crashes from the '70s on the nurburgring

Nurburgring Nordschleife Crashes 1970 at Adenauer Forst. NEW ! More crashes - YouTube

what i noticed:
- no porsche flipped
- beetles had crazy strong roofs. they barely seem to dent after a few rolls
- no one wore seatbelts
- after rolling over, and being ejected, people seemed to just get up and roll the car back
- car doors really want to pop open after rolling over

i thought for sure the convertible beetle carrying a family was going to be a bad one...

That looks like a lot of fun and very scary without a seatbelt
