Scat/Procar series 1100. Very comfortable but the only problem was the seat tracks they send you are not correct. I called customer service at Procar and they said they are correct. Anyway I removed my tracks off my split bench and mounted them on the procar seats. Now my knees are not in the dash board. They are 285 each from Summit.

This pic is from about 2002. I believe he still has the other Torino and Ranchero. Maybe you guys in Anaheim have seen them around.
