There once was a time when there was some nice color combinations on cars.  It was all paint, but the gold trim on this car was aluminum.

Some cars had names and numbers!

        All cars had personalities back in those days… I grew up in a garage and I loved the smell of oils and gasoline… 🙂 Today all cars look the same.

      Thanks, Howard. I’m thinking of adding a page here dedicated to the cars. That will give me the chance to post the best of the series, including some earlier work from years ago.

      Thanks, ehpem. I think Topaz has a plug-in that, supposedly, accentuates the highlights with a star effect. I have it in a bundle I purchased years ago but I never used it. Hmmmm!

        I have that software and used it once or twice. It has quite a lot of control in terms of number of rays in a star, length of rays and so on. It should be possible to make something very subtle like your lens has gifted in this picture. I did not find it difficult to learn, but most of my subjects don’t need stars added or enhanced, so I have not played much with it.

    Ah, the bold 1950s. These images appeal to me particularly as i am busy with the restauration of a 1958 Lambretta Li (first series).
    Lovely details, well spotted an wonderfully captured! Thanks for this. Big like!

        Ah, it was my dad’s, so that’s why i’m putting a great effort into it. Most experts agree that it might have been Lambretta’s most, well, luxurious and abundant. In a Marilyn Monroe kind of curvaceous ways…

        Thanks! 🙂

      Thanks, Tom. I’ve only had 2 red cars in my lifetime, the Focus most recently and an old Vega years ago. The Vega can qualify as one of the worst cars ever built.
