Default Letterman Drops Safe on H-body

My mom watches Letterman, not I. I just happend to see a 96 Buick LeSabre and then a safe falling 20 floors down on the rear left passenger side. That thing held up well considering the circumstances. The safe was 300lbs and fell about 200 ft. Just wonder why they didn't use some POS Intrepid or something. That thing WAS mint.

I want a picture of that!

if my calculation serves me correctly neglecting air resistance the safe would have hit the car at about 77mph
