I took the comments from the quick edit post and tried to use them. Is this better? One of the reasons there is so much red on the front right, is that it was paked next to a red Austin Healey and the reflections are from it.

An excellent edit of one of my favourite cars of all time! I think it may have been better to leave the windscreen as in the original image, but perhaps just mask in a little bit of the new sky.

While I like what you attempted to do, I don't like the way you did it.
The edited version is sloppy and it's clearly visible you photoshopped it, especially the windshield and the sides of the car look fake.
You also have quite some chromatic aberration in the edited version.

I am still learning so appreciate all feedback. Not sure what chromatic aberrations are, but I would be grateful if you could find time to try and edit and show me the difference.

As said by Meaty, the windscreen might be better left as it was .. which is easy to do.

Good effort. A less extreme focal length would have made the tires look more natural.

chromatic aberration

See the green at the edge of the tires & on the shadow?

I like the idea, too - I think what you have is very workable into a creat composite. My critique is that the transition from earth to sky is not level (at different heights on left and right), and needs something to make it look more natural. Try taking a photo of a background from a similar angle so you can get some earthly features to carry the image from asphalt to sky.
