    Very interesting. Thanks for sharing, BK.

    Probably about average for it's day, but a total fail by today's standards. It does manage to keep the passenger compartment largely intact, but the wheel is driven forward into the driver (even with a collapsible column...yikes), the the locking shoulder belts DON'T (double yikes). Driver bounces his head off the wheel, both driver and passenger submarine under their lap belts, perhaps due to them not locking as well? And the poor kid in the back get's tossed around like a rag doll, taking a big bight out of the jump seat arm rest, it would appear.
