    Default Video - Nurburgring Crashes in 1970

    Interesting to watch. Car dynamics have really changed over the years.

    I love how many doors open and how many people fall out.

    I wonder if in 2050 our current safety standards will seem as primitive as 1970 compares to now.

    This video seems to demonstrate that if you drove an early70's european ****box sedan and attempted to change direction quickly, you had about a 50:50 chance of rolling, getting flung out while wearing bell bottoms and needing a haircut (damn hippies).

    Personal fave is the guy that gets flung out, rolls and is on his feet before the car comes to a stop. 10 points from the American judge!

    Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.

    You forgot strutting around in said bell bottoms looking nonplussed. It's like seeing a cat back on its feet after eating it on a bad jump and starts walking around like "nobody saw that..."

    I wonder how many of those have the beetle-style, pole-vault, swing-arm, better-off-with-a-live-axle independent rear suspension.

    Who needs a cage and 6 point belts or even a helmet haha. Looks like they all got away without any injuries. I was biting my teeth when i saw the white beetle convertible come into the picture.
