    New cars certainly do have a distinctive smell, and this is such a pretty car interior. In my faves.

    Great car shot! Did you buy a can of "New Car Smell" to spray inside? I've seen it in stores, but never tried it. Would have been nice to have an HDR version of this to avoid the blown out area on the dash. Still in my favs. Brings back memories of my Dad's 1957 Buick Limited.

    Beautiful job of restoration. If I'm not mistaken, the "new car" smell can now be replicated with a spray can. I like the composition, showing some of the other vintage autos. Great detail.

    Amazing how much more room those old cars had. Good memories of fresh vinyl.

    Nice shot of a car that looks a bit too old to have much 'new car smell."

    a fun response.
i'd have liked to drop the highlights if possible and have a bit more background blur, but I guess those were tricky lighting conditions

    Don't get me started! I know what you mean - but this doesn't do it for me.

    Old cars have a very distinct smell, and I can smell it right now.

    Almost made me feel carsick just looking at it. A lovely interior and cleverly composed photograph to express the smell.
