I thought the car featured in the photo was really funky and cool. It was dope learning the deeper significance of the piece and how it helped to emphasize a culture of keeping material objects like cars as keepsakes. It reminds me of how a lot of people will collect cars or have old-school/classic cars sitting in their garage to never be driven. They’re there for decoration and as the collectors’ very own art pieces.
