That's probably the lowest mileage and original one in existence, looks like it just came off the showroom floor!

One question though, how do those seatbelts work, why are they on the A pillar?

All I know it's an American thing. I think they called it Passive seatbelts. Is that right Skrilla? When you enter and close the door the thing moves up the A pillar an roof line. Did I get that right? I understand all US cars have this.

Ah ha, found it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seat_belt#Automatic
What a dumb invention, so part of it is automatic but you still have to put on a lapbelt to get full protection anyway...
Wacky Americans.

In the 80s the US govenment was all giddy about safety and so a few car companies had the electric seat belts,until people started complaining now nobody uses them lol.I think its a cool retro touch.

Yep, he solved his problem. Vacuum leak at the injectors because of the wrong type of o-ring.

Wow. Amazing how such a small oversight caused so much frustration for Bart. I'm glad the anguish is finally over.

Needless to say I'm looking for another.
