Hey! IIHS Has 591 Videos of Crashing Cars!

This morning I landed on a crash test video that was made by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety.  When I was done watching the crash test, I realized that there were about 590 more to watch! GOLD MINE!  There is no denying it, watching cars smash into each other without real lives at stake is really about as good as it gets.  Most of the videos are short, sweet, and all business.  Car enters at stage right with a high rate of speed, smashes object at stage left. Then they do a slow motion replay, and it’s a wrap. Next!  It isn’t just brand new cars either, there are a variety of older car tests too! Here are 4 of my favorites so far.

Here is a 1996 Chevy Astro Van folding up:

2008 Smart Fortwo Crasharoo!

1998 Toyota Tacoma Smash

….and of course, the 1959 Bel Air vs. 2009 Malibu

Can’t see the videos? Here are the links in the same order:
