Sideways car illusion
Category: Double Meanings | Added: April 7, 2011 | 20 comments
This well circulated picture of a vintage car might seem like nothing unusual at a glance but look a bit closer and you'll notice that the direction its facing isn't quite as obvious as it first appears. The addition of the spare wheel works well to make the image even more confusing - is the car facing towards you or away from you ?

I wonder how the person is going to drive this car.

Both ways !., but the car is AWAY Acording from the position for the tires, it's a little tricky the imagen.

This is truly a disturbing vehicle.. I think the car is facing away from me but they put the front on the side.I can't look at it anymore. My Brian hurts.
