New and old

Saw this car with its damaged bumper at a parking lot yesterday morning. What surprised me is that entire bumper is a piece of plastic and it cracked like an egg shell. These bumpers may be fragile but they do protect the occupants as opposed to the older designs, like the Valiant below, made of steel but frequently left the occupants severely injured.

This is a throwback to the dinosaur age of automobile. The Valiant's last year of production in North America was 1976. You can tell this vehicle is old by the fact that it has duce tapes in many places.
