Safety first

Cool discussion of kid car seats in ye olden days on Metafilter.

My oldest brother was born in 1944 (!) and my mom insists she had some kind of weird prehistoric carseat even for him.

But by the 1970s we were all rolling around like pop cans in the Country Squire station wagon. And now of course you have to be in a booster seat until you're 25.

I personally feel lucky to be alive. In the 70s I always rode in the way-back of my mom's Pinto Wagon!
