Not a whole lot different

GM v. Ford

1940 Chevy and a 1949 Ford. I'd call it a tie.

Tracks of my tears....

My late uncle had a car exactly like that Ford, sans damage. If I'm not mistaken, this accident occurred in front of a low-life drinking establishment known as the Corner Bar, where patrons frequently got totally smashed....

DEPENDability

"America's Most Beautiful Outboard Motors." With 1956 prices.

Notice how well the crumple zones worked

Two badly bruised sternums (sterna?) here.
