Man CLOSE is not the word. Looks like a photo shop job however as there is no shadow under the car.

I agree photoshop. I'd like to see you balance a vehicle like that on a guard rail especially when you can see the gear housing in the rear off center. It may be possible not knowing the cg of the vehicle but i doubt it.

Looking at the geometry of the tires, it looks real. The rear wheel is compressed because it is sitting on the axle, and the front wheel is the opposite because it's not sitting on the control arm, causing the wheel to hang.

I'd say real too...why would the other vehicle be parked there on the other end with a guy walking toward the suburban? Not sure how it would get there though given the side rails of the bridge????? If it's photoshop...a nice job of it!

With my luck, I would kick it and gas and/or anti-freeze would spill in the creek below. EPA would have a fit, and have a hay-day with me. But it would boost the local crane business.

I heard about a local guy who couldnt afford his car, so he set it on fire. The cops caught him doing it, insurance denied the claim, and he had a burned up ass car.

they would catch me kicking it.
