Re: [DML] Re: JZD Was Brilliant!

I woud rather not get into an arguement... But you are only half correct about kicking out a windshield... 

Yes... Putting your feet in the center and having the windshield "pop" out is hollywood... However, if you put your foot in a corner and work your way around it will come out with out too much effort... I have done this numerous times at junkyards to make pulling a dash easier...

It will ruin the windshield... But you will get through it. Cutting it out is a lot easier and safer... But... Sometimes you do what you have to do...

Any windshield that can be kicked out with your feet is not strong enough to support the roof in the case of a rollover. 

Kicking out a windshield with your feet is a Hollywood stunt, BTW. In real life it is extremely difficult to remove a windshield. They have to be cut out with a saw.

Rolling a DeLorean is very easy if you run off the road on an embankment.
