Very rare 1936 Cord 810 Cabriolet fully restored. This model was a favorite of Hollywood stars and sports figures of it's time including Amelia Earhart, Johnny Weissmuller,Tom Mix, Bing Crosby, Groucho Marx, Sonja Henje. and Al Jolsson.

It was amazingly advanced for it's time. It was America's first front wheel drive vehicle, came with retracting front headlights, and some 196 of them sported Super Charged engines.

The timeless styling and art deco design features make this one of my favorites.

Best part of this car, is it is owned by the grandson of the owner/founder of the Cord Motor Company whom we ran into at a car show this summer. We spent several hours with him telling us about his grandfather and the development of the car's design and manufacture - a rare treat.

PS, new to me camera - love it!

What a beauty. Typically I am most drawn to the lovely reflection on the front hub cap.

It's a pity the front right of the car is in shade. A couple of metres back and it's be evenly lit and you'd have a background that was less distracting. Or moved forward into the shade for softer lighting and make the most of the reflections in that paintwork.
This is not to take anything away from your image. I add this as much as an observation and to suggest alternatives, for any other members reading this.
A nice story to go with it, and it's a super restoration. I'm sure the owner would be pleased with a print Smile

The thumbnail caught my eye.
As has already been said, it's a shame half of it's in the shade but perhaps that was unavoidable.
The sun's obviously shining, so I don't understand why you used f/4.0. You could have used a much smaller aperture and a longer exposure to get a similar result but you would have got much greater depth of field. As it is, it's not particularly sharp.
Hope this helps.

Bren.
