Does Zapruder show change in limo speed?

Several years ago I started a composite of the limo going west on Elm over a new

view of the same area. I never did complete the study, and came across it today.

It is still a little rough, but seems to show a limo speed change. What do you think?

Don't be misled by the large sign at right; it was later removed and replaced by a

different and larger one farther west.

How do you interpret this seeming anomaly?

It's quite simple really .... the closer the limo is to Zapruder while moving left to right - the distance it traveled will be more noticeable than if the limo traveled the same speed, but was moving away from the camera. Another example might be ... a plane flying by one's position will appear to cover a great amout of space in a very short time span, but if the plane is more out in front of you and moving away - it will appear to hardly be moving.
