A worn out and rusted Kaiser-Frazer Manhattan sedan. Once a stylish car, now merely roadside junk.

A new high score for me, and I never expected a top 10. I'm stoked! Thanks for all the great feedback. I'll have a hard time repeating this.

This is really sweet, and the side light makes it just excellent. I have an old "Motors Manual" that has all the specs for this car in it.

cars are not really my thing, but this was so beautifully framed and seductively lit, it got my attention and a high score.

Congrats. Well done: that curve of the nose is sumptuous and you have brought out the beauty in the rust colours.

Congratulations on your good score!
Actually I was cut off when writing a comment just before voting time was over - I think it is one of the nicest photos in this challenge and it is great to see it again among the first 10!!!

I like the use of light and shadows in this
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like it. It has a personality, a mood, a story to tell. An 8 in my book. The highest mark I've given.

Nice textures and colors.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice find! The reflections show a person and blue sky, while the background is pure black ... the discrpancy is a bit distracting from the car itself.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Still spectacular, even rusted out...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Lovely rusted car, the shape and textures and colours are a delight. The composition doesn't quite work for me because of the way the black bumper knobby thing (don't know what it's called) on the lower left is touching/slightly cropped by the edge of the frame but it's a minor thing.

Nice image with the old paint and newer looking headlight glass, or if not new then just not as whethered as the medal. good capture.

Great old heap!!!! At least you "got it." About 90% DNMC in my opinion.
