A car-obsessed Driver and Mechanic aimlessly head East from L.A. in a souped-up 1955 Chevy, drag racing for money and thrills. Drifting across the Southwest, they keep being buzzed by a Pontiac GTO. They are joined by The Girl after she climbs into their car while the two are eating in a diner. Later at a gas station, the three meet "GTO" and challenge him to a cross-country race to Washington, D.C. for "pink slips," where the winner will get the loser's car. Along the way, however, they keep stopping to help each other, and winning seems far from their thoughts. The road is itself a place to live, is home, not just a way to move

In the 1950s, globetrotting New York construction engineer Walter Faber is drawn to Sabeth, a young German woman he meets on a ship traveling from New York to Paris; perhaps it's because of her resemblance to an old flame of his. Sabeth is drawn to him as well, even though she reads Albert Camus and Walter's never read a work of fiction. Sabeth tells Faber she's planning to hitchhike across Europe. He's worried for her, and offers to drive her to Rome. Along the way, his concern becomes romance, and romance leads to tragedy

Homo Faber ( visu )
2 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in German and held by 80 libraries worldwide
Ein älterer Ingenieur, der als gefühlsarmer Rationalist alles für berechen- und machbar hält, gerät gerade durch das Leugnen von Schicksal bei einer Liebesbeziehung in den Inzest mit seiner ihm nicht bekannten Tochter, dem Kind einer verlassenen Jugendgeliebten. Ein in der Interpretationsnähe zur Ödipus-Tragödie nach Max Frischs Roman gestaltetes Drama, das in mitunter überwältigenden Bildern, überwiegend aber allzu ehrfurchtsvoll-schwerfällig die Stationen einer falschen Selbstdefinition beschreibt. Vor allem der glaubhafte Hauptdarsteller macht den Prozeß der leidvoll auferlegten Selbsterkenntnis eines Menschen deutlich, der sich dem Glauben an ein höheres Walten entzieht. (www.filmevona-z.de)
Two-lane blacktop : screenplay by Rudolph Wurlitzer( Book )
9 editions published between 1970 and 2007 in English and held by 79 libraries worldwide
The Driver and The Mechanic roam the country in a tricked-out 1955 Chevy, drag racing for money and thrills. While stopped at a diner, The Girl climbs into their car and plants herself in the backseat. Drifting across the Southwest, they keep being buzzed by a snazzy 1970 Pontiac. GTO chats up a storm, bending the ears of the hitchhikers he regularly picks up off the side of the road. These three men, one woman, and two cars end up in a race to Washington D.C., yet they keep stopping to help each other, and winning seems far from their thoughts. The road is itself a place to live, is home, not just a way to move
