I’m guilty of saying it myself…along with probably everyone else who drives and restores classic cars.
“If I got into an accident with one of those new plastic cars – they would be the one to get hurt. This sweet ride is made of real Detroit iron, its not gonna get a scratch on it in a crash.”
But I guess I can’t really make this claim anymore as its now been proven what would happen if you crashed a 1959 Bel Air into a 2009 Chevy Impala…and the results are not in favor of the Bel Air 🙁
Damn – this would have made a great mythbusters!
