I just bought a 1972 Fiat 500 but it has no seat belts in the rear seats. I had hoped to take my 2 year old son with me but I'm concerned that 1. The rear seat can not have seat belts installed that meet safety standards. 2. the toddler car seat won't fit. Does anyone have and advice? Thx.

I'm not sure of the safety standards you speak of but seat belt mounts can be installed. I don't know how big your infant seat is, if it does not fit with the back seat in, you can remove the back seat and mount it on the floor.

I call my 1964 "Deathwish" when I take it out. I would not put children in it because I don't think the car is safe enough.
