Re: Now ask me why ...

"Folks may like the old cars because they won't see much damage from a random ding in the parking lot but they are nowhere near as safe in a high speed crash"

The old Range Rover had solid steel bumpers attached to the solid steel girder chassis. A neighbour once reversed into it one frosty morning. I later wondered about the paint scratch on the front bumper - until he came to apologise and showed me his car's crushed rear end.

One problem was that you couldn't get into a tight kerbside parking space and use the bumper "ding" method to judge the neighbouring cars' bumpers proximities.
