Speeding along the highway of mania and delusion, Alan Sincic's My New Car is a thrilling and entirely original glimpse into the mind of a man in love with his car.
"It is hard for people to recognize me when I am not at the wheel of my brand new car. When I go for a walk I have to jangle the keys in my pocket, I have to signal for a turn with the blink of my eye, I have to splash myself with a cologne that makes me smell like a brand new car. At work at my desk I close my eyes, turn the fan toward me, pretend I am rushing rushing down the highway in my brand new car because I am a driven man, I cannot be stopped, my wife, I had to leave her but at least I have got my brand new car, I could not handle the both of them it was just too much but now I am free."
