The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety will take a break every now and then from testing new cars and do an old fashioned throw down between a modern car and an oldie to illustrate the many leaps forward in automobile design. If you think those older heavier cars were safer? Um, not a chance.
Also, when somebody says they want to buy a safe car, really, today, you can’t go too far wrong. Whether a car gets a 5 or a 3 in a certain crash test, it’s all gravy next to what our parents drove us around in 50 years ago, without seat belts on.
By the way crumple zones would be a good name for a band. Somebody get on that.
