Yes, they were a death trap. But why not take a challenge and bring today's safety into a package of 1991 size? Look at that nose, that alone is far ahead of drivers legs and take a lot of space. Make them slower, but at least it will get better racing.While I agree that today's cars are much too long, let's not forget that the 1970 car was, in reality, a deathtrap on four wheels, with no consideration for the driver's safety. In terms of looks alone, the 1991 car is by far the best. It would be nice if driver safety could be possible with a much shorter car, because right now, they are simply much too long.
