POTN G-series Speed Challenge # 675: Our Cars

Description of this week topic:

Sometimes a car can be an extension of the owner, it can match our own personality; maybe that is why numerous people have more than one. It can be simple, practical, big, little, utilitarian, luxurious, modern, vintage, or even ostentatious. I am pretty sure we all have one. So, on your next drive, take your camera and take a shot of your own car. The car does not need to be the main focus, but your car must be in the shot!

Remember, if you post a photo, you may be the winner. Be prepared to host and judge a new challenge.

To submit, click the button labeled 'POST TO THREAD' and put your Photo Title in the first line of the post, above your photo.

Nope. Probably everyone but me does, though. Congratulations to all three winners.

I guess all those with Ferraris, Teslas and Rolls didn't want to appear boastful, those with 30 yr. old rust-buckets were too ashamed, and those of us whose cars are covered in muck most of winter didn't want to show them either. So my shot taken through a dirty windshield still won and now I'm stuck with the next challenge - thanks, Cory!;-)a

EDIT: New challenge now up - lots of entries, please!
