Does anybody know where I can find a picture of a car driving away at night, or parked by the side of a not too desolate country road? Ideally it needs to be in landscape view, ideally with a width of at least 1680 pixels and with the car quite a bit off to one side or the other (the left side if there are words on a sign in the picture). The lighting should be moody, with a dark enough background for white text.  I need this to support the lyrics of a song about a breakup. A fifties or sixties American car would really be ideal, but not essential.

I spent an hour googling it and searching for it at fotolia.com and couldn't find anything close, so you'll be my hero if you can't find it. :-)

Thanks,
John

HI edster9999, thanks. Their selection is a little better than fotolia but nothing that looks like what I have in my mind. I thought this would be easy, but I guess not. I'll keep looking. Let me leave the question open for a while and see what else might come in.

ANother alternative would be to get in you car (with an extra person) and go find a quiet road. get them to drive off while you snap the picture.

A good tip here would be to stop the car as taking a picture of a moving car is harder than a stopped car.  
Remember to let go of the brakes for a few seconds so you do not have the brake lights on.  
Remember... saftey... Don't do this anywhere near a corner where people will not see you a long way off.
...and finally... be nice to your friend or they may not come back for you :)

Thanks everybody. Michael, I really appreciate these two of yours because the cars are alone on the road and will probably use one of them.
