There was a definite 'learning curve' in child safety seats.

We would NEVER do that when I was a kid in the 60s........we just held them in our laps in the back of the pickup.  True story.

Alright dead, bring those wood blocks over and stack them on the pedals.  We should be good to go!  You can drink and I'll drive!

I remember my dad talking about like 8 people piling into my grandfathers old pickup and going to town, 4 in the front and 4 in the bed!

I am old enough to remember the first car that my dad bought that actually had seatbelts (and one or two before that that didn't). No car seats, no bike helmets and yet somehow most of us survived.

My moms right arm was my seatbelt while I stood beside her in the '66 Chevelle Malibu.

I am not that old and clearly remember riding all over the place setting on the back of dad's old flatbed truck and my feet would hit the ground in the big bumps, used to be the coolest thing in the world. Miracle I never fell of, and like others said I survived no worse for wear

My favorite spot in the 79 Buick wagon my parents had was the rear seat (bouncing up and down of course!)
