The technical process that made Corvettes lighter, stronger, and better side impact crash testing.. 1992

Hydro forming, it uses 7000 psi water to bend steel, and when you don't heat steel, you don't lose strength. So by using cold water, they were able to use thinner side rails to increase interior room, and make getting in and out of the Vette easier.
