Car Wrecks From The 1920 s And 1930 s BlogCar Wrecks From the 1920′s and 1930′s It had some outstanding photos of old car wrecks in it. Sure it was using plane engines, but it does show that America was deeply craving high speeds. Wicked cheers, very use full information. I recall even in the 60s, wrecks were horrendous, with fatals every weekend.
At the end of a Gatsby party in Chapter 3, there is a terrible car wreck. We can infer that the man who was driving was intoxicated at this time.
The car crash was symbolic because it sort of represented the recklessness of the roaring twenties. The wheel was separated from the car, preventing the driver from driving in reverse to get the car out of the ditch. Intoxicated people should be nowhere near the steering wheel of a car. The crash occurs at the end of Gatsby’s party. The man was intoxicated, and he was angry. The driver of the car crashed was intoxicated and utterly confused.
The drivers behavior was also very wildly.
