    Default Installing Recaro seats in my SIlhouette...

    One done so far...

    I know it's dirty! So is the rest of the van...



    I paid $35 for a pair of these tan Recaro seats from a 1997 Chevy Lumina 9C3 cop car.

    Looks like they fit pretty darn well. And heck, cloth seats that are a little dirty probably beat the crap out of leather seats in the Texas sun.

    If you put racing seats in an Oldsmobile minivan, yooouuuuu might be a redneck!

    I'd rather drive a cobbled together rustbucket Ford than a brand new Chrysler anyday.

    Looks good, been wanting to find a set of those tan Recaros for my '98 Lumina LTZ. Hard to find 'em in tan, most were blue.

    What would a Lumina 9C3 be doing with Recaros?

    9C3 is one of the police packages, the other being 9C1. They have those sport buckets instead of the standard bench seat up front. They also have a vinyl rear seat and rubberized floors for easy clean-up. I don't recall which is which, but one designation is for marked patrol cars, and the other is for unmarked detective cars.
