I have seen these cars (as there are about 4 of them) sitting in this guys front yard in the middle of the city for as long as I can remember. I've always wanted to take a photo of some of these cars and I have finally had a chance. I didn't get the lighting that I wanted as it was about 3000 degrees outside, humid and not a cloud in the sky but what can you do.

I took the photo the way you see it without cropping however the reason it's cut on the left side is that there were other cars behind and I just though it was to distracting having them there. I'm sure I'll get at least one comment about that but I think this works better for me.

I appreciate the nice greenery and that the car is becoming part of it, but more car and less tree would perhaps have been better for me, but that's just me:)

You don't need that much tree in the picture takes away from the main subject. Your sky is also washed out which is easy to do with this much contrast. Being closer to the car would have taken car of that.

I've seen several of old cars/trucks stashed away in the bushes. Where I live that's just unthinkable. I like your composition. I'll rate it a 7.

Oh this would have been so much better in sepia. Nice placement of the auto in the shot.

A great shot of a sometimes forgotten era in cars.
