100% agreed, but that does not rule out Ford, or the advantage of simple MASS.

A few years ago the wife hit an unexpected icy overpass in our Excursion. Fishtailed a few times, then clipped the guardrail which spun her into the median. As near as we could tell, it rolled five times before landing on the passenger side.

She dropped out of the seat belt to stand vertically on the passenger door. A guy behind her who saw it happen pulled on the windshield as she kicked it outward.

She simply walked out of it through the front window without a bruise or a scratch

A 9mm might expand
A 45 will never shrink
