Accepting (as I think most TR3 owners do) that these cars are not
partcularly crash-worthy, I have pondered the wisdom of a shoulder
belt. In particular I think about that spear-point of a steering column
that might come my way in a collison.
You mention inertia-belts but in my experience those can be sensitive
enough to lock you in place as you reach for an item in the glove box...
could keep you upright when you'd rather not be. For now I prefer just
the lap belt to keep me with the car but perhaps still have a chance to
dive to the right in a collison or roll-over.
