Was the bigger shield the thing of the '80s with car seat manufacturers? Our 1985 Century also had a pretty good sized shield from what I remember of it.
Sweet! , even if it's a bit small ;P ... vintage car seats are awesome.
My first memorable AB experiance involved my old 70 something car seat ... looked very similar to that one in your picture.
damn, they really need to make an AB friendly version! This seat looks stylish enough to be part of someones lounge set.
