    Yeah, that just brought back a flashback, circa 1978, when a drunk dentist ran a red light at 8 a.m., and slammed into my side of the car when my mom was driving us to Sunday School. The imprint of the door handle stayed in my right ribcage for a few weeks, so I had that going for me.

    Wow. The car my wife's best friend drives will likely be her coffin in the event of a crash, it got a poor rating.

    Yes, I would like to see a video of my car crashing, but it appears my car is too old for the Web site.

    Which was that one, chaz? The Saturn Ion looks terrible in the head-on.

    My car sucks, especially on side impact. See you all in hell!

    Mine was good on side impact, average in head-on. Hopefully I don't ram it into anything.

    My accident was side impact in a Jeep Grand Cherokee. Lucky for me it was passenger side, which was not occupied. They didn't have a side impact video for the GC. The head on was enough.

    Next car is going to have side impact airbags. Don't care how far into debt I have to go to get them, they're going to have them. Not a question at this point.

    I'm suddenly very happy I paid for the side airbags in my Honda Element.
