If you're ever in Reno, don't miss the National Car Museum (formerly Harrah's). There are hundreds of meticulously restored vehicles dating back to the 1890's.

Here, I masked out the car and desaturated the background and added a blur effect.

Nice shot Walter. What camera and lens did you use?

I've never seen a Tucker before, just pictures, but I do like the WA downward perspective you gave the Tucker.

It was taken with a Canon 5D and my 16-35 2.8L lens. The unique feature of the Tucker was the center headlight, which turned as the steering wheel was turned.

Walter,

Thanks for the camera info. I had forgotten about the Tucker light being synched to the steering. I believe Citroen had this feature, but after Tucker's demise.

Keep posting your auto pictures, I enjoy them.

Beautiful shot! Nice use of the mask Walter. It's a beautiful car. I love the movie about Preston Tucker. He was ahead of his time. There was a lot more to the car than the headlight. I remember seeing ads recently for one of the luxury car makers utilizing headlights that move with the turn.
