Bodies , Cars, and Fucking: SheStayFabulous
Man old cars really were made to last
) his car ain't break a sweat
And this is why we used to make cars out of STEEL instead of FIBERGLASS! Sure, fiberglass is a lot lighter in weight and hence a hell of a lot better for gas mileage. But you hit anything at more than 20 mph and the entire body explodes off the fucking thing, and now you’re spending more to repair the car than it’s worth because you need a entire front end, read end, or side panel. They can’t just take the damaged section off, beat it out with a hammer, sand it, and repaint it.
Everything is made with the idea of it being easier to replace than to maintain, aka planned obsolescence. Thanks, capitalism
omg y’all know i love old cars but newer ones are SAFER because they are meant to absorb the impact so it doesn’t transmit all that force to your bodies this has been a psa thank you
Crumple zones in the front and rear of modern cars absorb the force of the crash so that the car is a write-off but your spleen is intact and you don’t haemorrhage to death before help arrives. It’s better to buy a new car or ride the bus than to have your liver smooshed into pate while its still inside you
Me as I’m internally bleeding to death after a car wreck: So glad my old car is okay! Fuck capitalism!
