The many conflicts between charcacters in this story could happen during any time period. Gatsby doesnt have to be a billionaire 0r anything. Anyone could cheat on anyone, anyone can get hit by a car at any time. To say this couldnt happen in another time is unreasonable. Daily activites could still lead to these conflicts even if u arent the richest or have the biggest more extravagant parties. If you have affairs, carelessly love someone putting their good above you, and kill people you will have consequences. The exact parts of the story might not be the same but the general theme and concept of the book could always work throughout history even without cars and guns.
