Nice photo! I love these old Russian cars. Just one thing: you could have waited until that new car on the left would be gone. Together with the colors and the cars we would have stepped back in time.

I like this shot because it brings back memories! The Volga GAZ-21 was quite common in Norway in the 60s and 70s. A friend of mine owned one and let me drive it when I wanted. Those cars were indestructible - built like a tank!

yeah it's quite a nice "Genre" picture.
I'm not really fond of cars, but it has an overall "brezhnevian" groove (or is it a Gromyko mood?) brought with the slight green cast. We're really back in the early 70's looking at this pic.
Good pano cropping choice.

I don't agree with Gringofil -- in my opinion "that new car" can be the third step in Volga evolution :)

I like the idea behind the photo as well as the car, But the colors are very dull or blunt. I am not a pro at photography, just my $0.02
