What a dramatic picture. I wonder how he made the near-black sky? Polarization filter? Or a software manipulation?

The one below (from the day before) is nice too. Nothing that hasn't been done before, but if that was a necessary criterium, we'd never see anything.

As for the Hot Rod, the blur on the road is not in the direction of travel, so I suspect that was a still car with some reasonable good post processing.
I concur with Alex, the 2nd photograph is fake. The wheels of the car are crystal clear, which would have required a very short exposure, yet the blurred background says otherwise...
Dang, you guys are right. I didn't spot that.
