Crashing a car for a birthday

Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crashed a 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air into a 2009 Chevrolet Malibu. A spectacular crash and a fantastic visual display of safety and the road travelled by engineers to make our lives a little bit more safer.

There is a bit controversy around the video unfortunately. Apparently the Bel-Air is very old, and you can actually see a red dust whooshing from the bottom of the Bel-Air as well as flakes flying in the air after the crash, the dust and flakes is rust! It is believed that the Bel-Air would have performed better if it wasn't so old.

Well I'm not quite sure as crumple zones is very important in car safety. You be the judge :)
