Photographer's Comments
Bought this a few months back solely for the purpose of taking photos. Lighting for this shot was from a single white LED from my mobile phone. I had initially wanted to convert this photo into black and white, and then add some digital noise to give it the classic look. However, during conversion to black and white, I found that I could get clean and clear white background. So I decided to retain the colour of the car, and to change the background to white. I thenk increase the saturation and contrast of the car to bring out its colour. Did some sharpening as well. I am quite happy with the final outcome from this shot. Comments on how to improve this photo, composition wise or post processing is highly appreciated.

The defined outlines to me gives it a rather cartoonish effect against the white background. Probably due to the fact that the light source is solely from your camera phone LED, the rest of the car seems light pink tinted somewhat. Or was that on purpose? You know you shud try to convert it into a classic-look photo as well just for the fun of it. :)
