Vintage Car
Contest Directions: This Saturday we continue our freaking experiment with provided source images. Many cars made in the 50s, 60s, and 70s are still in excellent condition these days when taken care of properly by the collectors. Back in the old days, cars were made to last 20 and more years. These days, people are so used to having new car models every 3-4 years, that most recent cars are made from cheaper materials meant to last 10 years max - after that you will need to change the engine and most parts to keep it going. At certain point it will be more expensive to "rebuild" this old car than to buy a new one. Besides, who wants to drive the same car model for 10 years? Thus the new motto for the auto-makers - cheaper-built cars meant to look good but not to last. The prices for these new cars are not so low though, but they say it's only due to inflation. Right.
Photoshop this vintage car photo any way you wish. It's a Citroen 2CV "Deux Chevaux" (thanks, MsgtBob!). Stock photo credit: i k o
