1980 Crash Test Results: Fiat Strada & Chevy Chevette best...?

I wrecked a 1980 Chevy Chevette (one of four Chevettes I've owned) horribly in 1986. I lost control and hit the concrete divider on a curvy part of the highway.

The car was absolutely totaled but started back up and got me home before the police arrived (I was 22 and a wee bit lit, and could only find 3rd gear. Worked that clutch. Luckily, I was within a mile of home). I was uninjured, but inspection of my blue little C-vette the next morning was nothing short of amazing. The entire front end was shoved about a foot towards the passenger's side, the battery was smashed (but still, apparently, held some charge), and the radiator demolished. It would never start again =(

I also had a 1976 Fiat Miafiori 131s... never wrecked that one, but it was a ton of fun.
