    From Forbes magazine, take a look at the kinds of control external hackers can acquire over your vehicle:
    1. Turn off brakes
    2. Accelerate
    3. Yank steering violently to one side

    Now compare this with what transpired with Hastings, who was an extremely capable and inquisitive reporter
    Basic story
    Video preceding wreck

    The man was on to a "big story", he was under death threats from some elements of the US government, particularly defense, and he was known to drive slowly by his friends (he drove like a grandma, was how they put it.)

    Someone had this man killed, I believe

    Good to drive old cars.
    I watched the other loudlabs video of the crash scene, only about a week ago. Another video shows crash itself. No doubt there is much discussion over the engine block transmission being displaced, in the wrong direction, and the fire in advance of the gas tank blowing. I suppose all the metal wreckage has been melted down or crushed by now. Scary.

    Except for 1928 Porters, which are reputed to have very controlling maternal instincts.

    Never underestimate a 1958 Plymouth Fury.
