    I'm no photo expert but it appears to me there is some trickery going on.

    For starters, there is a shadow of another car right in front of the camaro. With this violent of a wheel stand that close to another car, there is an accident about to happen, so that's my first tip off as a fake.

    Not to mention this is on the street, where minimal traction is available (at best) even with the stickiest of tires.

    Something else that bothers me is the guy in the car, he looks stiff as a board and his head is straight up and down, almost leaning forward. About impossible to do with the amount of G-force it takes to lift the wheels that high.

    Strange shadow under the car as well that doesn't jive with the rest of the picture and doesn't come close to resembling the car at all.

    No clear shot of the rear tire either, but I'm betting it's not wrinkling, and the rear tire appears to be seperated from the body. That doesn't happen on an IRS rear suspension car, they have a bad habbit of squat. So unless someone has done a solid axle swap here, I'm not buying it.

    Just my observations......it's still a cool picture though..

    I think it was his other post about his 1200hp Camaro. Got a link that leads to a website where he used the "photoshopped" picture of him bringin the front wheels off the ground. I think I read it on there...
