I’ve gotten hooked on a podcast recently, “Why You’re Wrong.” I listened to episode 25 entitled, “The Good Old’ Days.” They were making several points about how things are actually better now than they were back in the days of our youth. One of the things they discussed was cars.
I’m not a car nut, but have long heard about how much safer cars were back then because they were heavier and made of steel. The pod casters made points about why cars today have different materials to protect us and quoted statistics to show the sharp decrease in vehicular deaths.
They made great points, but they also posted this video made by Chevrolet comparing a crash between a ’59 BelAir and an ’09 Malibu. Great job. (make sure you watch to the end for the results)
No offense to my car buddies in Greenville. Those old cars look sharp, but my modern car just makes me feel a little safer now.
