5) 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda
This was a ‘driveway’ shot, when meant that whilst there arent many people crowding round the car, there were plenty of ‘house’ reflections off the immaculate black paint. The low angle shot helped with that – so I applied a little desaturation around the car as well as a bit of fade to white.

3) 1969 Z28 Chevy Camaro
2) 1966 Shelby Cobra 427
The story of the Cobra begins as early as 1959 when Carol Shelby raced for Aston Martin, winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Along the way he probably took notice of a well performing AC Ace that would become a foundation for his next venture.
After quitting racing, he return to America to build his own sportscar, turning to Charles Hurlock of AC Cars to supply a chassis and body that was suitable for the new 260 cubic inch Ford V8. After considerable racing success, Ford provided the even larger 427 FE engine. By 1965, chief engineer Ken Miles wanted to fit thengine to win SCCA’s A Production Class and stay ahead of the Corvette Grand Sport.
