Hey Shan,
I meant to say that Japanese cars are not as well built as the Germans,Americans or even the Italians.Even Ferraris crash and so does a Merc,but a Jap crash is worse than any other at the same speed i believe.

Infact,there can be a "fastest car in the world" but never a "safest car in the world".It simply does`nt exist.And like i said,its the driver which is the safest feature in the car.

Ya, see this is where i don't agree. The Audi crash is definately worse than the Accord crash, plus look at the narrow winding road next to the Audi, there's no way he could have hit more than 100mph on those roads.

But the Accord was traveling on a straight empty expressway until that damn dog walk by. Unless we know for sure, what speeds these 2 cars were doing, i wouldn't make such statements.

Exactly.It just wont be fair enough to compare both these crashes.We could argue over it for ages and still not get to a deserving conclusion.
Let the souls rest in peace now.

BTW, if anyone with a cam stays around the Hebbal flyover in Blore, there's this smashed Indica lying on the left hand side of the flyover (on the road that leads to "Tumkur"). That is one car worth clicking, ther's absolutely nothing left of it.

Dom, can you take a snap of it? Wish i had a cam that day with me.
