    It has penetrated enough to do engine head cover damage as well.

    Thats a setup, how could you bury a pick in the bonnet without distorting the surrounding metal.Ask a panel beater. Not Possible

    you need a mean average of three cars to prove its possible I imagine. I don't think its real myself.

    Can be done on Photoshop if one knows what they are doing. The image has been dumbed down to lower resolution, I suspect to try hide evidence of the Photoshop work. It is hard to cut an image out of one picture into another without leaving some evidence. In this photo I believe the evidence is most visible around the pick head and the windscreen background. If one enlarges the image, the discoloration around this area is still slightly visible.

    I agree with previous comment in relation to the entry hole, I would expect distortion of the panel, because it will flex/bend before it is penetrated.

    The angle of the handle also suggest that very short person was swinging it.

    I also have issue with the shadows on the car, I don't see any distinct shadows in the background.

    Of course the other way of faking it is to pre-drill the hole in the bonnet - might also need to shorten the pointy end of the pick!

    Cheers

    I've seen an image of an Audi with about a dozen picks stuck in it, windscreen, bonnet, roof, back window. It was obviously hated more than the Cit!
