Re: [FWDLK] seat belt question


In Minnesota, seat belts are not required in cars made before they were required by Federal law in new cars, sometime back in the 60s. The only exception, I think, is children require seay belts or car seats. I don't think an exception was thought of when the child seat belt laws were created.

I bought a nice set of seat belts from J.C. Whitney. They have several lenghts and colors, and the buckel even looks vintage with a smooth chrome surface.
