This teen has beautiful features yet he appears frail; he’s swimming in his collar. Was he recovering from an illness, or losing weight from sickness? If he were naturally this gaunt I think his collar would better fit him.

What a car! A classic Chevrolet Coupe, still the embodiment of the American dream car. I’m going a bit off topic since, obviously, here the star of the show is THE CAR. But what is a man without his toys? He’s leaning into it with pride. Some things will never change. :)
