RE: [DML] crash tests / safety

Any car becomes demolished when it hits a wall at this kind of speed.  The
DeLorean did so well that they had to crash test it at 40mph to break it in
the same way that the others cars would at 30mph!!!


Erik who I still think is on the list could have been killed when a Cadillac
hit his DeLorean side on.  Erik walked away from the impact with a few
scratches at worst.

I've been watching some old crash test videos of Deloreans and it 
really got me thinking. The cars were drivin into a flat wall at 
40mph...and were basically pulverized. Has there been any discussions 
about the cars' saftely? Since most accidents don't occur straight 
into flat walls, but more so off set head on or into slim objects such 
as trees, and at speeds in excess of 40mph...what are your chances of 
crashing in a Delorean and not being splattered to bits?

Obviously compared to today's cars with crumple zones and saftey cages 
it may look bad. But I mean the cars were just demolished.
