Close-ups/Macros of Classic Cars-Read the Rules

Challenge #1 in the Close Up and Macro series. Hosted by shuttrrbug.
Challenge has finished
Show me a meaningful and aesthetically pleasing detail photograph (inside or out) of a classic car built no later than 60's. I am not looking for an "easy identifier" such as an emblem shot, or a shot that points to the make, the model of a car, etc. Use texture, color, and composition to show interesting work. I don't care what post processing technique you use, and do feel free to share it with other. Put some effort into creating an interesting photo. No snapshots. Somebody once said: "If you think you're close, you're not close enough!" Good luck!
