Here is a 1966 dodge Coronet 500 from a car show I attended this weekend.

This car was like stepping back in time. It was beautifully preserved. C&C is always welcome

Wow! Talk about "stepping back in time." Excepting color, owned this exact model, 4 on the floor, 383 with 325 HP. For the era, it was a screamer!

Good shots. That looks like Midnight Blue paint, which wasn't used very much, but looks great on one of the guy's '66 Charger.

The 383 was underrated IMO. I bought a '69 Cuda "way back when" 'cause I saw the prototype '70 in a car shoot for Chrysler & thought the '69 had more character. All that room in back was great for carrying parts & the 383 made it a great tow car, too. It was the fastback "S" & I suspect that I was still in heat from when I saw a Maserati 450 that was the same body style.
It rusted out from under me at 187,000 miles, but I sure wish I'd kept it now! It was listed at 3,050 pounds & would do an honest 141mph right out of the showroom!

My brother is building a 1965 Coronet drag car with a 426 Hemi.. Can't wait to see it run..

I hope you've been taking build shots so you can make a book for him?

How about smooth out the road in the bumper & throw away the background? ;)
Need to remove a background from something?

I like the processed one better. I'd be curious to see a version with the suggestions PhotosGuy said.
