    Going to do houndstooth. Need help White or Black

    I plan on getting houndstooth insert seat covers. I just can't decide on the color of the seat I want. Should I go with white leather w/houndstooth inserts or black leather w/ houndstooth inserts. I have always wanted to put white seats in my car. But all the people I talk cars with say I should go with the black/houndstooth. Please give me your opinions. Also if anyone has pics of 4th gens with houndstooth please post them.(any color)
    Here is a pic of my car so you can see the theme I'm going for. BTY the car is HO if you can't tell in the pic.

    Do you drive the car a lot or does it sit. White would probably look nice but if you are going to be getting in and out a bunch then you probably want to go with black. My opinion is to go black but thats just what looks better to me. wear on white seats show quickly.

    I say make a poll, and go with black. But white would be original, so you'd get points either way.

    Yeah everyone likes black but the problem is if he puts black in there and he thinks it looks good but white would have looked better.... Then he will have to look at it everyday and say DAMN those guys on LS1.com... I am never going to that forum again... Next thing you know he starts searching for ip address's on us finds our homes... torches our cars... takes us hostage... lets us go in the woods and hunts us like wild animals with a AR....... OK might have went a little far there but you should go white if its what you want... But i still like black.

    yeah, I would do the white .... for "retro" effect .... and the fact that it is much Cooler in the summer. I have to put towels on my ebony seats to keep from burning my ass. That gets old.

    Well, if I don't want to take responsibility or my decision that would be a great idea.
    Thanks, for the input so far guys.

    Sorry, I am new to this. and when I used Yahoo to search .... I am not sure if I came up with that site or not, but being that is said "Third Generation" parts, I would not have even opened it up. Maybe they should change their name for us literal people.... LOL
    Seats look good though ! .... just not sure if I would spend $500 to change my car from Leather to Vinyl.

    If you think your seats come from the factory all leather you are crazy. Read the window sticker. It reads leather seating surface. And the leather GM uses isn't a very high quality(big surprise).
