    Poor '37. What is the other car? That was not a "vintage" crash test either but contemporary to this film per the other cars on the test track in the background.

    But, that '37 at the time ~1960 was just a 23yr old beater. Be like getting a ratty 1994 Hyundai Excel (being a non-big 3 brand) and using for a similar demo (no pun intended!) today.

    I skipped ahead a bit and may want to watch that whole video later. Looks interesting and the lecturer does not seem too boring.

    I got it! All automobiles need magnets on the front bumpers (and the rear too I guess) to keep them from hitting each other.... Really, it is an interesting video.

    Was the car going the other way also a prewar Studebaker?
    1963 Champ "Daisy Stu Bludebaker"- sometimes driver
    1957 Silver Hawk "Josie"- picking up the pieces after an unreliable body man let it rot for 11 years from an almost driver to a basket case
    1951 Commander Starlight "Dale"- basket case, next project after the Hawk
    1947 Champion "Sally"- basket case
    1941 Commander Land Cruiser "Ursula"- basket case

    These PSSC films are still great to watch even after > 50 years. It's also great that someone put them up on the 'Tube.

    I'll give it a shot, I think that the other car is a 1938 Chrysler. Recognition is a bit difficult without seeing, even a glimpse of the front end, but there are enough styling clues for some degree of confidence.

    Truth be known... I got a Roku for the house TV a while back.
    There is so much to watch (for free) that I will not pay to see something any more (rarely did anyways).
    YouTube was always on the laptop, but it is a free channel on Roku, too.
    Have gravitated to watching YouTube. See something interesting, you can save the uploader (Like Airboyd).
    Some have commercials, but you can click them away after three seconds.
    Some stuff is copied in 4K now. Watching on the big TV is nice.
    Roku YouTube has weaned me off commercial TV..
    Your comment is spot on.
    Watching older historical shows (in depth with multiple sources) is way better than todays drivel.
