Chevrolet Bel-Air collides with the future, quite literally

Usually this car is a beauty, but not when it comes into collision with its modern descendant.

It is a terrible shame to see such a car wrecked in such a way, but it does show just how far the industry has come, you watch the silver Chevy take the brunt of the collision, with its crumple zones easily overcoming the head-on impact and skidding to a stop. The Bel-air doesn’t fare so well, and neither does the unfortunate dummy who soon discovers the crumple zone in that car is his knees. With almost the entire side smashed completely off, it does go to show that classics are wonderful, right up until the point where they really, really aren’t!
