Mmm- hmmmm! Line
And, I believe that a couple of red/white Torino's heading left in the traffic line. Seem they have a fire/police/something signs painted/decaled on the driver doors

And the green 68-69 wagon behind the 68-72 suburban on the lower left.

This wagon must have been going more than 5 mph when it hit...if it wasn't, then the "Battering Ram" didn't work right! lol

The thing is back then "ALL" the cars were rolling battering rams. So when beast met beast then went 'BOOM"! If that Torino hit one of these little cracker box economy cars the Torino wins.

Hard to imagine plastic bummer cars being collected and going to car shows in 50 years. Wonder if the plastic will hold up? How would you get replacement panels? At least the metal our cars are mostly made of doesn't warp with time...just gotta watch out for rusting of course.

There's a white Torino down front center in traffic. Might be more hiding around someplace!

"Naked are the cheaters" You're not kidding.
Followed by "A taste of hot lead". Maybe that's for the cheaters!

Throwaway cars. Safer yes with the air bags and crumple zones. If any of the bags deploy the vehicle is totaled. None of the plastics are recycled. It's all melted and burned when vehicle is scrapped. With older vehicles much more of it can be recycled.

That's a really cool photo Griffin!  How rare would that have been, 72 GTS vs 72 GTS at the strip!
