are you trying to say its not safe?
he was cruising down the freeway at 65mph when he got rear ended by a Dbag in a Porsche....
and I think he has full cage, harness, ect... I'd say it is an extremely safe car.

he probably could have received a shit ton of tickets though, I know cali pretty crazy when it comes to modded cars/ emissions.

I dun see a cage in there... so your eyes must be better than mine. I suppose it really doesn't matter because if you think a harness without a hans is safe... then your definition of safe differs from mine.

Also... I wasn't there so i could never comment. But I don't see much 'rear-ended' damage going on there. I do see quite a bit of backed this mofo into k-rail damage however.

LOL there are 3 treads discussing this now. I'm not positive on his safety equipment but I thought it had a cage and all the good stuff, but if thats the case it would be useless without a hans. In one of the threads he tells the story of what happened. he essentually got PIT maneuvered

cant be less safe than any other pre airbags car.

He is a 1199 member so the odds are they would most likely look the other way as far as Mods go, I know

I see the 1199 frames all the time on sports and hi-end cars. Did a double take the other day when I saw one on a Prius!
