Chose the Sig 135 over the Zeiss. It'll do.

Absolutely, you have to be very careful with your angles, and how close you are to the subject. It's the combination of the FL, aperture, and minimum focus distance that does it. Shot higher up, on gravel, and in bright light the car would look absolutely scale-model.

Anyway, I was just fooling around with this shot, I didn't buy it for f2, I bought it for f5.6. If I want this look, I'll choose the 200/2 every time.

Sorry I'm just seeing this! I use a Nikon D810 and the Nikon 24-70 2.8 for 99% of my shots. I'll occasionally strobe using my Profoto B1. As far as processing goes, I just try to make things look natural and not forced. What I do for most images is separate the ground, body of the car, wheels, tires, background, and sky. I'll then edit section independently. Once everything is to my liking, I have some global adjustments I'll make such as curves, levels, color balance, etc.

took some shots the other day, I might get flamed for the fake photoshop lens flare, and i admit its pretty overplayed but any feedback would be appreciated

Most input I have received has been with one pole in the shot it is a distraction to the subject. That has been the words of wisdom I have gained from here.

On the second shot make sure to be aware of items behind cars. The telephone pole now looks like it is part of the car.
