New vs. old car crash

Bravo to the engineers. 2009 Chevy Malibu vs. 1959 Bel air
They just don't build them like they use to.......damn right and luckily they don't. Look at the old car just fold up on the passenger. Unreal.

pretty darn impressive. i always thought the older cars held up better but would fuck up the passengers because they didn't give like the new ones do.

Agree, pretty damn impressive. Really dispels the myth of these old cars that used ultra thick steel panels crushing the newer thin steel/alloy panels. It is no wonder so many people died in car accidents years ago. Now it is very common that a car is totaled and the passengers walk away. Even cheap sub 15K imports are way safer than cars of old. Kudos to regulators pushing the issue of car safety and forcing the industry to comply. And a big pat on the back to the engineers who develop new materials and designs.

Very cool video. What really caught my attention was the difference in the roofs. The Bel-Air just crumpled and smashed the driver's head. You can tell the Malibu has that safety cage around the passenger compartment.

Oh, did you guys notice the fuzzy dice in the Bel-Air?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I thought I posted this a couple weeks back...I must be slipping...or you guys are tired of my random posts! LOL

This is a great video to remind people that a big car isn't automatically a *Safe* car. It's all about the design!

What a waste of a beautiful 1959 Chevy. I loved those teardrop tailights!
