Summary
Of all the inventions that have transformed our way of life in the past 100 years, few have done so as profoundly as the automobile. More than just a means of transport, the car has come to dominate our lives. In Australia there{u2019}s a car for nearly every man, woman and child. No one, it seems, is immune from its pleasures and dangers, and everyone has an auto story to tell. Auto Stories is a four-part character-driven series that explores the passions and the problems of our car-obsessed culture{u2014}the responsibility, dependency, pride, vanity, obsession, love and pain. Affairs Of The Heart looks at the car as status symbol, soul mate and would-be home wrecker, while Til Death Do Us Part reveals the hard facts of life and death in the fast lane. A Little Inconvenience shows how a minor accident can often ruin more than your day and in Wrong Way Go Back road crews and traffic controllers confront the chaos on our roads and environmentalists take on engineers in an attempt to ease our traffic nightmares. Funny, fascinating and sometimes challenging, Auto Stories lifts the bonnet on Australians{u2019} unique and often curious relationship with the car
