      That kills the myth of ‘those big ol’ cars were safe as houses’

        In saying that it was a Chevy not a Ford, slinks off into the distance…

        • Travis Poulson

          You filthy bastard.

  • motorizer

    Finally video evidence of what I’ve said for years. New cars are designed to “fold up” in an accident and protect the passenger cabin. I would far rather have a completely written off front end of a vehicle than that steering column through my chest.

    Engineers generally know what they are doing.

    That was a surprise. I was expecting to see the modern job disintegrate but I guess driver compartment design has come a long way.

    Rachel Maddow showed this video on her show and used it to claim “government regulations good, free market bad”.

    Yeah, that’s why Lada and British Leyland invented the airbag – socialist bitch…!!!
