That Chieftain hood emblem was quite something . . from the days of a straight eight, I guess ?

I like the orientation of the frame and the long streak of red, is that seriously a light hidden in there?

@Curly: No. Just the sunlight.

This picture is absolutely stunning. The reflections, the bokeh, the colors, the precision, the composition, and this Indian reference by Pontiac is so astonishing....I'd love to know more about that. On this commemorative day for the world, it's very interesting to also make us think to what happened when the WASP came on the Indian ground a long time ago to create their first world's power.

Lovely balance of graphic elements. The reflections and the out of focus leaves. And at first that little burst of red looks a bit like a bird, and then you have to take a longer look.
