I was up in the Soo yesterday and bought my 1st Car and Driver magazine.
That was a 1st. Anyway.. upon closer inspection of the various pictures, I did notice the photo lining up all the cars.. along what appears to be shore line was actually taken inside the Quarry next to one of the shallow run off ponds. If you look close, you can see the rock wall behind the cars. I had been thinking the ground under the cars looked way to flat to be shore line on the lake..Once I saw the magazine picture,, I understood why.
As to the rest of the pics showing the lake background .. well, those were not good. Even the two on private property in the sand in front of the boat house. The really troublesome shot is the one showing another large group of test rides setting on the rocky shore...
Still, it really doesn't matter where all the pictures were taken... its what the images imply.
