Ford F150 and Honda Civic frontal crash test by IIHS
When large, truck-based SUVs collide with passenger cars or minivans, the results can be devastating for the occupants of the latter.
But fatalities in such accidents are on the decrease in the United States thanks to measures employed by automakers. Traffic deaths are down 64 percent since the year 2000 due to changes in automobile design such as lower bumpers for SUVs and better-protect cabin cells for passenger cars.
In 2000, the death rate for car and minivan passengers in collisions with trucks or SUVs was 44 deaths per million. That came down to 16 deaths per million by 2009.
The study was conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, a private-sector group based in Arlington, Virginia.
"By working together, the automakers got life-saving changes done quickly," said Joe Nolan, the institute's chief administrative officer.
Ford revives classic '64-'66 Mustang - offered as a body shell
Ford has revived the 1964-1966 Mustang.
It's not as simple as walking into a dealership and ordering the classic
Ford Mustang but you can
buy a new body-shell of the first-generation model (the convertible too)
and begin to 'restore' it yourself using Ford-approved classic parts.
Prices for the 1965 Ford Mustang body shell start at $15,000.
The new shell uses modern steel and welding techniques that makes it
actually stronger and more durable than the original.
Once you have the body shell you'll need the powertrain, suspension,
brakes, electrical system and interior trim to build the car, which you can
take from an existing first-generation Mustang or can purchase from
The '64-'66 Ford Mustang is
the most ubiquitous of all classic models. It is the most insured classic
car by Hagerty Insurance, the U.S.'s largest insurer of collectable

Please be careful on the roads! Never consume alcoholic beverages before
driving. This is the most frequent cause of serious accidents. If you
drink, use a non-drinking designated driver, a taxi, or sleep over.
Follow street signs and traffic lights, but use your judgment too. Don't
try to beat red lights. And expect others to try to do so, so give them
time to go through, particularly trucks that have trouble slowing down.
Always stay at a safe distance from other vehicles. A general rule is the
farther you are from them, the safer you are.
Trucks are a special hazard. Give them extra room. They cannot see other
vehicles as well as you can in a car. If there is an accident between a car
and a truck, the driver of the car will be the one most at risk.
