Last weekend I had some free time and I used that time to visit a couple of small car shows in the area. Both car shows were very small and most of the cars were in different stages of the restoration process. So I mostly went to see the cars and dream about the old Chevelle I sold years ago and what it could have been if I had kept it.
High Performance World Car Show
As I mentioned before, I visited a couple of car shows last weekend. I took about a hundred pictures from both shows and I just finished processing them earlier today. So today, I want to share a few pictures of one of my favorite cars from the High Performance World Car Show. In the next few weeks I will share a few more pictures from the show.
All the images have been process with Adobe Lightroom 3 and Adobe Photoshop CS4. When I have some time, I will start the post processing of the images.
This car is a 1930s custom hot rod and its one of my favorite cars at the show. It has a mix of retro styling with a few modern touches.
I took the above picture facing the sun on purpose. I wanted to see what kind of effect I would get. After planning with the shadows and highlights, I think it came out pretty will and I like the sun rays. Only thing I need to do is clone out the lens flare that is on the wheel.
As you can see the car has a large engine with a roots style super charger and blower on top. With this kind of power and the light weight of the car, this car not only looks fast but it is fast!
When these cars were first made, they were tiny and came with almost no options. But this one has had everything removed and custom hot rod gear and the custom grenade gear shift knob was added.
