Someone's messing with you, that's not a "vintage" pic, the airplane is modern day stuff.


Nobody is messing with me. It was an honest mistake and it has been deleted.

Hopefully this makes up for it.

There's some weird Photoshop action going on there. VW didn't make the car bigger.


original pic.


Not sure it's just perspective. Objects in the foreground cannot appear smaller than in the background due to perspective. It's always the other way around.

It is odd that the race number on the split takes up much more space on the door than the race numbers on the other VW's. Another oddity is that the split's rear wheels look much smaller than the front ones.

Everything seems to point to the split being a small replica, not a real VW, but if so it's an extremely good replica.
Here's a link to a series of pictures from the same race in Zandvoort 1961 http://www.touringcarracing.net/Pages/p%201961%20NAV%20Sportwagenraces.html

Seems like a normal size Split bug in this picture (on the left here):

^^^ but that cabrio and car 'number 8' are getting larger all the time! Wink

the photo of the rear view of these cars is an interesting optical illusion - if you use dividers or a ruler on it - the split's wheels are larger and the door bottom to waist trim distance is larger than those in the background. maybe it's the smaller back window causing it...

Clearly in that other picture, in accelerating to pass the other two Beetles, the split was traveling at close to the speed of light, causing a warp in the space-time continuum and resulting in a reduction in its mass... Laughing

It is actually an optical illusion from using an extremely long telephoto lens. The cars are much further from the camera than they appear. When objects are farther away, the effect of perspective is reduced--the image becomes effectively "flattened" like an isometric drawing. At a normal viewing distance, the car in the foreground would be much larger than those behind it. At this greater distance the car in the foreground is still actually larger--as the last poster noted--but less so than your eye expects. And so your brain interprets it as being smaller.

She doesn't look it, but I would think she'd be uncomfortable given that Bug has bumper guards...

I was still not sold, until I saw this photo from this thread:

The Beetle looks much smaller than it should relative to the bicycle rider in the distance. It should really look quite a bit larger. But because it is a telephoto shot, it fools the eye the way oldovaldriver says above. Very cool! Very Happy
