Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Study finds small cars are the most dangerous

Quote:
A new study suggests bigger is better when it comes to car safety.

Online automotive marketplace and research outfit iseecars.com took fatal accident reports from NHTSA covering 2013 to 2017 models and combined them with information from its used car sales database to come up with a ranked list of vehicles with the most occupant fatalities per billion miles driven.

I think most people knew that already.

I drive a GMC crew cab 3/4 ton 4x

and I have a Chevy just like it too

Iíve been hit several times

They never seem to fair well

So far I have had very little damage

and have been able to drive home...

A little Ford hit me and their engine was

laying on the ground, totaled that shitcan

The only damage I had was the emblem on

my center cap was broken...

12 mpg...but I feel safe...

How many millions of dollars did it cost to find out that when a Prius hits an F350 head-on, the people in the F350 have a better chance of living?

I was driving a 1976 F250 highboy 4x4 with a 6"x6"x3/8" wall square tube rear bumper in a snowstorm. I was slowing down for a stop at a light, completely under control. A guy in a ranger pickup in the land next to me lost control and did a 180 with the driver's side headlight area very slightly rubbing aginst the rear of my bed and then contacting the tube bumper.

The tube bumper tore open that guy's left front fender, grill, hood, radiator, bumper and demolished his headlight. His truck was totaled. My truck had a very faint scratch along the side of the bed behind the rear tire.

On another occasion I was driving a Dodge 2500 4x4 when a lady came out of a parking space into my lane without looking. The front of her Buick went under my passenger door area between the front and rear tires. My rear tire ran over her fender, hood, bumper and grill. The front end of that car was ruined. Her car probably had 10K worth of damage. For my truck there was a big bump as my rear end drove over her car and then landed on the ground again. I had no body damage and did not even get a flat tire. The lady did not want to call the cops because she was afraid of a ticket.

Let's see, over a sixty year period I wrecked:

Dad's Austin A40 Somerset
Dad's Morris Oxford III
My Vauxhall 5cwt van
My Ford Escort 1300 (twice)
My Austin Maxi
My Ford Granada Coupe (it was the drunk driver coming the other way that caused it)
My Toyota pre-Tacoma pick up
and just lately twice was involved in no-fault incidents that wrecked one end and the
other on my FJCruiser.

Each time I walked away without a scratch to my body; each time the vehicle was
repaired - sometimes well, other times not so.

None of them could be described as large - except maybe the Ford Granada (certainly
by British standards).

No Commies

In 1970 I bought a Citroen Mehari...1,200 total weigh, two cylinder, 700 cc, and it would get 65 miles per gallon doing 65 mph...first plastic body production automobile, rag top, looked like a miniature jeep...great fun to drive but terrifying to ride in as a passenger...I once picked up a hippie hitch hiker going from SF, CA, to Marin County...it was a dark, wet and stormy day and as the wind buffeted us he reached out and touched the dash and then, looking at me, ask; "Mister, what is this car made out of?" and I responded: 'plastic, just like my credit cards.' As we came off the Golden Gate bridge the look of terror on his face was apparent...and looking at me he pleaded; "For the love of G-d mister, will you please pull over and let me out of this thing?" As it happens there is a turn out right there and you never saw someone open a cloth jeep door and get out...thanking me profusely and scurrying towards the phone booth to get out of the rain. The wind was really hitting the bridge hard that day and being a front wheel drive vehicle we were going forward but the rear end was not straight with the road...$2k out the door new, tube frame construction...and few of them have survived the years because of the cheap crappy French plastic in the bodies that after a very few years would crumble; bought it because they had stopped importing the 2CV a couple of years earlier and I couldn't find a good one.

Today, I drive big heavy Mercedes automobiles (it's an obsession) always in Diesel...I got over that notion about doing my part to save the/our planet and left the Mehari on the big Island of Hawaii!

Gawd Blimey Rick...you are dangerous on the road. In fifty years of driving I'm yet to have an accident and we do have some of the worst drivers down here. I've been softly rear ended twice but no noticeable damage. Last moving violation was back in 1974-75 if I remember correctly.

Right after I bought my F350 1 ton 4x4 a little piss-ant car car pulled out in front of me when I was going about 30-35 mph. I had the right of way.

I flipped that little piece of shit upside down on top of a fire hydrant on the other side of the street in a crumpled mess. The fire department had to use the jaws of life to get the woman out of her tin can. She was unconscious and I don't know if she made it or not.

I didn't have my seat belt on and didn't even feel the impact in my truck. I had the bumper on my truck replaced because it was dented and scratched slightly.

Reminds me of the Time when the Body shop guy next to my shop, came back to his shop late one night in his 78 Dodge 4x4 truck from a bar drunk and said some messicans in a 64 checy low rider were messin with him on the road after leaving the bar so he swerved over and ran over the back end of their car.
We drove back to look at it in my truck and sure enough there was a low rider with custom metal flake paint job with the trunk smashed down flat and rear window shattered ......

There is no match for the mighty F350! Good job, Pogo!
