subtle fix

on a related note, i was going to my brothers today and saw an old lady in a huge buick...she literally didnt have anything but her hair higher than the steering wheel.

this should be totally illegal.

The back of the car just doesn't look right to me. Also, that car would have had to of been going FAST.

Yea, that's the first thing I said. I don't understand though why they would do a news article about this.......
Probably because it really happened?
I don't see how the "lighting" on the car is any different from the rest of the scene.

Let me argue your point as if it was valid. ;)

On the guys legs the light is coming from the left. Also on the house to the right, you can see the sunlight and the shadows cast on the porch and the post. The snow in the yard of the same house is also being hit with light from the left. As well as the back of the grey car, the back of the red car and the tree. Looks very legit.

Light angles aside, it looks like not only was the guy chopped in there, but the car on top, because its tail light is very different in lighting from the red car below.

One [tailight] is in light and the other is in the shadow. Also you can see the guys reflection in the red acura integra.

I sure as hell can't see his reflection in the acura :D

If the pic is real it looks sh*ty!

My first thought also. She had to be accelerating quite hard to get both front and back wheels off the ground as a result... and it'd do a lot more damage to an integra at that kind of speed...

I knew it was a chop when I first looked at it. The grey car doesn't match at all. And the guy looks fake too. And why isn't the back of the Buick damaged?

Looks like a Dodge Stratus to me....

and it does look photoshopped because of the weird lines and lighting, but I don't see how or why a newspaper would photoshop a picture.

Somebody should repost this and put a POLL asking if it was Photoshopped or not, that would be interesting.

(I still think it's ps)

you guys are a bunch of tards. that is so obviously photoshopped its not even funny. sorry, but a car would never go backward over another car and cause no damage to the bumper of either car. anyone that has a few functioning braincells would know this. skoorb was definitely right to call BS.

I think it's a previous-generation Pontiac Bonneville

I think it looks like a photoshop job. The grey car looks sharper than the rest of the picture. It needs a little bit of a defocus to match the rest of the shot...

Anyone else notice that?

I don't know whether that is real or not but my wife's car went under my Blazer. I had to re-mount the gas tank and a new hood for her car.

Yet another reason to institute a mandatory driving test for old people.
