    The old lady said she was "rear-ended by a little red car that came speeding out of nowhere"

    It looks photshopped because there is no real damage on either car in the photo. You would at least see glass on the ground if it was real.

    I dont know still not convinced, the wheels on the blue car look as though they are pushed up on the back.

    Heres another example of how to park under another vhicle.
    But if I take the Testarossa first, I enlarged the pic and it looks real to me, also not the small damage in the hood - but of course I'll not waste that photoshop theory either.

    If you see the rear of the van, there are allmost no damage at all - the same with the 360 (apart from the windshield and at the tip of the hood) most of the damage will be visible when they pull it off the 360. (oh...really) LOL
    We all know if you break very hard the nose will "sink" closer to the ground.
    Both the Testarossa and the 360 have mid engines and therefore are both cars very light in front.
    Thats my theory :)

    Thats a fake. I've seen corvettes crash like this, and it is possible, but if you look at the horizon reflecting in the paint on the top car it reflects straight as though the car is parked on level ground. Also the rear suspension isn't in full droop.

    Jim and GTO, how do you draw lines and arrows on your computer? I know this may expose my lack of savvy, but would like to learn! John

    Right click the image and save it in "my pictures" or the desktop. Now open the pic and right click it. Choose "edit". Use the paint brush tool.
    Happy graffiti!

    If the Buick's right-rear tire is touching the top of the Testosterone's hood/right fender, as it appears to be, it wouldn't be at full droop. Furthermore, something must've been on the hood of the Ferrari, as it's pretty tough to mimic a compressed front-right suspension so well.
