This 1948 Buick Sedanette cruises the dark streets of Gotham like a femme on the prowl. Behind the wheel private detective Guy McGraw eases back the seat just minutes after bulldogging the four perps of an Armoured Car Robbery.

The name’s Flyrod. American car culture is my thing. If it rolls, roars, or rumbles I’m into it. Statistics and facts aren’t my gig. My mission is to track down and capture the infamous rides that make up pop culture, and to tell their stories.

    Like all my car images this one started with a shot from a car show on a parking lot. It was shot in full sun with no special lighting. The background is from Las Vegas and is dramatized by a Linier Blur and Burning. A Linier Blur was also added to the reflection in the car doors and the street to simulate movement. A Surface Blur was added to soften the car surface. Lens Flare and Gausian Blur turn on the headlights. The roof of the car was chopped and the front end was stretched in Photoshop. It’s two parts real and ten parts fiction. Shot with Canon 5D Mark 2.
