Designed with passengers’ safety in mind (Aug, 1971)
That picture makes me really want to try to pull on that bumper so I can insert a giant SIM card.
Designed with passengers’ safety in mind
By December, this model of the Fairchild Experimental Safety Vehicle (ESV) above should be a reality, and in the hands of the Department of Transportation for evaluation. Among the safety features designed into it are: a wide, over-the-roof rear-view periscope; aerospace structural roll cage; hydraulic shock-absorber front bumper; torsion-hinge rear bumper; airbags; and padded interior. Fairchild is competing with AMF for a contract to build 12 test ESVs.
