I once owned a Chevrolet Corvair which was Fisher Body's first unibody (frameless) attempt.

These rusted in half where I was, because GM didn't get the concept of using extra metal or corrosion protection replacing the frame.

It was the 140HP version and actually handled really well when you kept the recommended really low front tire pressure. I have no idea how one could handle today with radial tires. but yes, the driver's side floor rusted out to the point that Fred Flintstoning was possible accidentally as well as on purpose.

It was unsafe at any salinity.

A few months ago right in front of my house, a guy ran himself over with his truck.

I heard voices yelling from down the street, then heard a CRUNCH!. The guy had left a bar around the corner with two guys chasing him, and ran into the back of a parked pick-up. That's when I stuck my head out the door.

He then backed up and sideswiped the same pick-up, only to run into the ass-end of another pick-up parked in front of that one. He backed up once again, then ran into the same ass-end of the pick-up.

By then the guys running after him had almost caught up with him. His window was rolled down, and he stuck his head out to see how close his pursuers were. At this point, he somehow released the door latch and fell out of his truck, rolling underneath.

The idle of the truck in reverse caused it to roll backward over his chest. The truck continued to roll down the street until it crashed into a large cedar fence at a neighbors. I called 911.

The police and rescue teams took him away.

He was back on his bar stool in about 36 hours, according to the bartender.

skinink: Tried to stop his car Fred Flintstone style. That would have been funny to see. Was he screaming Yabba Dabba Doo?

You know he was the most surprised, being as it always worked when he was 14 on a bike or skateboard. -facepalm-
