Pancake a Car?

Cars, speed, explosions, and destruction? A medley of adolescent nirvana can enjoyed in the Mythbusters segment below, wherein the myth busters Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman figure out if it is indeed possible to “pancake” an automobile. They first demonstrate that the common car pancake urban legend is false; two semi trucks that smash into a car from oppositive directions at normal maximum speed do not flatten a car. However, the mythbusters wonder just what speed would be necessary to achieve such a result. The experiment is pretty cool.

Yep . . . awesome.
