    you wonder how somethin like this ended up here. saw it and took a few photos. messed with the colors on that one to make an old effect. i liked it. tell me what you all think, the good the bad and the ugly.

    i like the second one better....on this i think a picture from the trunk area looking in or perhaps the windshield looking in would look good...maybe not though hmmm

    thanks for the comment. tried a few trunk shots, and wasnt happy with them. the car was not together enough (too many parts missing) and it was too confusing looking at it to tell what is what, ya know.

    yeah i could see that....sometimes these things work out sometimes they dont...just out of curiousity could u find some space between the grill to where u can still get the car in the background like through the grill that might look pretty cool....would be tricky though

    I actually like the lines of the first pic better. The grill of the car and the split dashboard really illustrate a design of a past era.

    Nice shots! Thanks for sharing.

    I really like the first one. Too much toning in the second one...IMHO.

    Neat car though. It's in surprisingly good shape...Not really rusted out all that much.

    I like #1 the best, but maybe add a little more contrast. It seems a little bright to me. Nice shots though.:mrgreen:

    Back when that car was junked, farmers would gut what they thought was worth anything and leave the rest in the back yard out of sight. If thats on your property you might get some good money for some of the parts, I have seen shows on TV that are looking for that sort of thing.

    I really like the second one, it gives it a nice old timy feel.

    thanks, ill give it a whirl


    you know you're probably right. i dont see why they just wouldnt sell it for scrap metal but im glad they didn't cause i wouldnt have a picture then. it wasnt on my land, i was just cruisin around the countryside one day and happened to spot it.

    thanks yeah thats the look i was goin for in the second. thanks for commenting
