I was going through my Daytona Rally pictures and was amazed to how much bigger Denny's UV looked with the larger tires on it. Not just the height but the truck itself looks so much larger than my Pac Blue beside it or the other UV behind it? Looks more like a full size truck! Thoughts?

The side shot is obvious because of the wheels/tires but the rear shot is really interesting. Maybe because the purple one is closer to the camera?? It's a real optical illusion alright.

The Blue had more wax on it so absorbed less water. ;)

The difference in height is the wheels and tires.
The difference in size is the camera's forced perspective. I doubt there's a difference in the size of the parking spots but look at the difference on the right and left.

Handy tip: Next time someone takes a picture of you with a fish you caught hold it at arms length in front of you. It'll look like a whale.

The 2006’s were built during GM downsizing...........

Especially the FPR’s (“Full-size Proportions Reduced”)

Yes indeed... what adds to the illusion of "BIGGER" here is that the Ultra Violet :purple: is definitely closer to the camera.

Well we keep hearing the Yellow's are faster ( not the ones I've followed behind)
The black ones are the prettiest
The Red's are the sharpest
So on and so on with the other colors
Now the truth be told the PURPLE ones are the BIGGEST and BAD-ASS of them all, we all know pictures don't lie.

Nope No Photoshop... I didn't intentionally get closer to Denny's UV to make it look bigger. I took the picture because even as I stood there, his truck just looked so much bigger. Denny lives in the Orlando area, next time you Florida Chapter see him around take a good look yourself.
:wink2:
