I'm still a beginner at photographing cars, so criticism is welcome.

nice image...my suggestion is to clone the pole on the right...its distracting from an otherwise amazing image...

Thanks for the welcome guys, I didn't really focus on the pole much until now. I'll definitely think about cloning it, thanks.

Hey RKW3, fancy meeting you here! I like the photo looks like an old time ad.

Hey. I was just disappointed that I wasn't getting many replies on this picture in TPF, but I personally thought this was a cool capture.

Now that I'm here I may be sticking around though!

Too many "sins" in one shot for me? It's not looking sharp, even in the large version. Two light poles are "growing out of the car", which we can't always help, It's B&W & in direct sunlight.
I suppose what counts most is that you like it, but if you want to improve, then read this a few times:
