[DML] Re: crash tests / safety



Interesting that in one of the videos there is an airbag going off. In
the higher speed crash the hood restaining brackets did not seem to
help but the door was forced open. In both crashes it looks like the
occupant cabin remains largely intact even with signifcant destruction
of the whole front of the car!
