Mine was a '98 Nissan Altima. My only "injury" was a burn like think on the
left wrist. I was never sure if it was a chemical burn or just a rub from the
airbag. The air was quiet foul.

The Blazer hit me at 30-35 probably at a stop light. I was fourth in line. I
hit the brakes hard and the nose dived, probably also helped by the Blazer
pushing the backend up. So my bumper went under the little tercel, destroying
my grill. The back end was about a foot short.

The Tercel drove off (after the cops let her go) with only a scrap to the
bumper shell.

I kept the compact spare for the MG. Fits great.

Did the RV8 have airbags?

car was totaled (150k miles and 8 years old).

I don't think you can correctly aftermarket design and implement one, but I
LOVE airbags and the fact that they are in my 2006 honda accord and especially
in my daughter's nissan and my wife's honda.
