Mike,
It's not that I don't believe it's done. Not a problem there. It's just that THAT picture looks a bit goofy.

Indeed.

Also looks like there is some blurring around the tire and strut as if someone cut something away and blurred it.

In a photography class that I took years ago, we had to do a study on the effects of shutter speed and panning in reference to stationary vs. in-motion objects. Now, I know that cars aren't as fast as airplanes, but the effect is just as pronounced. Panning on a moving car and using 1/1000th shutter speed, I could stop the car well enough to read the lettering on the tires, but background and foreground objects were still blurred. Following an even faster-moving airplane would have en even more pronounced effect.

I'm not doubting the photo's veracity, I just like to talk about technical things.

Interesting. I don't doubt your experience, but what's surprising about this is that, if the car is going 60 mph, the lettering on the tire directly above the axle is going 120 mph, while the lettering directly below the axle is going 0 mph (same as the background). So if you're panning perfectly with the car both the top and bottom of the tire are moving relative to your panning shot at the same speed as the background. The lettering on the front and rear of the tire is a better bet, but is moving up and down at 60 mph in addition to moving at the speed of the car. The more I think about it, the more I'd like to see what that pic would look like.
