Kustom Kar Kommandos

Pygmalion and his machine mistress. To the soundtrack of „Dream Lover“ a young man strokes his customized car with a powder puff.
„Kustom Kar Kommandos“ was originally to be an eight-part, 30-minute film which Anger describes as „an oneiric vision of a conptemporary American (and specifically Californian) teenage phenomenon, the world of hot-rod and customized cars.“ Anger made the episode presently shown as „Kustom Kar Kommandos“ to raise funds to finish the film, but was unable to do so and the project was abandoned.
