what would happen if they had some crash-test pros set up the cement barrier and run a Ford Focus into it at 120 mph... triple normal testing speeds.
Careful out there... esp. you Hemi Challenger guys lol
The commentator is a complete homo...
pay per view event?
Minor dents. It’ll buff out.

naaaa,,, he’s just British.
That explains crash test Dummie 2, the one in white. I am not sure if it was a lesbian or his significant other.
What is it about guys? We just like to see things being smashed to smithereens.
At high speed.
I agree, annoying ain’t he
You get the feeling he thinks cars are “icky” anyway, and drives a Miata or some other ‘hairdresser’s car’ (as they say in England)

Purely speaking for myself, I was born a pyro... and it started with Tonkas and M80s as I recall lol
I can’t believe a Ford Focus is capable of 120 mph under it’s own power.
Many years ago I was riding in a 55 Buick that side swiped a tree at about 110 mph. The impact ripped the car in half. The back half remained at the tree and fortunately the front half with me and the driver continued for a block and and a half down the road and we had very minor injuries. If it had not ripped in half I would not be here today. On a side note I decided not to ride with Charley any more.
Interesting. When I was a kid my father was in a head-on collision with a drunk driver. Each vehicle was going about 60. Both drivers survived, and my dad’s car was actually fixed. I remember seeing photos of its front end being mangled, but it was fixable. Says something about the quality of old-fashioned Detroit sheet metal, as opposed to today’s little plastic boxes.
Those old cars can go, but the brakes are another story
My buddy had a 57 Chevy he put a modern Rat motor in but with original drum brakes, took two miles to stop from that kind of speed!
He should have got an anchor and threw it in the back seat until needed actually lol
How fast can they get a Volt to go? That’s a crash I’d like to see. 120 mph Volt, into concrete barrier! Cool!
The bodies in this car got kinda squished.
