This being a ’90 and a fairly inexpensive car to begin with, there are no airbags. The restraint system is instead comprised of door-mounted seatbelts that you could theoretically leave buckled and just limbo in under and then close the door.

A strange choice for a car, but then plastics and Alfa Romeos have a way of meeting up every once in a while. … [Read more...] about How Alfa Romeo Waved Goodbye to Rear-Wheel Drive
