It's this way:
If you get smacked in the front in an early Vair hard enough for that
steering shaft to become an issue, there's gonna be a lot of other things
happening that are likely to have already made your day a really bad one
long before the shaft pops up to say hello. I've seen Vairs take
thunderous shots to the front and buckle the car, and still not push the
shaft into the interior.
...kinda makes one wonder about "crumple zones"...
