    well... just did a google search and i found this...... never knew it....lol

    "The first American vehicle to use a timing belt was the 1966 Pontiac Tempest. The Vauxhall Slant Four was the first production overhead cam four cylinder design to use a timing belt, a configuration that is now used in the vast majority of cars built today."
