Why 1977?
The car was made in 1977, so I felt it was unfair to list it as a year before that.

Problems encountered: the car was parked in the garage, so I had to crop out a bit of that which showed. Also, I didnt realize this until I looked at the pics on the computer, but the registration tag which says '05 is on the front of the windshield, so I had to crop that out too. :(
I would have reshot, but I was already 3 hours away from where I took the pic. Oh well.

An image with flair, charm and above all a wonderful composition that appears to be moving right past the viewer. A very nice sensation. Hey, makes the voter want to go for a ride. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

I think this tighter crop actually may have been better for you better in the challenge. Nice pic.

Looks perfect to me. After voting on all the entries I thought yours had everything. Great photo in general and most important it nails the subject of the challenge. Take away the title and you still know what era you're conveying. That's something you can't say for many of the photos ranked ahead of yours. Good job.

This is great. Where did you find the outfit for the model? lol The glasses really rock. The background and aft part of the car is a little washed out, but it works. 9

I really like the the look of this picture. The blown sky actually works in this setting I think, however I just wish that the highlights inthe rear of the car were still there.

I like this picture and it very authentic looking for the time stated in your title. I like the angle at which this was shot and the overexposed look of the background. 9

Nice. I like the high key look. Works well for the pic IMO.

I like this alot. The reflection and the angle is great. Good use of light. Nice shot.

This is truly great...totally looks like it was ripped from the 1977 brochure for the car...well..except for that bit of dirt on the bottom...a super fine entry.

This is pretty cool. The reflection in the car door is annoying tho.

very good shot. i really like the angle and the blown out highlights.

This looks like it belongs in a magazine. My one complaint is the reflection in the car - it's distracting to me. Otherwise, great job! 8

Contrast and exposure/light works magically here. Who cares about the blown highligjts it's all about the subject hanging out of the window. Good job.

Really like the way you photographed this. 8

I got married that year! Very nice shot excellent placement for the model. I even had a pair of those glasses to go with my platform shoes.

Cool shades. When do Starsky and Hutch come around the corner. I wish the reflection on the car wasn't so bright.
