No doubt a lot of parents could have been arrested in the 1950s and 1960s for letting their children ride in the back of their two-seater Corvettes.

I remember one person writing on one of the forums about bolting a car seat in the back of his C2 Corvette to allow his kids to enjoy the car back in the day. I’m sure others didn’t go that far and just let their kids ride in the big area behind the seats in their 1963-67 Sting Rays.
