OK, as a relatively new member, this is my first RP contest entry. It was a lot of work (especially since I've never done a vehicle before) and a lot of fun -- learned bunches. I hope I didn't break the rules? The instructions said remove the license plate, which I did, but then I replaced it with my own personal plate. Every car ad I see does have plates! Also, put it on a white background, which I did, but then I faded it as a rolled background. Apologies if I messed up. Hopefully I'll know better next time.

Okay - I didn't listen to the directions. I figured there would be quite a few great entries from which to choose - so I submit this.
