Duno.... looks like he was using that die lift table that you can see collapse in front of the car to lift up on the front end for something and just pushed it over.

Looks like it has no engine in it either... so maybe that were trying to put it in from underneath using that die lifting table?

Fake or not, with a vette, there are points underneath that must be used to avoid damage.

Yah, looks real to me, and they didn't take into account how tail heavy it was without the engine and tranny, and those arms don't look like they spread out enough. Poor man's lift? The one's I've seen look beefier than that with arms that don't just spring back to center that easy.

I've seen that video before and it's real from what I've heard.
The 'Vette definitely has very specific lift points on it. Lots of owners buy these pucks that get installed on those lift points, because you don't want to risk damaging the sides, so the pucks extended down a little bit. They also make it VERY clear where you should be lifting the vehicle.

I've ordered a Quickjack so I can change my oil more often and not spend a fortune on it, as well as do some other work. Also good to become more familiar with my car.
