In an extremely unfortunate incident, a mechanic who recently restored a $1.5M 1929 Duesenberg was out for a cruise with the rest of his family near Ann Arbor, MI when a 2001 Volvo ran a stop sign and collided with the classic car. All five occupants were ejected from the Duesenberg as it rolled several times; they were not wearing seatbelts as the vehicle had none. Three were killed, while the Volvo owner walked away unhurt. Police say that seat belts would have made for a much different outcome. Such an incident might lead to stricter regulations for vehicles that are currently exempt from safety laws. At the very least, it should cause owners of historical vehicles to ponder the question of what's more important - historical accuracy, or safety?
