My dad drove, oldest brother next to him, middle brother next to him, then my mom.. and I was on the floor... I SAT ON THE FLOOR! lol forget not having a seat belt I didn't even have a seat!

      And here we are.. buying a new-to-us vehicle because of 2 cars and 4 trucks, nothing is to the standards that we have been taught are safest.
