I have two kids, both in car seats. Not sure what brands without going outside to look, but I always make sure that the rear strap (?) that prevents excessive forward motion is attached to something, ANYTHING. I feel very comfortable with my sons in my car as long as the side to side and forward motion is limited.

Hi Greg,
After owning a 05 GT,and a 07 ford focus,one really appreciates what one had.I won't get into details with you yet,it's still pretty "raw",but i've been thru hell since i left here,in just about every aspect of life,fought thru some serious stuff,prevailed and am stronger for it,still sad about certain things...Nuf riddles for ya.lol
Staying away from DC was nothing personal,just can't elaborate on this at this point.Glad to see the DC family going strong,i peeped in every once in a while.Actually helped keep me motivated in a certain way.
I see it took you guy's finding a bunch of new mods to replace me :laughing: ...j/k..
I don't get my money until the end of May,but i'm really itching to get a nice c4.Thanks for taking the time to reply to me when i was making some brief posts in the last year,it meant alot..
Some folks over here know what i was going thru,and i really found out who my friends are..Kalani and Tim (Toolman) are awesome friends...If Tim sells his 87 vert,i'm going to try to talk him into selling me his supercharger.
So obviously by this topic,i had a healthy baby boy..."Alex"..
Thanks for saying hi bro..The company i'm going to work for is sending me to Alabama for school in the near future,i'll try to make a few stops out of this trip if i can.

Yah, I missed grabbing gears, so I traded it in for a 6 speed z51 manual! Just a tune so far. I'm trying to get pics of it loaded up.

Thanks,and thanks for the input,a picture is worth a 1000 words...cute one's,even better..I've got people telling me a child seat in a vette is illegal,(even without the air bag).And of coarse the people saying this have never even owned a vette.

That's hilarous. That is the same thing my daughter says. Sometimes I take it when I go bowling or somewhere by myself and she stands in the window and tells mommy, "No fair, Daddy gets to take the cool car.":laughing:
