Check this out!! Hopefully nobody posted this already, many of you have probably seen it already. I must admit, despite my car knowledge I was still shocked by the results.

Made the rounds a while back.

LOL ok, I figured but couldn't find it when I searched.

Important to note: '59 Chevys had notably weak frames, well known even in 1959. How a full perimeter frame would've changed the results... we'll never know.

A '58 DeSoto Adventurer frame weighed 318 lbs, a Chrysler 300; 474 lbs. Just saying; that's a lot of structural steel difference there. A C-channel X-frame in a '59 Chevy cannot compare to a full-on boxed perimeter frame, like one in a '59 Buick, for example.

In other words, I place much more creedance in design, than I do in vintage.
