demo derby

OK, maybe the wrong forum...BUT:

if you had a 'friend' who was interested in possibly getting into the demo-derby hobby...what suggestions OK THE HELL WITH THAT CRAP
(too many words)

What cars are good candidates for demo derby: cost is an issue, and so is rarity. GO!

Mid-late 60's Chrysler Newport. The only car to ever have the honor of being banned from demolition derbys.

According to Car Craft's rules for entry into the derby at the Nationals this past summer, they said that it's banned because it's built like a tank and indestructible. That's gotta mean a lot when they allow anything else including Cadillacs, Lincolns, etc.

A chrysler cordoba is also a good choice to smash around with. Those things are pretty solid
