Crashing a 59 Chevy Bel Air into a 09 Chevy Malibu

It hurts to see a classic car getting smashed up but I must admit that when I see crash test videos, I have always wondered how an older car would hold up.

This video was done by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety to celebrate it’s 50th anniversary. They paired up a 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air and a 2009 Chevy Malibu.

If you’re thinking the Bel Air with its size and big chrome bumper will hold its own, get ready for a surprise.
