Yes, it is a bit of overkill. a jointed column is really all you would need. How bad would it have to be to need the telescoping joint? I've read accounts of accidents in the straight collumn days where wheels would be pushed straight to the chest, and the collumn being pushed straight through the wheel and spearing the driver, sometimes continuing through and spearing the rear passenger as well. I love and own the old cars, but I'd rather get into an accident in a newer one if I had a choice.Come to think of it, it would be very easy for me to add a joint and still retain the original columns. I think I'll look into it!!
