Just so you know...

my rule is that I don't change stuff on the CAR. I might fool around with the background, if I think it would give away the answer, but it wouldn't be fair if I did any trickery on the car itself...I'm WAY too good with Photoshop! You guys wouldn't stand a chance... :D

Another car in the background, realistic lighting...all signs point to "real".

i'm going to say "model" just because when or how often do you see a bug like that parked in a parking lot..lol.. plus, i dont see any stars in the sky, but it could be a cloudy night too..i'm going stick with "model" though..

I'm going for real. It does look convincingly real to me. But if it's a model, the weathering effects are beautiful !

I'm probably gonna be wrong this time, but I have to say it's a model, it just has that feeling.

There is DEFINATELY some photo shop goin on here. I think the car AND background are both REAL. I also think that Mr Tricky :D has to do something to get us since weve been hot lately. It looks like he took a pic of real car and super-imposed it onto another pic o areal backdrop to make us think that the Bug is a model. Definately real though. A + for effort Harry. :)


Well, you obviously think I'm WAY more devious than I am! :blink:

Actually I didn't do a darn thing to the photo other than crop it a little tighter. It's getting pretty hard to fool you guys lately...most of you were right, it's REAL!

Thanks to Darin B. for the photo...next ROM coming MONDAY!
