That fake 59 chevy has got to be a DELTA 88!No way it was hand made FULL METAL CARBON.Just a damn aluminum rust bucket late model copy of the ORIGINAL 59 IMPALA!The crash test is FAKE.

Yinan Liu says:

no shit. but i still think the old car has 'design.' modern cars are all alike, which is sad.

Matt M says:

59 has no engine.

That 59' must have been from up north & the frame was ate up from rust. The old car should have tore that new piece of crap a new one. Everybody knows new cars are just hyped up as very safe but its all lies. Give me any car pre-airbags & I am happy.

One car is playing Buddy Holly on the radio.  The other is blasting Rihanna from the CD player.  Looks like Buddy Holly loses……

the institute!?!?!? fall out 4 anyone lol xD

Blair Berg says:

59 bel air has more style and it's way more cooler

Christopher Wyller says:

My car has got a full frame, factory reinforced roof and side impact bars in the doors, locomotives sized impact bumpers and has been the favorite for demolition derbies for years. Add to that i've heard stories about how people survived wrecks in these cars. In fact, A 2009 Chevy Malibu rear ended me and got all the damage where my car didn't get a scratch. Also They should have tried that test with a Cadillac or even a Ford. So I suppose it's just a perspective thing.
