    I've tossed the original seats, the seat backs were bent, crooked, rusted and just plain junk and werent worth rebuilding, I did save the racks from them that bolt to the floor. I have 92 seats and they fit like crap, too high in the front part and i'm not a huge fan of them, basically i shouldnt have bought them. What aftermarket seats are comfy, fit great and look decent. Black is my color of choice. Pictures would help. thanks This is for a 79.

    It all depends on what you want to spend on seats. I have Cobeau`s in my Camaro But Recaros are nice as well. You can also check the wrecking yards and swap meets as well. Good luck on your search.

    I went with these. They also offer the specific mounting brackets for our cars. They do sit higher than the original seats, but it doesn't bother me (I'm 5'11). Construction is very sturdy. As for comfort, they seem comfortable enough, and they keep you planted during "spirited" driving. I wouldn't hesitate to take a long trip in them, but like anything else, they're probably on par with the price. I'm sure a $1000 seat will be more comfortable.

    I put 2011 civic lx-s seats and they look great and fit well
    They recline and I got them for about 200 for front and rear
    Yes you'll have to find some pre owned ones or you can try some bmw seats
    I've seen those on a few camaro and they look bad ass!!
