Malibu slammer

A Short Series of Interesting Car Crashes We Didn't Expect to See on a Monday#1: 2009 Chevy Malibu versus 1959 Chevy Bel Air.
 
Allow us to explain. To celebrate its 50th birthday, the American Insurance Institute for Highway Safety decided to stage the crash to show how far car safety has come since the Fifties. How thoughtful. 'Happy Birthday! Have a car crash!'
 
Most people would simply have bought a cake.
 
Still, the results are quite literally smashing. You'd think a lump of old Yanky iron would stand up well against a hunk of 21st Century plastic and poncy aluminium. But then you'd be wrong...

Its a great indication of how far safety has come, but to see them destroy a classic Chev like that is horrifying... Those things are cool cars, and not cheap either!
