The lens flare wasn't too bad as a good part of the image is white or black. Just lasso the flare and decrease saturation a bit. It would have been a lot more difficult if the car had been blue or red. For the flare in the kidney grille, I just selected the grille on the viewer's right and made it a layer, then used transform to flip it horizontally. Then I used the move tool to slide into place over the other grill. To remove the guy on the left, I just erased the part of him that had a white background. Then I used the selection tool to select the center vehicle, the shadow, and everything to the right and made them into their own layer. Then I just moved that layer left a bit to cover up the lower part of the guy on the left. The sky was a simple gradient overlay.
