    Downsizing soon from a van

    We have an 03 Odyssey, and only two kids. We drive a lot, and cart a lot of stuff. We also have an old dog who rides down low in the back hatch with the 3rd row up to contain her.

    Interesting lap/shoulder belt type

    My husband just bought a 1973 Mustang Grande. I haven't seen the car yet but here's a picture out of the manual of how to use and adjust the front seat's lap/shoulder belt. It sounds to me like the lap belt is ALR and the shoulder belt that attaches on is some sort of locking latch plate.
