consumers cant do it themselves
and if they did it woudl be poorly and uneconomically
they are often only aware after injury has occurred to them

f4a: I disagree. Information is becoming easier, faster and freer because of the Internet Reformation. Also the government's inspectors would be replaced with even more stringent consumer driven testing, Underwriters Labs and Consumers' Report but on a massive scale. Consumers would be must more information and knowledge than there is now under the government nanny system.

Consumer would have to start acting like adults. This adultness could spread over to other areas.

Stores and distributors would be responsible for selling hurtful products just like manufacture. They also would act as safety police.

What if one had a Pinto in front of him and a VW behind him? He would need speed dial to his life insurance agent, but cell phones were 30 years in the future. Oh well.

where does that info come from

dead men tell no tales

somebody has to be hurt before the internet finds out and tells it

Very good point. When everyone acts like adults everything improves. Under the current nanny system everyone is inadvertently encouraged to be irresponsible crybabies.

-----------------------------------
yes, thanks for the correction. I shouldn't have said "exploded".

that post was a follow up to this one where i didn't say exploded.

"back then, the most dangerous position on the road to be was being behind a pinto while having a VW bug behind you, and a corvair behind it. That is called burning the candles at both ends."

Bugs did have tank rupture issues when re-ending another car, which could lead to a fire. Similar to just about any car could have in the 1970's (depending upon the collision.)

the original post was intended to be nothing more than lighthearted. My point was that one would be in between two gas tanks. (and not to mention the one in the middle car. To make it worse, it could be Pinto in front, pinto in the middle, and a VW but pulling up the rear.

Here is a picture of a beautiful Northrop T-38 Talon sitting behind a (near same yea) corvair.

I was a kid in the mid 60's and I though the corvair was the coolest car with these rims on it as seen in the pic at the following link.

kbw,
What bugs me was there wasn't any real problem with the Corvair. It had exactly the same rear suspension that the VW bug and the Parsche 911 used. Nader, being totally ignorant about engineering seized on a typical type of handling of swing-arm suspensions, and blew it up into a vast conspiracy on GM's part to kill off it's customers. I don't know if Nader was just ignorant, or deliberately made false charges.;
