Corvette C3 Crash

 

These are probably some of the ugliest C3 Corvette crash pictures you will ever see.  I do not know much about this crash but I do know that the driver and lone occupant survived.  So what may have attributed to his survival in such a horrific wreck without air bags and the safety features of cars that are built today?  A couple of factors come to play here.  The C3 cars have a heavy steel roll cage built around the driver and passenger compartment so this provided protection during the rollovers.  The heavy steel frames of these cars help to keep the the passenger compartment attached.  Also fiberglass absorbs a lot of the impact when these cars crash.
