Back when I had my first 60 TR3A during my undergraduate days
(mid-sixties), a frat brother who also had a TR3A rear ended someone
(sans seat belt) while he was only doing 25-30 MPH on a crowded city
street. He flew up out of the seat & chrome top of the wind screen
right at the bridge of his nose. It broke his nose in addition to
the big gash the flange dug into his face.
I have a lap belt to keep my face away from the top of the
windscreen, but now I am thinking about that fixed steering wheel
with that big hard turn signal which right in the middle.
I assume from your description I assume you have a non inertial type?
