Got that beat. My parents had only a pickup truck with a camper top on it. We rode in back on a bed made of plywood. On cross country trips. Seatbelts? hehe, at least you had seats.
When I was going to summer day camp, they'd pack 8 or 10 kids in the back of a station wagon with the rear seat folded down. We sat cross-legged on the bare metal floor. Seatbelts? Hell, no seats!

Nowadays we're afraid to let our kids walk two blocks to school. Ridiculous.
