"KUSTOM KAR KOMMANDOS was originally to be an eight-part, 30-minute film which Anger describes as 'an oneiric vision of a contemporary 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." - Marilyn Singer, The American Federation of Arts
