We don't have airbags, so how would our cars react in a crash?  Here is a crash test video from 1985:

They should have had the dumbie's hands bracing against the wheel.  More realistic that way.  Still would be pretty bad.

 

I've seen the effects of a 40mph crash head on into a tree in a EA82 body.

 

 

Come to think of it that guy did break his nose

If you go to youtube and look at their other videos they do a few older subarus.  Most of which look like they would hurt equally.

 

And I also no longer believe the spare tire would help anything, you can clearly see the dashes being shoved into the passenger compartment by the spare.

It looks like the seatbelt is completely worthless, as it extended another 8 inches or so after initial impact.
