    :lmao: You got me! I peeked!

    If you have specific, real-live photography-related questions, I'll be glad to move this thread over to the General Q&A forum. :D Over here, we're strictly OFF topic, where we kind of let Aprilraven and Anicole run amok.... ;)

    Hee, Hee, Nah I really meant to say what shot do you get from a speeding car? Sometimes it just sounds like a real question? I haven't a clue what I'm talking about now. Aprilraven, Anicole where the Hell are you when I need a cover? H E L P !!!!!:delete:

    Use a fast shutter speed or, like jonmikal said, try panning the camera as the car goes by. It's a tough technique to master, but if you are in a situation where you can't make your shutter speed fast enough (e.g. low light, low ISO), then panning is pretty much your only alternative to get the car from blurring too much. It will only work to an extent (if the object moves too much during the exposure time, then there's no way you can keep it completely sharp), but in most situations it will give you better results than just keeping the camera still

    EDIT
    hehe, nope, he meant what I was talking about above. It is panning the camera from side to side as the moving object passes by.
