You hit a Ford F350 or 150 with some modern plastic and thin tin car the truck is not going to get the worst of it… you will.
Here’s what it boils down to and looking at the different ‘thread’ comments, I see younger people that have never really used an older car pretty much in the realm of political correctness and ‘by the book’.
I never drove a ‘modern’ car until I was 65 years old, I’m 84 now so go figure… I drove a Model A Ford 150K as a youngster, cheap gas and insurance for $35 a year. After the military and flying airplanes in Germany I came home and bought a really modern ‘53 Ford convert, then other modern cars up thru’ the years, nary an accident or bumped fender, never had a problem.
Now all of a sudden these cars that America and I grew up with and used on and on are somehow ‘not safe’ ??..
Everything is relative, everybody is a product of their environment, any car is a death vehicle so kid nobody, it’s driving smart and with talent that prevents the death trap, not any car. Are airplanes safe… NO. Are trains safe… NO. There’s lots of ways to die so take heart, get out and enjoy those cars, drive the h**l out of them and have fun, forget the nonsense. Let the nut on the wheel be the only one.
