Citroën 2CV vs. Boeing 747

This is a match-up that you seldom see -- a Citroën 2CV up against a Boeing 747.
It just goes to show you that you should pick on someone your own size, and that a proper crash test should be conducted against a vehicle of comparable size.
(We are certainly happy that the two basset hounds in yesterday's posting weren't anywhere near this event.)

The guys at Myth Busters tried this with a taxi (Caprice, I think) then a Lincoln Town Car, thena school bus then a Cessna. All suffered the same fate as the 2CV.

Maybe that's why the whole idea of racing cars at airports was short-lived (back in the 50's).
I guess it's not a good idea to drive any car behind a 747.
