While I wouldn't consciously choose a car based on this, I am certainly
interested in it.  I have this morbid habit of REALLY checking out wrecks that
involve the same model car as mine.  Of my past cars, I've seen the aftermath
of 2 head on collisions involving the same model as I currently owned.  Both
faired well.

I think the scariest cars are the boy-racer camaros, firebirds, trans-ams,
etc....all cars built to go fast, but can't handle the speed that well.  Very
unforgiving cars and don't survive wrecks very well either. (YMMV)
