Great work Andy, I like it a lot. I love the little details like was mentioned above, and the scattered leaves on the roof and the road 8-)
I think a background of sky or something would add.

I don't recall any other colour than black on the 99 Turbo. A lot of the 900 Turbos were black too though I do remember them in other hues.

Wouldn't be surprised if quite a few Saabs live hidden away in lock ups these days

Thanks Gil. I agree some form of back scene would be ideal.

Next up another factory race car so I've shot it just with a brick wall background to try and hint that it's fresh out of the workshop

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Nice shot Andy, though it seems these 'factory' Alpines were built in little more than a group of lock ups.

Yes, nobody was 'precious' about anything in those days.

At least the brickwork is a match

This is very true Ian.

You have to have a bit of an imagination on this one as I doubt there is a brick wall at the bottom of Pikes Peak

Gravel and a few pine trees would be perfect, Andy.

Very true Tom. Would help for sure

Now you all need to imagine this has just been rolled out of the Maserati factory back in 1929

Can you now sepia and vignette it? B&W looked convincing!
