LOL.

One more reason I love living in rural Kansas. No DMV. I go to the county treasurer's office and the nice ladies ask me as soon as I walk in "can I help you sir?" Usually takes about 5 minutes to register some old tin with an antique plate that you only pay for once.

Massachusetts DMV sucks
Connecticut DMV really sucks
Rhode Island DMV is the worst in the country by far.

One of my 90+ year old customers related this to me.
At 16 he goes down to the equivalent of DMV in Louisiana .
His father is with him. My customer is there to get his first drivers license.
They approach the clerk. The clerk looks up and asks "Can he drive" The father answers" Sure he can". The clerk fills out the paperwork and hands him the drivers lic.
No test. At 90+ he has never taken a driving test, written or on the road.

Not a vintage photograph of a race car ... but here's a 3 minute long video clip from a DMV office surveillance camera:


Pay close attention at around the 1:32 mark of the video ... you can clearly see that the clerk behind counter #3 actually does move!

Thumbs up Re: Forward Motion Picture

I was just pondering this in my head yesterday while looking at a photo over at the Old Motor website of an old race car in motion. "How dey do dat?"

Thanks for the explanation Ryan! Makes perfect sense now.

Cool - I too was always interested in how that worked. Not enough to search the answer out. I don't think that I was on board in '07, I don't remember this subject before.

The chief of LAPD now wants to grant rights to unlicensed drivers so a trip to DMV is no longer required.

Still not far off of reality, but the "video" seems to just be a photo. I waited until at least 1:50 and never saw anything change.

Same here, walk right up to the window, my only gripe is the 30 mile scenic drive through Custer State Park to get there

I must have missed the old thread on the photography.......Kool, always thought it was some early trick photo processing. I have actually had my '28 roadster kind of look like that in my earlier years when my front frame horn's hit the square curb and everything above the frame, me included, would kinda angle forword.

The DMV out here is tuff too. Wasn't always that way. When I was 12, my dad let me and my younger brother buy a '28 Ford roadster. We purchased it on a Sunday and I rode my bike to the DMV on Monday, requested a moving permit, and re-registered the car. Me and my younger brother then rode to Hayward, the previous owner showed us how it ran, put our bikes in the back and I drove it home. I still have the car and several year's back I overlooked paying the license fee. I was coming home from a Goodguys event and the CHP let me know of the infraction. I went to the DMV and the drama started........$700.00 plus see a SMOG referee. Pissed me off..........so pissed I let it go another two years, went again to start over and another $900.00........I kinda went crazy.....er and they finally dropped it to $480.00 but still want me to go to the smog ref......come on I've had this car since 1959. Some of us need to become politicians and change a few laws.

Nope, it's a video. Otherwise it'd be a joke so subtle it would require explanation.

My best friends brother Ian, was standing in line at the DMV on a busy day in metro Detroit with his three small kids,.. Just about any given day you'll find at least a 45 minute wait with a lot of folks in line.

Well the kids are getting restless, as kids do,... and finally after an hour in line,Ian finds himself next to be waited on,.. He has both hands full of paperwork and three little kids all around him,.... All eyes were on the guy that would be next !

Just as the Lady say "Next !",... His 6 year old son decides to pull himself up by Ian's back pockets,... This didn't work out so well, as he actually "Pants-ed" Him right there in front of everybody !!!!!,.... Now Ian had both hands full of paperwork, And his pants around his ankles,........

The entire place exploded in laughter!,... So Ian had to bend down and lay his paperwork on the floor, Before he could pull up his pants,... As he started to raise his trousers,.. He realized he had to unbuckle his belt and unzip before he could get them all the way up. Did I mention he was at the front of the line ???

Anyway,.. He puts himself back together,.. gathers up his paperwork and his children,.. Walks up to the window,... and the lady was laughing so hard she was crying,.. so he had to stand there in total embarrassment and wait until she could compose herself enough to take care of him.

As he went to leave, she said, "Come back anytime,.... And bring the kids",... He said people were still laughing as he left. He told me not to tell anybody,... so keep this to yourself.
Now that's some funny shit there.... Poor guy!

RE the photo effect, it makes me wonder if the camera was held upside down, would the car then appear to lean backward. Hmmm

And RE somebody's post on the Connecticut DMV, x2 on that. I live in OK now, but still remember my adventure with the CT DMV some 45 years ago. Kinda nice that they let the mental patients out for a day job.

We have it pretty good in Oklahoma - a set-up called "tag agencies". They are private outfits contracted by the state. We get our vehicle titles, plates, and license renewals there. There are a lot of them, and they compete for business (capitalism works!), so most of them are pretty darned nice. If ya don't like one, you just go to another. And some are more vintage car friendly than others.

What a happy accident that the "foreword leaning photo" phenomena matches our cartoon concept of what a fast moving object looks like, or did we get that collective idea from seeing the photos?
