    vintage car seat pics?

    I was trying to find a picture of my daughters car seat from the late 80's. Do you know anywhere I might find that ?

    She is going to be 21 tomorrow. I can not believe it.

    Re: vintage car seat pics?

    You can find links to old seats here. I thihk that seats that have been discontinued for more than 10 years are no longer on the list, though. (Can't remember for sure.)

    I believe that member ClassicSeats also has an album of old car seats, which you may be able to see by viewing his profile.

    Plus a plethora of "spare" seats for everyone.

    Thanks!
    I found her seat. It was a Fisher price t shield seat. When I look at it now, I can not believe how scary it is that she was in that seat. Better than nothing at the time. but still...

    No, she gave it to me, thinking that I would use it. I didn't tell her otherwise, I didn't want them going to someone who would actually use them.

    Man! That is scary..

    I was in an accident in that seat. I was broadsided with a bronco. I was in a Toyota tercel. My dd had bad bruising and some scratches from flying glass and her seat shifted across the back..It was a middle lap belt install, but had she not been in one.. I can not imagine.

    However.. After the crash.. I think I still used it. I did not know not to. UGH!
