    I don't think it is either, but I'm never good at telling the difference.

    Isn't that kind of the point?

    If it is, they did a very thorough job of it. There's shrapnel in the background (next to the white S-10 and next to the red Hyundai, and possibly the piece in front of the blue Ramwagon), and the Oldsmobile is very convincingly crushed as if the unit hit it from behind and above.

    I never said it was or wasn't the point. Seems like some people always know when something is photoshopped. I guess experience makes all the difference.

    Look at all the leaf debris on the ground, stuck to cars, etc. There is also large trash near other cars, etc. I am going to say that was taken soon after a thunderstorm or tornado blew that off the school and onto that car.

    I have a some questions.

    Why is the pedistrian so non-chalant as he walks within 15 feet of the car. I'd at least be looking at as I walked by, heck I'd walk right up to it and look inside. Either this guy is either blind or the car is photoshopped into the image.

    And for the car itself . . .

    The fan is into the back seat and accross the dash, so I ask:

    Where is the broken rear window (any of it)?
    Where are the rear and front C-pillars?
    Where is the roof?

    As for the fan. . .

    The middle of a parking lot and this fan falls out of the sky?????? That's a real precision work on the part of a tornado. Not a single car or tree seems to have been damaged.

    That looks like a computer fan. One thing I don't get it is that it didn't touch any of the other cars and the guy isn't looking at it.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    Since you mentioned that window thing it does look photoshoped. Look at the front window there is a space between the window and thing holding it on, or it is a really bad tint job.

    Maybe he just spent fifteen minutes studying it, and is now walking back to his hopefully uncrushed car.

    The driver- and passenger-side C-pillars appear to have been bent, curving along the contour of the back seat. The A-pillars were likely smashed straight down, implying that the unit was turning a bit as it hit, or turned a bit as it hit. The roof itself and the rear window are likely now one with the floorboards.

    It came from behind the photographer. Who knows how close the nearest building is.

    Looks to be a Georgia tag, maybe Florida (Florida copied us), either way it's just another day in Tornado Land.

    If it's photoshopped then it's an amazing job. Look at the reflection of the fan in the van's side and rear windows. Also look at the image of the destroyed car's wheel in the car's window beside it. The window's curvature is distorting the wheel. Yes this can be photoshopped, but not without a lot of work.

    I would then expect he would have walked inbetween the cars and be over to the left or behind the red car in front. In this case, he walked back to the street and over one aisle??

    I would expect the pillars would do a much better job of holding on to some integrity as a rollover isn't quite as devastating to the intergrity of the roof. Sure they bend, but follow the contour of the back seat considering the additional integrity the roof would provide. Also, I would expect the rear glass to be sprawled accross the rear dash.

    Not to close as there should be at least a car length for maneuvering room to park the car. 18-20 feet????

    Have you ever been in a tornado or hurricane?

    They can pick up cars/trains/buses/houses/tombstones, not to mention some little shards of glass

    We had a 3' diameter tree get uprooted and landed on the neighbors garage, crushing it, and the car inside. Everything in our yard (grill, toys, swimming pool, etc.) was scatterd over a 5 block radius.

    Sucks when it happens right outside your apartment building. Tree fell over in a storm. Nearby trees were summarily executed:






    OK, I admit it, I photoshopped this. This was an unblemished Toyota Corolla until I took my considerable photoshop skills and "crushed" it digitally.

    take a closer look, the wheel would not be distorted like that, nor would you see that much of the wheel through the window of the small chevy given sky reflection, AND the "distortion" goes right through where there should be blockage from the rear-view mirror on the chevy metro car, and distortion seems to be in the same place the drivers side door pillar is.... Also notice how the windows of the suv next to the crashed car look very "smudged" I dont think this is real at all.

    a object falling that fast would have knocked debris all over if it was enough to do THAT kind of damage to a car. there is no debris anywhere....

    Im guessing a fake, well done though.

    If that's the storm I'm thinking of, it was a whopper, for sure.



    (I have no idea why he parked like that to begin with, but if he hadn't, the tree would have likely hit the garage, which houses a 1955 and a 1957 Chevrolet. Good choice.)
