In The Great Gatsby, what does Gatsby's car represent?
In The Great Gatsby, Gatsby's car represents him as a character. Like Gatsby, the car is showy and is meant to impress anyone who sees it. In addition to representing Gatsby's extreme wealth, the car reflects the "new money" aspect of Gatsby's style and personality. Ultimately, Gatsby's association with his car leads to his death, because George thinks Gatsby is the driver who hits Myrtle.
