Thread: They don't make 'em like they used to

    They don't make 'em like they used to

    A 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air versus a 2009 Chevrolet Malibu crash test, head to head. This gives the expression "they don't make 'em like they used to" a new meaning.

    Damn! Now all the Do-Gooders will be petitioning for the removal of all cars built before 1960 on the grounds that 'Anyone driving one and being involved in a collision might be hurt.' Those who can think more clearly will be petitioning for the removal of all cars built after 1960 on the grounds that 'Anyone driving one and being involved in a collision with a care built before 1960 might cause injury to the other driver and/or passengers.' Clovers will be petitioning for new laws 'Restricting all cars to speeds of less than ten miles an hour, five point seat-belt harnesses, a minimum of ten air-bags per vehicle and rigourous enforcement of all aspects of the new laws by the gentle forces of Law & Order, who are there for the benevolent protection of all law-abiding citizens.'

    Me? - based on the amount of ferrous oxide emanating from the Bel Air, compared with the lack of it from the Malibu I formed the opinion that Chevrolet have improved their rust prevention quite a lot. Other than that? newer cars crash better than old ones as modern designs have more safety built in. Hardly rocket science.
