Bah...
If I had em you could have them.  When I drive an airbag equipped car, I
feel like I am sitting with my face about 2 feet fromt he barrel of a
cannon.  One of the reasons I dont like them as well is I drive with my
arm on top of the wheel at 12 o'clock.  if that thing goes off I'm going
to wack the daylights out of myself!
Airbags? I say screw em.  Racing bodies are very stringent of safety
equipment, and much of the equipment cost hundred or thousands of dollars.
I have yet to see them require airbags.  IMHO, airbags are a selling
point, one.  Secondly, they are for people that are too stupid to put a
seat belt on.

Don't lose that Win98 CD.  you're gonna need it.  Might want to burn some
copies to keep as spares for when the original wears out from use.
