ehh, it's fine here.
Nikon > Canon.
You definitely have the right ideas in shooting, the colors on good, focus is on point. Maybe just worry about framing your subject more so that the photo draws the viewers eye. Watch for over/under exposing. Etc.
i shoot with a d80 as well...yah once u get things down, with knowing ur settings...you'll be impressed in what this cam can do, i started off with a d40x for 2 years, then just recently upgraded to the now d80, looking to either upgrade in the near future to a d90/d300...i cant narrow down my decision yet, or can afford either of the 2 yet..so im good at the moment with my d80

EMU I have the D90 and a good friend with a D300.. they both share the same image sensor, so the quality of pictures is ridiculously close.. The d300 has a better burst rate though, and slightly more megapixels I believe? But it does not have movie mode I believe..
So unless your gonna jump all the way to the D3/d700 and up, just save money and get the D90, then you'll have spare cash to get extra lenses and what not. :)

Be sure to read up on the Rule of Thirds. It's kind of a good basic concept to know if your getting into photography.
here's a link.
and like glasswars said, watch your framing. The third and fourth pictures are cutting bits of the car off at bad spots.

maybe get a polarizer too.
i should follow my own advice on that one though :D

Keep shooting, find pictures that you like and see what it is you like about them.
9 out of 10 times it is the composition. Once you learn what looks good in a picture, you are on your way. As you continue shooting and familiarize yourself with your settings, your shots will get sharper and more in focus.
Keep after it. oh and nikon>canon.

Find a book called "Understanding Exposure", by Bryan Peterson.
This is recommended reading for anybody who picks up an SLR. You will learn a lot and your skies will stop being white and you will be able to get more details out of the cars you are shooting.
