    Got my ride on the street. One problem I cant fit my little girls car seat in the backseat.
    I would really like to take her for a ride in the car.
    She is 7 months old.
    Anyone with exp. on a brand (carseat) I can buy to fit in the car.

    Man its a tight squeez getting a child seat in the back. The only thing you can do is put her on the passenger side and let the front seat up all the way, i know it sucks for the passenger. Also you dont wanna take shortcuts like turning her seat sideways...that wouldnt be good if an accident happened.....It also doesnt get betta when she starts growing.

    My wife pulls passenger seat all the way forward also. She has a 95GT. Grandaughters feet still hit back of the seat tho.

    Front facing seats are a bit better but when kids start to grow their little legs will be too long. My son didnt like that at all :rant:

    Ya, I think it would be fun to go out for a ride.
    I was the most unprepared parent. My wife drives a Cobalt coupe and my other car is a S10 ext cab.
    I need a bigger ride bad.

    Not me, when your alone nobody tells you to slow down or turn down the radio etc etc...plus you have to take it easy with others in the car...so i value the alone time in the Mustang.

    This is what i do and my 3 yr old fits fine. BUT my exhaust scares her so she doesn't ride in it much.

    i was in your shoes too i had a lifted 95 f150 extended cab and never gave it two thoughts about putting a car seat back there until we bought one then i was in a panic rush to get rid of that (my dd) and get another truck that was large enough to fit a car seat in the back so i sold it and got a 01 extended cab z71 its huge with the two suicide doors wayyy bigger than my f150 but its still a bowtie :( if i could have afforded to get a 4 door ford i would have but they seem to be expensive and the chevys are affordable in the extended models and are huge inside sooo i had to deal with it...

    I have a two yr old boy who loves to ride in it. I have to put the pass seat most
    of the way forward and put him behind it. No room in the backseat of a vert :mad:

    thats a booster seat...meaning front facing only...you cant put a child in a front facing seat till hes 20lbs and at least 1 year old....but once he does turn 1 i would like to get that :dancing6:

    for rear facing i use a graco seat...its pretty compact and seams to be one of the smaller ones....britex are nice but pricy and larger

    if you are looking for a new car seat i would get a convertable car seat...meaning it can face rear and then convert to front facing....that way you dont waste money on another rear facing seat that you will only use for 3 more months
