FRONTAL OFFSET TEST
OVERALL EVALUATION: Acceptable

Acceptable Good Good Marginal Poor Acceptable
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles
of similar weight.
The Mazda Protege was redesigned for the 1999 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was reasonably well
controlled. During rebound, the dummy moved toward the driver door. Its
head went part of the way out the open window and approached but didn't hit
the window frame.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the head, neck, and chest indicate
low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity.
Forces on both tibias indicate that injuries to the lower right leg would
be likely and injuries to the lower left leg would be possible.
1985 Mazda GLC 3-door hatchback
So here she is,
"She had me at hello" - a little curbside love! anyway....
So its a 1985 mazda GLC 3-door hatch.
4spd manual, manual windows, radio delete option, no tilt steering, no
power steering, no a/c, it does however have working windshield wipers and
rear defrost... haha
Car still has original spare, INCREDIBLY little rust... yeah, the bumpers
are bent, but no big deal...
It runs and drives incredibly well, not to mention BETTER than it should
considering its a 25 year old car.
