Thats a nasty crash. I was never a fan of cars without a frame like our g3s.

That cant be?? The General Lee with Bo and Luke Duke never even got a scratch Cool Anybody see The last Graveyard Cars episode? They were tearing down the Charger that made the world record jump from the dukes of Hazard movie.
The front end had solid metal bracing where they hooked up some kind of catapult, It was the only way to get the distance.

At least the big @$$ cross-member on our cars gives us a fighting chance, not to mention the 100 lb braces on the coupe doors. Thank you John Delorean.

The general Lee always landed nose first, the most unrealistic way  a car could land & still drive away.

I hope the previous owner of that minty '59 Chevy was dead before they crash tested his car. Could you imagine maintaining a car for decades, then sell it late in life, to see it destroyed in a crash test?

Dammit, I did some work for that agency a couple years back. I should call up my contact and complain about what they did to that Bel Air.

I would loose it. I hope I never live to see something like that happen to my Chevelle Evil or Very Mad

Someone posted somewhere that I read, that they had taken the engine out of the '59 to make the newer car look better. With no engine to take the impact, it would seriously skew the results. Either way, I'm getting tired of these people and the stunt guys and directors in movies destroying classic cars.

The 59 has that x frame . Probably not the best in that kind of crash. Try it in a 76 Impala and see what happens. I bet the results would be different.

Plus a '59 would not have seat belts, you were going to die in a head on collision....

It's a heck of a thing to see a rear diff flying through the air like that.
