+1330 – Is this sticker from the 90’s? Probably not. Is the memory of staring at it while being driven everywhere from the 90’s? Absolutely.

  1. Reminds me of my mom’s 1988 Chevy Celebrity. She’d go to drive us somewhere and it would smell like stale cigars from my stepdad. Also he’d leave the radio on a fuzzy AM station from listening to baseball games.

  2. My dads Mercury Topaz had this sticker in the window and these exact seatbelts that where chrome plated, you would get in during the summer and the seatbelts would burn your leg if you were wearing shorts, buckling up would also cause you to burn your fingers… Good times.

  3. Late 80s… that’s when wearing seat belts became the law.

    I can almost feel my 12 year old self desperately trying to roll the damn window down with that confounded window handle before I boiled to death after getting in the car after a day at the pool

  5. I can hear this sticker…”have you driven a Fooooooorddddd……lately!!!!!”

  6. I would bet it’s more likely from the 80s

  7. It’s the little things.

    You’re right!

    Unlocked a memory of driving in my late grandpa’s car on the way home from school. Thanks for the smile.

  10. I specifically remember peeling this sticker off one day and the smell of the adhesive was absolutely so stanky

    Holy smokes, I’d completely forgotten about that sticker until I saw this post! 😃I also must have stared at it for years in the 90s, until my dad sold his powder blue car (can’t recall the model, but I do remember the color-I loved the old cartoon *Susie the Little Blue Coupe* that would sometimes play on the Disney Channel in the early mornings, and so I was particularly fond of my dad’s little blue car 😊🚙💕) and inherited my grandmother’s car shortly after she moved into elder care (can’t recall if her car also had the sticker).

    I think this is a great sticker to have on a car window (not that the mishmash collages of various Disney/Hello Kitty/Barbie stickers that my younger siblings used to decorate the middle windows of my mom & stepdad’s minivan with weren’t also fun! 😄)-starting the very day I was brought home from the hospital (according to them), my parents made sure I was taught that seat belts were absolutely non-negotiable when I rode in *any* car. If I ever rebelled against that rule (although they told me I never really did), then too bad; until I thought better of it & buckled up (or allowed myself to be), the car simply did.not.move. I don’t think I even realized that cars can totally start up even if not all passengers are strapped in until I was 8 years old and at a friend’s house 😂

  12. Staring at this sticker while you pick at the melted crayon in the back seat of a wood paneled Dodge Caravan.

  13. I feel like my first car, a 1990 Ford Escort, had one.

    I swear every single Ford model I ever came across as a kid had that sticker. I could also tell a Ford/Mercury/Lincoln apart from a GM vehicle just by looking at the door handles, seat belt buckles, steering wheel shape, ignition switch, and/or brand of glass used in the windows.

  15. Ironic because when seatbelts were introduced to the public most car manufacturers refused to include them. It wasn’t until the early 1980’s that New York was the first state to make it mandatory. Few people used seatbelts and in the 80’s it was said only 15% of drivers even put them on.

    Car manufacturers were known to hire lawyers and other shady people to discredit the validity of seatbelts to save on costs.

    Seatbelts were first designed in the late 1800’s and the three point seatbelt was free to use from Volkswagen for any manufacturer to adopt in the mid 70’s.

    Even then, people fought back and refused to use them. Look up “America’s war on seatbelts”.

  16. It’s probably from at least the early 80s when most seat belt laws were first passed.

  17. This sticker brings me back some instant nostalgia as well!

  18. Late 80’s and early 90’s from the Ford company originally….

  19. Wow…Yet another post that has opened up memory banks I didn’t know were closed.

  20. Pale Blue ‘92 Ford Taurus

    Will see this sticker at my life recap at death

  21. I see this sticker and immediately feel the 2nd degree burns on the back of my thighs from the hot molten vinyl seats.

  22. OK car inspection

  23. This was on my family’s ’88 Econoline van. I clearly remember it as I was just learning to read.

    I remember my dad’s 1993 F-150 had this sticker!

    The seatbelts inside the truck looked the same as inches sticker too!

  26. Body by Fisher!

  27. 80s and early 90s

  28. My mom had it on her ’89 f150 also it was in my dad’s ’88 bronco

  29. Oh woooooow!! This takes me back! My grandmother’s mid-80’s Ford Escort has these in the windows. What an awful car that was. She traded it in for a Toyota Tercel, and my whole family has been buying Toyotas ever since.

  30. I remember this from my moms ford escort!

  31. Had this in our 96 Ford Aerostar. God this sub brings back the nostalgia

  32. 80s!!!! My moms 83 Plymouth. duster had one. I remember staring out of the back port window and seeing it on the bottom

  33. This just put me back into my mom’s silver two door 1988 Ford Escort.

  34. daaang, you just flooded my head w memories riding around my dads 1995 Ford Explorer

  35. In a red Ford Probe. Totally remember that sticker. Reminds me of falling asleep in the backseat while my parents talk in the front.

  36. I can confirm that this sticker was in fact on my 1996 F-150, which I only finally scrapped three years ago.

  37. Had that on my dads 1984 ford escort. Goid times…pushing it

  38. Should have a Volvo emblem on it. They’re the ones responsible for designing the 3-point seatbelt and then doling the patent out to the entire industry, license and royalty free; saving millions of lives.
