My grandfather installed seat belts in my Buick back in the day - they're original Boeing seat belts and when you pull the flap up, it has the old 50s or 60s B on it. When I have people in the car, such as giving people rides home after work or even getting a bite with a bud during lunch break at school, I'm often asked why I don't wear it. The truth is, you're going to die no matter what happens in any type of collision in one of these old cars unless it's from the passenger side or rear. In any case, lap belts won't help you from hitting the steering wheel or side window. Just an unfortunate realization compared to modern safety requirements: airbags, over the shoulder restraints, crumple zones. Drive carefully! We probably have more to worry about other idiots on the road than ourselves anyways.

That's what we call a dusting. Interesting that now I know what shut down head office in John's Creek, GA (I forget if they shut down early or closed altogether on Friday). Not that people up here are necessarily better about winter driving, but we do have to get used to it. 

 

Some nice artistic shots MrEarl.

Nice, but shouldn't those be in "Winter Buicks" MrEarl?

Wow!  I agree, really bad and at a bad time of the year (not that there's a good time for a dam break).  I couldn't resist noting the irony of this self-captioned photo, however...

Caption says " looks like a Pontiac engine behind a Buick going down the line."

Well it's not a Buick engine - the distributor is in the back of the block instead of in the front cover.  Probably an assembly plant where Buicks and Pontiacs shared a line. Here in my area the Fairfax assembly plant in Kansas City, Kansas runs the Buick LaCrosse and the Chevrolet Malibu down the same line at the same time..

There's an Oldsmobile in front of the Buick besides.

True, but the seat belt will keep you from being ejected in a rollover.  You can probably come up with an equation to explain why ejected occupants are rolled on by the car they are ejected from.:o

Well I'd hope I wouldn't get into a roll over, or any collision for that matter. I don't race the car, but I guess you can never be too sure with Honda hot rods.
