I just came back from PEP Boys and they are selling 3P Race seats from 150-200 ea. They are adjustable and really great. I will be buying a set.
They come in colors in cloth and vinyl and a leather look.

Search 3P Race seats and you will see what they look like.

I ran that search about a half dozen different ways, and it turned up nada.

Is 3P the name of the seat? Or is it a 3 Point race seat. I can't locate the info on pep boys site.

I gave you PEP Boys name because they are in a lot of areas. On the net go to www.autoaccessorystore.com then interior then seats. The black one in the middle is the nicest at $199 but the others are nice too. I just don't like the colors.

I hope this helps

Thanks.
The red and blue look ok but the yellow looks dirty already, maybe it's just the picture.

The black one looks very nice. I'm not one for matching colours, just don't have the touch for it. Give me black with a red interior or vise versa and I'm happy.

I'll just stick to Corbeau Forzas, since they're only $220 each, and they're considerably lighter, I'd imagine.

Pep Boys seats are adjustable. I have a MOMO race seat that is not adjustable and really not to my liking although I have used it. For long drives it is not that comfortable.

The yellow looks dirty already Niel noway you cant something looks dirty when its not and if you keep it clean itll be clean Im sure itsa nice yellow..
you just lik the red dont you. Did you have to order the seats
If I bought a seat for me ited be the carbeau although or just because Im not gonna buy a cheap seat that will fall apart and if it looks under stuffed or has loose material right away ... so Vinces look good just have to wonder on the quality. seems vince should wake up and get the carbeaus doesnt it..or is it just me and am I being to harsh on him did he ask if he saw the seats ..Im goin out today Ill check if there a pep boys close ..I dont think so.
anyway I have to get some tennis or outdoor boots from the big5 store

One of my boss's sells Corbuea seats, He wants to give me a set of CR-1's for work. I may take him up on it, anyways, while at the office we only have corbuea seats to sit in, iv been suprised by the comfort and build quality of there line up, for a budget id get the forza's and if you can afford them the TRs (?) or Cr1's are both very nice.. You racing guys might get a kick out of what he makes: the 'ultimate' in virtual racing simulation (www.virtualracerx.com)

My step son tried these in his '68 charger, and after a year, took them out. They were just too damn uncomfortable.

I've got ones almost exactly like the ones above, they rock! Even my girlfriend the skeptic likes them and thinks they were worth it.7
