    Why do I so not believe that?

    Every time I see an "old" car get into it with a new one, the old one always drives away. Happend to me a few times. My old Charger just kept taking the hits.

    I bet this was staged to look that way. New>Old

    I do many vehicle extrications a year. That video tells you everything about newer vs. older. We have had to upgrade our extrication tools to keep up with the strength of boron steel and other high strength metals. Cars maybe be cheap on the outside but inside all the panels is nothing but high strength metal bars. Boron gets stronger as more force is put on it. Many old hydraulic tools cannot cut Boron. My hydraulic Hurst spreader are about 35,000-40,000lb spreading force and my hurst cutter are between 140,000-190,000lbs of cutting force.

    Car makers today don't push the agenda and "fudge" results?

    I have never seen and old car like that fold up when hit buy a new piece of tin.

    The new cars have crumple zone, the old ones had real steel that did not fold up like that.

    I still call bullshit on it. I have had and seen too much to believe it.
