Overall a good series. I don't like the vignetting in shot 1, although I really like the rest of the processing. The 2nd to last shot doesn't really work for me. Otherwise, a really great series of shots. Really like the processing and the angles you've used.

Pros: Classic angle, good light angle, nice ground texture and muscular background.
Cons: bit too much blown out chrome highlights for my taste.

I think the reflection of the ground on the car's body below the beltline symbolically ties the car and the road together while also looking good.

My mind's eye wants to see this again with different post processing (PP). These suggestions are to make the car pop from the background. Use the existing PP (without the fake lens flare if you can) but apply only to car and ground. This will keep the muted colors seen in the background of the similar #5. Depending on how that looked I'd try adding a little focus blur or Gaussian blur to the background or maybe just darkening it a bit.
