Scans 002 (R Seats)

 

One part of a car build that probably doesn’t get enough attention given to them is seat’s, from a safety stand point and visual too, a seat can make a world of difference. I figured I’d share a set of scans showcasing some seat options from an old Racing On mag (Can’t remember which one, but its from around mid 80’s) plus a few other scans related to Seats/Safety.

Really interesting to see the TRD’s coming in various colours, the grey coloured ones seem to be the only ones you see. Cool to see the range of EVA seats too, the Motul Civic ran a IMSA-R throughout its racing career.

I really hope I can find some AUTOLOOK catalogs soon, crazy to see how much the prices are jumping on their pedal sets and seats, the seats seem to be regularly listed for over 40k yen and always seem to get bidded on, they do look seriously cool though so it’s understandable.

Who on earth decided that ASS would be a good name for a automotive tuning company..

I do love the look of that older blue Sparco and Tom’s seat. Interesting to see what looks like a Quattro Sports seat being sold by Majolca??

I’ve got a few other sets of images like the ones above that I’ll be sharing soon. Here’s another handful of related Seat/Harness adverts I’ve come across too. I love the simplicity of the TAKATA advert especially.

I’m not sure what the next set will be on, potentially a look at CABIN cigarettes and their racing teams.
