The progress of technology: a 1959 all steel car vs. a 2009

Watch this 'til the end as there are several camera views and summary text.  It is 2009 car vs. a 1959 car in a crash test.  How many times have you heard: "I wish they would make cars the way they did in the old days."  This video dispels that myth. You know how we always think about what big huge tanks the old cars of the 50's and 60's were for size.   We talk about how there is so much plastic on the new cars that if one of the old tanks ever collided with a new car, the new car would be demolished.  Well, someone in the insurance industry put that theory to the test.  Be sure to watch toward the end to see the overhead view and the assessment of driver injury. Fasten your seat belts.
