crash test kinks

in order to meet crash tests there are crinkle points built into the cars. I have seen a lot of gm cars and trucks with the mid section fold. In areas where they salt the roads the hood hinges get rusty and stiff and when you close the hood on one you get the crash safety fold that is suposed ot keep the hood from coming thru the windshield. I have seen some trucks and cars in the bone yard with angkle iron pop rivited to the inner structur on a folded hood
