Re: The 50th anniversary of the 3 pt seat belt (JRL)

Here's an interesting question on the CMSHG chat forum:<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote"> I have no doubt that Volvo produced the first three point belt, but does anyone remember a Volvo Two point belt…?<p> <p>My 1959 544 had a diagonal chest belt, from the drivers side pillar across to the hook on the tunnel. I added a standard lap belt, as I suspected a sudden stop might slide me under the chest belt… (sadly, I tested the belt system, by hitting a sizable rock, during an autocross…)<p> <p>Darryl<br></TD></TR></TABLE><p>BTW, the autocross he mentioned was a <B>real</B> autocross held in places such as friendly farmer's fields and such, not the sissy pavement "autocross" we have these days. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">
