Vintage Cars Were Tough, They Were Made Out Of Real Steel, Right?

That's what I always thought.

Until I watched this.
Pay close attention to the conditions inside each car.



I would have thought the old Chevy would cream a newer car.

I would have been dead wrong.

Hard to believe what they have done with modern cars.

  1. This is not surprising. Cars in the 30's, 40's, and even early 50's were made of pretty tough metal. By the late 50's Detroit had cheaped out to the point that you could lean on the hood and the metal would bend. It was not uncommon to see rusted-through places on the sides and back of a car after 2 or 3 years unless it was kept hand-waxed on a regular basis. However, tough isn't everything. A lot of times one of the old 40's sedans would survive a wreck and rollover with just a few dents, but the driver would be killed. A lack of any "crumple zones" meant the entire force of the collision would be absorbed by the passengers. Add to that a lack of seat belts and the prognosis for survival was not good.
