Check out this photo of "auto polo."
Looks more like bull riding T style!!!
Wonder if you fill them with moonshine if thats what happened? Maybe trying out for crash dummy job interview!
So many questions!
A little more rough than car games at OCF.
So that's what happened to all the '09-'10 Model Ts ??
I had read somewhere that most of these dramatic auto polo pictures were staged so now every time I see them I look for evidence of that. The car on the right looks like it has a post holding up the rear of the frame and the left rear tire has a funny looking spot under it where I suspect a small block was later removed from the photo. Notice also that while the two airborne men are a blur, both cars are pretty crisp and stationary looking.
Still, it would be fun to build up a couple auto polo T's. Someone other than me can man them for the exhibition match, though.
That spot around the left rear wheel of the car on the left sure does look like it's been re-touched - Tim, I think you're right, it very well could be a staged photo.
This photo, and another in the series (same guys and cars) were discussed in this 2009 thread...
And the original photos on Sharpy are here:
These auto polo photos look legit to me.
I think we should add T Polo to the games at OCF!!! Who's game? (pardon the pun.)
I'll give them one thing. Roll bars. Think Tim is correct. The "flyers" look a bit off/blurred. Plus the photographer would be in a devilish position and what appears to be bleachers on the right are dead empty. Staged it is.
