slightly left field, but if you have ever seen a car that has suffered a front quarter smash, chances are you will see the headlamp hanging out by its wires, the metal work which used to hold it in place all bent and twisted, but the headlamp itself (made of polycarbonate) physically intact.

OK, I know the bodywork is designed to crumple in a crash to absorb the impact, but I am always impressed how the headlamps, right up there in the action, usually survive.
