Question - 681

Nothing special about the car but where (just after a rain) is this shot taken?

PS: I am traveling for the July 4 long weekend. I won't have any updates till after America is 235 years old.

PPS: This reminds me of a very bad cryptic clue I saw once - "235? (5)". Any guesses?

Answer: Utah's Bonneville salt flats - the terrain here is perfectly suited for attempting land speed records. Mekie, Jamie, Arpit, Siddarth Pai and Krithi got it. Well done. The answer to the cryptic clue is usage.
