I am searching for some great sources that will explain the magic behind getting great shots of cars and motorcycles in the studio and on-location.
I know that this covers a lot, as far as technical know-how, but I am willing to put in the time and effort to learn how.
Any info and leads will be appreciated greatly.

I'll be shooting hot rods, custom bikes, and even hearses this weekend. True, there will be models with the vehicles, but I might want to get some shots of just the rides as well (I know, I know, what the hell am I thinking?).

Here's my best (and only) car image so far:

havent shot them much, but hope this works:

1. excellent wax job.
2. wet ground around car to reflect the vehicle
3. turn on ALL lights blinkers, etc. if possible and shooting partial interior/exterior (as in car doors open) throw a floodlight or heavy-duty flashlight inside to light interior and use a yellow, gold or blue gel filter
4. shoot low and look for exciting backgrds that will accent the vehicle, and dramatic clouds
5. add people ONLY if they will stay in prespective with the vehicle, otherwise the pix will suffer
6. catch the car in the wet ground reflection

good luck and let's see a pix !!!!
