While there was a lot of sheetmetal on the front of the 59, its evident there is no STRUCTURE. Which is why, it was destroyed and likely killed the driver in a 40 MPH crash.

Earlier, someone mentioned this should put the bigger vehicle being safer question to rest. I disagree. It only resolves whether the old TANKS of yesteryear really were safer or not. No, they aren't and I never considered them to be. Then again, if my Neon were in that crash instead of the Malibu, I MIGHT fare better than the 59's driver...
