Darn. At least instead of going straight to the scrapyard, it went to good use training fire fighters. However, I think they should have picked a more modern vehicle, since they all seem to have side air bags in all kinds of places that the jaws of life would normally be used to cut through.

I wonder if the windshield is still good? (looking at replacing mine)
AMC/Jeep gauges are for amusement only. Any correlation between them and reality is purely coincidental!

Reminds me of those nasty creatures from mythbusters. I agree with above: take a more modern car with airbags and high voltage electrics, like a Prius.

A Prius is perfect because those batteries present all kinds of issues in an accident.
