Hello,

I am looking for photos of vintage racing seats used in Aircooled VW's ... the more interesting, designs, the better.
Also, the seat belt's that goes with them.

Thanks in advance.

How about bomber seats? Speedway motors sells a nice one, with and with out lighting holes and I think they have a cover for them.

kjells - I LOVE the seats in the last link ! Very Happy

That's what I am talking about ... vintage "home brew" seats ! ... of course, ones that were manufactured by tuning firms, are also welcomed.
