TOP SOURCE ANNOUNCES SIGNIFICANT NEW DEVELOPMENTS

 TOP SOURCE ANNOUNCES SIGNIFICANT NEW DEVELOPMENTS
 NEW YORK, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Top Source, Inc. (AMEX: TPS.EC)


has been approached and is engaged in serious discussion with several major companies inside and outside the automotive and automotive safety industry with regard to a strategic partnership to promote and implement the ARC (acceleration restraint curve) Safety Seat program.
 The latest seat design showed, in computer crash simulation tests using only an air bag, significantly reduced levels of injury to the head, chest and femur compared to the present restraint system without the ARC seat. In addition, the automakers could eliminate knee bolsters which would increase leg room and be well within federal passive restraint requirements for less cost.
 CEO Stuart Landow believes "the lower injury reduction scores in the upcoming SLED tests will convince automakers to commit to our technology as part of the required passive restraint system."
 The ARC technology, a controlled occupant seat motion upon frontal crash impact, prevents the occupant from "submarining" under the air bag into the vehicle's instrument panel. The SLED test, an automotive test method, uses a dummy and simulates frontal crashes, measuring the resulting injuries.
