Recommended Posts

If you know the source of the photo don't post that info here! It ruins the game for everyone else.

So what do you think? Real or model?

I voted model,...so that means it's probably real,....

I don't know, just something in that forced perspective background,....

Beauty car either way!

Still on holiday in France, enjoying ridiculously expensive and deathly slow mobile internet access. Can't afford the time or the Euros to research this one properly, so I'm going to say model.

The what appears to be a kangaroo hanging out in the window strikes me as being a very well executed model.

Pretty close vote... 23 REAL, 20 MODEL.

And the answer is... REAL!

For me, those disc brakes were too real for it to be a model. Tire sag, and the clarity of the reflection also said 'real' to me.

Yep I agree. However there were a number if issues that had me doubting. The windshield doesn't look like the stock materials or angle. No vent windows either. No examples I saw online had the red reflectors in the wheel centers. I'm thinking its some sort of Corvette based kit car.

It is a kit car.

I always look at door lines and the tires which in case made me think real.

Exactly. And the reflections in the glass, and the dangly bits under the car.

Couldn't resist tempting Harry with this one, a still-ongoing ebay auction for a "Rowley/Sturtevant Daytona GTC". Not sure what kind of photography technique the guy was using, but a couple of the other pics make it look way more model-like.

Yup...the road surface looks kinda like fabric, the tire sidewall bulges don't really show, the soft-focus-poor-depth-of-field image...all make it look model-like.
