    Well not the safest MAKE I’ve ever seen.

    Car manufacturers spend lots of cash designing cars to not cause damage to humans if they get run over. This is why jaguar now have a badge instead of the creature prancing on the front. The idea is the person gets pushed up on the bonnet (hood) and nothing sticks up and into them including windscreen wiper’s etc etc. This would be a horrific it hit someone. You’d probably get sued and because you’ve modified your car your insurance is void.

    Sorry to be a kill joy just don’t want to hear of anyone getting mangled by one of these!

    Well, shoot. I guess that means that the dope pressure activated taser chainsaw hood ornament is not pedestrian safe, either. Back to the drawing board.

    Man I hate safety concerns! This is a brilliant idea, otherwise. Surely there is a safe way to implement such a thing? Some cars still have ornaments, don’t they?

    So Ric_ how many people have you run over? Personally I was planning on looking out the front window of the car while driving. Person=stop… pretty straight forward I think.

    “This would be a horrific it hit someone. You’d probably get sued and because you’ve modified your car your insurance is void.”

    Ric i agree that if you hit someone this would be horrific but then again even if I had a tiny pillow as an ornament and I hit someone with my car I don’t think that pillow would make it any better.

    Second, are you telling me that since my insurance won’t cover my modified car??? Thats a load of bull and you should do some research before making a silly azz comment like that.
