    I scored them off a guy that claims they came from a vintage porsche. I have know idea but they look correct. Low back buckets and they are super light. As for money....No i have a little from selling my 56 , but im running out fast.

    Those seats are pretty cool though...I almost thought they were some kind of vintage aircraft seat at first.
    I bet they're light as a feather too:)
    Any luck on that intake yet?

  29. That's some fast work, very cool.

    Henry Js shoulda come from the factory as Gassers, they just fit the Gasser thing perfectly.
