These shouldn't hit the chopping blocks. I think those are saleable cars. If I'm not mistaken it's the pre-production cars that will take the hit for the team.

They wouldn't put window stickers including Onstar in crash test cars

I think the testing is done much earlier....
The reason I was not sure is that we have yet to see a performance test of the SS, and we don't know the real crash test ratings.

Just a little sick, twisted, crazy, idiotic, way to get your heart pumping a little more I guess.

Oh $*it...NINE DAYS !!!!!

In today's technology of CAD and CAM, they have already done the majority of crash testing.

All cars have to be tested. My Dad used to work at a place called Calspan in Buffalo NY and they had a large number of Crash Tested vehicles out in the back lot. Part of the work they do there. They are kept for years in case a question ever comes up. I remember a couple of brand new blue Trans Am's back there in the '70's. That was like "WTF is up with that"? Sad but inevitable.:( A small price to pay for safety.

What would be worse is -- what if the dealer called you up and told you they actually took your car, which was going to be delivered to you this week, and accidently used it as a crash test car.
