I bought a seat a few weeks ago and found it difficult to work out who made it and what it was called but I found it after a lot of reading on this site in the fantastic archives. There is a seat archive section on the site but it is far from exhaustive (this is not a criticism as it’s difficult to cover everything and I’m sure it take huge time) so therefore I am proposing the forum members contribute with seat pic’s and details to make it more complete and if successful other topic can be generated for other items. So anyway this is the seat I bought is a Corbeau GT3 seat. (P.S I’ve found a handy way to reduce the size of a pic to post here which might help, send it to yourself on Facebook Messenger and then save it and then it’s small enough to post here)

Haha. That ad has answered the question of "what is this seat" quite a number of times. The Rallye 5 being the most common answer, it seems.

Hey Nev! Hope all is well. Been a long time!

I'm not. In fact it has been going the other way. We had one of my colleagues over from the Dublin office for a few months.

The seat section was something I started ages ago in the hope that folks would send me pics and descriptions to add. The few usual suspects did help & then contributions dried up.

Any submissions of a decent picture or two along with a confirmed name will be added to the archive, but without contributions, it won't grow.

The trouble with a seat archive is that apart from the seats fitted by BMC/BL/Rover and the overseas factory fittings, where do the other variations start - and stop? What constitutes a mini seat? Is it a universal one-size-fits-all universal seat from an accessory supplier ? Or is it a mini seat worthy of the archive when it has a min fitting bracket attached, or what.....?

A bit like a steering wheel archive really. A zillion universal seats that will fit the same number of universal adaptor brackets and then it's a mini seat. Nope, I don't understand it either. Steel helmet on waiting some incoming flak

You are making the whole thing more complicated than it needs to be Peter.

The archive can have examples of ANY seat that was or could be fitted in period. i.e. Up until about 1970. These archives are primarily a way of people identifying what seat they have & a lot of people find them very useful. Same applies to the steering wheel archive.

Shame they don't get more submissions.
