The community that surrounds cars is alive and well. Since the early Ford Model A, there has been a culture that involves loving, racing, building, and sharing of cars. Many car subcultures have also been born throughout the years. NASCAR is an excellent example of a subculture. Bootleggers would strive to build faster and better cars. To figure out who had the best car, they would build oval racetracks out of dirt in fields. This eventually became sanctioned events, and then expanded into what we know as NASCAR. Other official events like these have stemmed from other subcultures. Today, car meets are a very popular activity. Many car lovers will meet at a parking lot to show off their cars to others. From this came official car meets with small competitions within them. Prizes and trophies will be offered to the most liked car, best built, and many more categories. Most of the time, the winners will be chosen through voting. Car culture, as far as I know, has always been about community. Every event I have attended, every race I have been to, the community has always been welcoming and about togetherness. There are also unspoken standards of how one should act within the community. If, for example, one person is a being unruly at a car meet, or especially doing something that could get the meet shut down, everyone comes together to either have that person stop what they are doing, or get them to leave. It is amazing how everyone involved comes together, and also knows the unspoken rules.
