Default '72 Torino Ranchero

One of the last of Ford's big, heavy, gas-guzzling V8 beauties.

I realy like the "in your face" composition on this one! Did you replace the background on this...and if so, how did you create a refection on the floor?

Thanks, Jelpee. Yes, I masked the car from the background, copied and flipped it, put a tile floor under a copy of the background layer which I reduced the opacity on, etc.

Very nice...wide angle shot...makes the Ranchero look like it's going to gobble up whatever is in front of it...maybe a Prius ?

I drive a big Buick sedan and a clone of the Toyota Matrix (Vibe)....but when gas was going up outrageously a couple of years ago I did think of a Prius.

I need the Buick as I have difficulty fitting (6'3"+, 235 lbs) into many other cars...leg room, shoulder room, seat room.

I know what you mean. My son-in-law is 6'5" and 230. Had to get rid of his Pantera and his Chevrolet SSR for the same reason. Just took delivery on a 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T with a 400 HP turbocharger. Plenty of headroom and legroom. But, he had to wait 2 years after ordering it in 2008 as they discontinued production for 2009. And...it flat out FLIES!

When you're XLT it's not always easy to find things that fit....thanks heavens for big and tall shops...I imagine your SIL uses as I do.
A Dodge Challenger R/T would be a very nice car....I also like it's competition the new Camaro SS and the Mustang fastback V8.
