    Two years ago, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety celebrated its fiftieth anniversary by taping the offset frontal crash of a 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air into a 2009 Chevy Malibu. The Bel Air did not handle it well. The Speed TV show Stuntbusters, which airs on Tuesdays and "explores motoring myths behind the latest automotive technology," did the same with two Cadillacs.

    Not too surprising that the 62 did what it did. You could see the tremors of energy shuddering through the body work as the cars collided.

    The 62 Caddy held up better physically than the 59 Chevy in that other test. Still not a great outcome for the driver, though.
