    Check this out. I watched the whole thing, just outstanding work. Check out the other vids where he drives it about also...

    Somebody does similar 3D printing for authentic model bodies for RC rigs; one he did that was impressive was a short bed bumpside F100.

    I'll have to try and find that. I'd love to see the guy standing next to this thing. At 1/5 scale it's probably about 4 foot long!

    I'd say you're really close.

    And the F100 video should be on YouTube. The vid has the truck out in the woods, oh, and it has very well-done sound.

    Some company came in and scanned a bunch of our crashed cars, then 3D printed the 1959 Bel Air we crashed in 2009. It is cool. My boss has it.

    We had a '59 4-door when I was a little kid; the floorboards were holed through, so when Dad would change lanes, I'd watch the lane stripes go by under my feet.

    I'd guess 1:24 because it looked normal car model size. Let me sneak into his office and get a pic of it.

    No, they just scanned it in our lobby. That's where we keep that and the Malibu it was demolished by.

    Wow indeed. What happened to the drivers door? is it still in there somewhere? Interesting how the front bumper and grill shifted a full 90 deg, i guess nothing much there to stop it.

    You pretty much don't have to preface it with "Not a Ford, but"... so much of that vintage iron is gone now that it's almost OK to like anything pre-80's. There's some nice red meat I would have laughed at decades ago that I would be happy to own nowadays.

    Why haven't you sent me a model of that, man? I thought we was friends.

    What engine was in it, and where's the engine? The photos make it look like it was taken out before the crash.

    Joseph, that IIHS crash video is startling. It was a complete, driveable car prior to the test. Dummy will post it, he loves to.

    Not he won't, and no he doesn't. It's on YouTube in about 1,400 places.

    I was sent all the conspiracy theory emails from old farts like the ones on this site who refuse to believe that test was real; "They cut the frame.......they put on Chinese fenders.....the front bumper was obviously aluminum.......they cut out the floor before the test........The engine was removed.....!" I've seen them all. I've invited each and every person out to inspect the car themselves, or shut the hell up. They always pick the latter. It's got a straight 6, three-on-tree transmission. There were three of us in the whole place that knew how to drive it, me being one of them.

    Here is the engine, and no, it wouldn't have performed better with a small block V8, you know, before you ask.
