These 1962 And 2002 Cadillacs Crash Directly Into Each Other (Video)3
You could always be taught a history lesson in the evolution of automotive safety, but we think it’s better that it be demonstrated instead. Like what the NHTSA did with 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air and a 2009 Malibu, Speed TV’s Stuntbusters had some head-on fun by pitting a 1962 Cadillac Sedan de Ville and a 2002 Deville in a competition of structural integrity. Both were sent launching towards each other at 50 miles per hour, and the video makes things pretty clear-cut on which car you’d rather be in. We should also point out that the old ’62 Caddy has a full 700 pounds on its successor. Lesson: size doesn’t always matter.

Even though it was a pile, I died a little when they crashed the classic Caddy….
I prefered the NHTSA crash than this one. For some reason, Speed likes to think its viewers are 12 years old and treats them as such.
The ‘Bu crash is more matter of fact like the viewers are ‘adult’ and doesn’t rely on gimmicy editing.
Oh yeah, and the N* 4.6 was a “big block”!
I know — they messed up big time on the Northstar. The two engines have as much in common as the two cars in the video!
And how is it that the chick comes off saying that she things there’s some knee damage and that there’s “an air bag issue”… Does anyone know if she actually has a license? 🙂
