Wars (1978)"




The Boston Car Wars (1978) 
is the first fictional treatment 
of an effort to 
dispose entirely of 
the automobile. 
Adam Panflick 
gambler 
failed theologian and 
lover of the elusive Serena 
determines to 
combat the car 
in the most challenging 
arena of all,
the city of Boston 
The result is mayhem 
A feast of 
car crashes 
that would warm the
 heart of a Guy Grand 
Fiction it is 
and so it should remain 
Nonetheless 
in the years since 
its imagined happening 
there has been 
a growing realization 
that a world 
tied to big oil and
 the seductions of 
the automobile industry 
is not a safe place 
for future generations.
