    There was a guy on reddit doing this line of work. He used hire car companies although I think he paid them and they'll probably want full rights to the image. Do you not using any motion blur at post?

    Some great photo work there.

    There's a VW car show at Stanford Hall this weekend. I doubt there will be much high end stuff there but there might be a few unusual cars.

    Or at the end of May there is the Crystal Palace Motorshow if you fancy a day in London. There is always a very wide range of cars there from 1930's stuff right up to supercars and a lot of them are doing the time trials that you may be able to photo.

    They are some lovely photos :)

    Whilst not super catrs I have access to various classics kicking about the place;

    Jensen Interceptor MKIII (currently in paint, hopefully done next few months)
    MGB GT V8 (currently in build, hopefully done by Aug)
    Range Rover CSK
    Couple of old Daimlers

    Not really what you're looking for but I'm only up in Derby if you're stuck for something to shoot :)

    Adam, I'd invite you to take photos of the Corvette if you don't drive into the back of me classic OcUK meet style :D

    Currently awaiting my Zr1 wheels being refurbed in shadow grey colour and it would be great to get it shot when they are on and I've lowered it slightly.

    My friend took this on Chelsea Bridge, London

    ahhh crafty! see with the scirocco I totally imagined someone leaning precariously out the boot and close to the road with a buddy holding on to them for their life xD and knew there would be some sneaky photoshoppery in there somewhere. looks ace though :D

    just had a look at the link as well.... my lord!!! hanging that camera so far off the car.... really gotta pick your location and make sure there's nothing coming xD risky business!!

    It was at 1am on a Saturday evening. I was in a convoy of 25 cars which parked up down the bridge. I also noticed the yellows too, but apparently at that time of the night they open up the bridge for parking? I dunno, we were there for 15 mins or so for photos and then off we went..

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you guys, was in Switzerland last week on a shoot so have been off grid.

    The Bentley is definitely of interest, what's the model and spec?

    Okay, promise not to stop just over the crest of a hill then yeah? ;) Also if I drive the Benz I'm not sure there will be much more of your Corvette left should it happen again. The crash protection on that is a massive washer bottle so you can clear the screen when you've vaporized the car in front ;)

    There's no photoshoppery (other than colour correction) on the Scirocco picture. I was hanging out of the boot of the car for that one...didn't have any one holding on either!

    Great stuff, drop me an email so I have your details :)

    Not at all, only an hour and a bit up the M6.

    You still in LA or back in the UK? I'm there next month so either works.

    If you ever find yourself down in Kent and it is of interest.

    I have an SLK55 AMG you can take a few of.

    LA has always just been in jest, I've always been in the UK.
