How not to crash test with the Pontiac Trans Sport

Another day, another dismembered crash test dummy reminding me why I check the NCAP ratings when buying a car!

This is not the Pontiacs finest hour, as it takes the full force of a front end blow to the left side of its bonnet. This video takes you through each phase of destruction with the usual slow motion but the more unique narration which is pleasing and very informative. The close-up is particularly haunting, as a dummy is squished between the front airbag and the still moving rear of the car. Next time I rent, it's not going to be the 2005 model!
