    • Morris Seat Belts: Invest in your Safety


      First of all, let me begin by saying that I am in no way, shape, or form affiliated with Morris seat belts, and they do not pay me anything.

      One month ago to this date I was involved in a very serious collision in my beloved 1968 Camaro which resulted in a total loss.

      If you would like to read more about the collision, it can be found here, about halfway down the page, it is a long post:

      Anyways, I would just like to tell everyone here in the pro-touring and muscle car community that you NEED to invest in your safety, for your own sake and for the sake of your loved ones. Do not skimp on a set of GOOD seat belts because you want to save $50, because that can be the difference between life and death, literally. Before you think of buying that brand new carburetor or those shiny beautiful headers, invest in your life.

      When I first installed Morris seat belts in my car two years ago, I never thought I would end up fighting for my life because of my car. Yes they are pricey, and yes they may be a bit sensitive when you pull them to buckle up, but they are QUALITY. Should price even matter when your life is in question?

      These seatbelts withstood the force of colliding with a concrete wall at 80mph, and saved both mine and my passenger's life.

      Upon impact, their sensitive lock mechanisms instantly held the belts in place, rather than slipping like some cheaper, or less sensitive, belts. My passenger withstood zero injuries to the face, head, neck, or core, in fact he walked away from the accident; these belts held him tight and kept him well away from the dash or the side window.

      As far as me, well those sensitive lock mechanisms saved me from a major face and head trauma. The hood entered the car through the windshield and broke my nose in multiple places and also left a hairline fracture under my right eye. Had those seat-belts stopped me a millisecond later, aka an inch closer to the front of the car, the hood would have impaled my skull and destroyed my eye leaving me brain-dead and/or blind. But they didn't, they instantly locked and kept my head far back from the dash, turning the hood hitting me into just a flesh-wound.

      Here's some pictures...you want to survive a collision in one of these rockets? Then getting a QUALITY set of belts such as the ones I used from Morris Classic/Customs is a must, trust me I would know:

      LSA Setup

      I bought all these parts to do an LSA swap into my 64' Chevelle. We decided to change the theme of the car and will be using a Lokar Fuelie kit instead.
