Seats appear "puffy".
My 68 Charger was never like that, nor my Daytona.

Is this a function of the repop seat material or the repop foam padding?

There is a video of them driving it and unloading it on their company Facebook page.

Could be.. Have to be new covers for I see both of the buttons on the bottom passenger seat missing. That's why when I replace my seat covers I'm using the original buttons... And did not C500's, get the 68 version of the auto-shifter knob?

Yeah, the seats look like grannies old puffy sofa!   I'd assume repop seat material is thinner, letting the foam really pop !!!

Good looking car, I like it. seems to be reasonably well done.

So, whats a REAL world realistic selling price in todays market. Obviously $90 k, but can or will they make money on it ?
