    Actually----A cigarette won't cause an explosion---Just an open flame will.

    If you mean that smoking a cigarette at a service station field is not dangerous, you're wrong. I've seen it happen: an explosion when a guy threw the stump of his cigarette in the drainage well near a gas pump. Fortunately it wasn't very serious but the flames from the well burned his face and hair.

    In Russia they don't use seat belts. Instead every Volga car has an ejection seat as a standard equipment, as you can see.

    I can still remember my Mustang Pedal car being loaded in the back of my dads truck to go to the dump. It had a broken wheel. My brothers Fire truck went with it. Still had the wood ladder. Wish I had both today. Bummer

    WOW! I've been watching (and enjoying) this thread for a couple of years and now, all of the sudden, it's a post from my very own stomping grounds. Very COOL, to say the least. What year, any idea?

    Apparently the James Dean's wrecked car might still be in existence. The following (unverified) history is part of an article where the son of one of the thieves saw his dad hide the car when he was a young boy. That makes a great story, but the more verifiable part of the story is copied below:

    The mystery began in 1955 when Dean was driving his tiny 550 Spyder -- which he had nicknamed Little Bastard -- to Salinas, California, for a race. He hit a much bigger Ford Tudor that turned left in front of him and died from his injuries. His badly damaged car was sold to a fellow racer who used it for parts, and it was eventually acquired by George Barris, the famed builder who designed the Lincoln Futura-based Batmobile used in the 1960s TV show.

    Barris' original plan was to rebuild the 550, but the project never started so he loaned it to the National Safety Council. It was displayed all over the United States in order to raise motorists' awareness about highway safety. Often times, the mangled Spyder sat next to a sign that read "this accident could have been avoided."

    The Spyder mysteriously disappeared in 1960 while it was being transported from Miami, Florida, to Los Angeles, California. It was declared stolen, but the police was unable to tell exactly what happened to it and where it went. It hasn't been seen out in the open since.

    Gruesome end.
    They don't even do that level of horror in the worst shock movies. I'm sure people would get up and walk out if they thought people could die that way.
    Makes you concerned for police, firemen, paramedics and ambulance drivers who see this kind of thing far too much.
    Horrible.

    I'd be guessin' it's 1972 then - the Maverick that Gapp & Roush were running would have been a current car. They started making Mavericks in 1970 so the earlier years don't work and by 78, they would have used something else.
    Elementary.
