    They haven't been crashing dummies for nothing. My last daily driven hotrod was a 1966 Chevelle also the last year before a collapsible steering column update in 1967. That 1959 bel air did not fair to well.

    I have seen some of those test crashes.
    I even removed a bunch of steel off the front of my 57 so it is even more prone to soda can crush on me.

    But the way I see it is i did not get that car to crash it..I do not go around worrying what is going to happen in a crash.
    I got it because it was only 1500 bucks and i liked the price and the car.
    I have already been hit in it from a lady that was running about 45 in a neighborhood around a blind corner.. she left over 60 foot of skid marks in her newer suv.
    She got towed home.
    I drove my car home.. they both got damaged in the front ends.

    I had some spare fenders and built a fiberglass front bumper :)

    I was thinking the same thing. I can't believe they destroyed one that was that nice!
