Need help on finding proof to show my dad cars are still safe without airbags?

if anyone can give me a website with an article or any statistics/facts that would convince my dad that seatbelts with the cars built in safety is still safe.

i mean like i want an old 68 mustang or some oldies car like that but they dont have airbags and the engines are too large to put one in, so my dad wont let me get one because of the no air bag. im trying to convince him the cars were still safe even without the airbags. like the purpose of the airbag and what item already helps with that issue would be nice etc.

thanks in advance

You don't actually get a 100 per cent safety on the road even with air bags. The best rule of thumb to follow would always be driving defensively. Always think that anything can happen along the highway specially if you are not being too careful and don't slow down on intersections. You have to let your dad know that when you drive, you also consider the safety and life of the occupants inside the vehicle.

You wont find anything like what you are looking for.........

Most of today's cars are better designed for crash protection than cars of six to ten years ago.

For example, a newer, mid-size car with airbags would be a better choice than an older, larger or smaller car without airbags.

U.S. Department of Transportation (http://www.dot.gov ) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety http://www.iihs.org

i would try to help.. but you really need air bags. i know too many ppl that have been killed in accidents.
please get airbags put in or somethin.... please.
my bff was killed in a car accident and if she had been wearing her seatbelt and the air bag wasnt broken she could have lived.

peace:]

No mustang was ever safe, even with airbags. Get something sensible.

Your father does not want you out in an old muscle car, full stop. Quite right too.
