Well, it goes both ways.Don't get me wrong - I like big cars. In MOST
cases they are a bit safer - BUT - If I had been driving just about
anything BUT my '61 Mini back in 1969 I wouldn't be here to write this
If he would have hit me, I'd be dead - but the Mini was small enough
to be missed, where just about anything else would have gotten at
least "clipped" by that 1965 390 Galaxie XL going about 85MPH passing
a line of 5 cars in the opposite direction. And being in a big car
that day would NOT have saved me if he had hit me.
140mph head on collision is NOT surviveable
60 MPH into a post trying to evade him would LIKELY not have been
