I remember the first time I saw one of these in the 60's ....it was a car you just could not ignore .....

Nicely done.  Not every textured overlay would work without detracting from the cars beautiful finish but this one works for me.

Thanks John ....    The background was  rubbiish so I did a motion blur on a layer and  a vintage overlay at  just 25% opacity. Oh and I  removed the sign on the windscreen ....

For those who are interested .... here is the original ...

What a piece of kit, eh? If I were to slide into driver's seat, I'd need a small winch to get me out again!

A very nice bit of PP work there, suits the subject really nicely.

Did you buy it?

When I was about 19 I was going out with a girl and our social evenings were spent in our local pub. The landlord said why don't you take her out and I told him she wouldn't ride pillion on my Bonneville. He chucked the keys to his E Type at me and said bugger off somewhere! So we did, and that was the one and only time I ever drove one😎

What a great story Denis...  the question is ... was it the girl or was it the car that sent you pulse racing .....?😉

An impressive piece of editing there!

I think I had the "Dinky toy" version... many years ago.

Thanks Gareth.... As you can see from the original Photo .... I had to edit and manipulate  the image,  in my opinion, to allow the  beauty    of the lines and shape of the  car to be shown in a way where there were no distractions ... like fire  extinguishers etc . Not everyone agrees with this and I respect that  view   .... however  maybe I should have posted this under manipulated  images on reflection.....🤔

The Bonneville came first, the girl a close second as she was a very petite, pretty, blue eyed blond, The E Type ? well lets say I was a bit too young to appreciate it. Too firm a drive, and felt to me to be tail heavy into bends.

I see in yesterday’s press they re  going to make the electric version here... to order ...and upgrade existing ETypes  for those rich enough  to have the cost of a detached house as spare change in their back pocket !!!!

Ooops. Just noticed that  I’d knocked off  a wing mirror during the post processing ...  grrrr
