There have been more cars built with "Bomber Seats" in the last 4 years than through all of the 40's and 50's. Guys "out west" used em mostly because thats where the airplane junk yards were. Get a couple of them for $4 or $5 because nobody wanted them. Later on they became slightly more popular when certain timing associations cleared them as safe for raceing. Two for a grand? Most old hot rodders would have been laughing just as hard as I am now. If you think they're cool now just wait till you sit on one on a 30 degree morning. In 3 or 4 years these things won't be cool any where except at the nurseing home. My opinion, your mileage may vary.
