Car crash safety standards over 50 years

In case anyone is wondering,I have a car that is just "around the corner" from turning 50
and every time I get into it I have to pause for a moment and remind myself there are
no airbags,collapsible steering column or any other safety devices fitted to the car.
My car didn't even come out with seat belts as standard!

It's amazing the different experiences those two drivers have. The passenger cell of the new car hardly distorts at all.

Cheers,

Most people are aware that newer cars are significantly safer but this video is a real eye opener.
The car or 4WD that you think is tough as nails and built like a brick sh1thouse, is quite possibly a coffin on wheels......
Thanks for sharing.
Cheers, Dan.

Technology is certainly impressive. I saw the video off Facebook; makes you put more priority on a safer car!
