Vince and Larry, the famous dummies used for 25 years in test crashes for public service television ads, are finally getting a break from head-banging collisions.
The dummies headed to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History on Wednesday as part of a donation from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The collection will include several of Vince and Larry’s costumes and “severed limbs.”
Vince and Larry will be housed on the National Mall at the museum, which keeps items like Oscar the Grouch from “Sesame Street.”
General Motors and Volvo are also contributing to the auto safety donation, which includes a real GM crash-test dummy, a three-point safety belt from a 1961 Volvo and an energy-absorbing steering column from a 1967 Chevrolet.
