Long story short: if you had a mercedes, bmw, porsche, ferrari, jag, etc back in the day, these were the highest model seat you could buy.
long story long:
24 hours ago i spotted these recaro classics on craigslist. listing said “do not text, only call. if you call i will pick up, early or late.” i set a 7:45 alarm and gave the seller a call. the person on the other end of the line said “sorry, but i’m not selling seats. i’ve gotten a few calls and i think the seller typed their number in wrong.” i apologized and got down on myself. no email address or anything in the listing. all day at work all i could think about was “how am i going to get to these recaros before everyone else? or how do i even find the owner?” i got home from work and i searched first name and the beginning of the listed phone number. the seller’s business popped right up and i gave him a call.
immediately went to look at the seats and struck a deal. they’ve been reupholstered, but with a little work will be presentable for a few years. apparently he started high and no one ever called him. no clue why 🙃. the deals are still out there folks, you just have to do some of the work yourself!
so excited to finally own a set of one of my favorite car parts of all time.
