1.6 MILLION CAMAROS, FIREBIRDS BEING RECALLED

General Motors Corp. is recalling all 1.6 million 1984-90 Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird cars because of possible seat belt defects.

The company said ultraviolet solar rays could weaken the seat-belt buckles' red-colored release buttons. The latching mechanism then may not hold the seat belt in place, which could make the safety device inoperative.
