Here in Aus there has been a very interesting series by the ABC called "Wide Open Road". It tells the story of cars in Australia, from teh very first, to crossing Australia, Holden and Ford (of course), garages etc. Very interesting and very well put together. There are pieces with everyday folk talking about their first car, parents car, what it meant having the freedom etc.
One quote sticks with me and will do for ever. There is an older lady sat in her 1960's car talking to the camera in a segment about drink driving and changes in attidude. She responds in a typically Aussie twang.....
..."of course we had to drive, we were to pi$$ed to walk"
