    they're as comfortable as sitting on a wood bench, at least the sparco's that I sat on. I don't know what style they were, but a buddy had them in a eclipse.

    Don't mean to highjack your thread but maybe we could see if anybody has had any sort of replacement for for our seats not just racing seats. I remember a thread from a year ago or so about trying to put new GTO seats in an f-body to no avail. I was also curious if vette seats fit in an f-body.

    not to hijack either, but you would think a vette (also GM) would be interchangeable, especially if it's a 00-02 vette since almost everything else was used in the f-bodies.

    I got Corbeau Forza in my dsily driver... been in there for over a yr now and are not to bad, these seats do not go back at all from the factory they lean back 15 degrees (i think) driven the car on plenty of road trip and they really are not that bad once you get used to them, longest drive so far was 400+ miles and only stopped once to take a leak haha

    Yeah, they are freaking expensive. I found a few on ebay for very cheap (compared) and they came in any freaking color you wanted. I don't think they were leather though. and they were not 'great' looking, not cheap either, but not great, ya know. and then you have to kind of wonder how they'd take a wreck.

    yup i'm sure it can be done. but all the electrical controls wont be there i believe. and the seats wouldnt be able to flip up for rear seat access since the vette is a 2 seater.

    definitely still worth it though. just the dumb looks like 'WTF is that' you'd get would be worth all the work.
