Breaking Down in America


JM, Breaking Down in America, Atwater, 12.04.08

Not just Nebraska plates...thirty-day Nebraska plates.

From Breaking Down in America:
I’ve always wondered about those cars you see advertised for only a few hundred bucks. So I bought one. Now I’m gonna drive that bitch as hard as I can across the country. If (when?) it breaks I’ll just buy another beater and move on. This is a road trip that for once comes without the fear of breaking down. Instead there’s the expectation that something will go wrong. Constantly. I guess you could call it a metaphor for life. Breaking Down in America is the unfolding story of this road trip and the cars, the people and the places involved.
