This is my first attempt at photo restoration.
The first thing I did was try to get rid of the tape marks with cloning.
I left the man and tires for last.
I then used the wall tutorial here, to redo all sections of the walls. I also used the same technique for the road, only after adding noise, I used a motion blur along the same direction as the road. I used the burn tool for all shadows, including the ones on the walls, around the leaning man, and under the car.
I worked on the man to the left next. I did a Google image search using "leaning man" and came up with several images. I ended up with 3 bodies to use, and the one I used looked most realistic. It only needed to be flipped and resized. I touched up the face with airbrush.
The tires and wheels were the hardest part for me. I ultimately ended up airbrushing most of the damaged parts, using eyedropper many times to get new colors to use. Once I got the front driver's side tire done, I copied it, resized it, and pasted it over the damaged passenger side tire.
For the car, I used smudge tool to smoothen out the noise. I found it gave the car a shiny appearance. I did not touch the driver or the seat he's sitting in.
For finishing touches, I used eyedropper to get a sample color from the original. I used a hue/saturation adjustment layer, and selected colorize, to help the photo retain the original color tones.

Excellent work. Your novel approach to the leaning man and your tire changing method worked out very well. Also like your wall treatment, tones and highlights.

I'm sorry, but your leaning man looks like he was originally leaning on a bar. It is hard to lean against a blank wall and not be vertical. I think you need to put the wall opening back in so he has something to lean against. I really like the rest of the picture and think you did a great job with it.
