6102361 story '09 Malibu Vs. '59 Bel Air Crash Test 496 Posted by kdawson on Sunday September 27, 2009 @01:43PM from the slight-knee-injury dept. theodp writes "To celebrate their 50th anniversary, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crashed a 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air into a 2009 Chevrolet Malibu. Hate to spoil the ending of the video, but if you find yourself participating in a similar car-jousting contest, pick the Malibu over the Bel Air. (Not that you'll be complaining afterwards if you don't, or doing much of anything.) Guess there is something to those crumple zones after all."
