Nah, keep it tan. It looks a lot better. Everybody has blk, or dark!

X2, tan is kind of rare on an SS. I would die to find a burgundy SS with tan interior.

I wouldn't call it rare in the sense of '60s special muscle car rare but it IS less common. I'd definitely keep it.

If you do decide to redo it, splurge and get the PUI seat covers and upper door panels and rear inserts. Definitely worth the extra cost for the extra quality.

It's THE least common interior colour, and IMHO, the best looking interior colour. I'd definitely leave it alone. Heck, I even prefer the manual locks/windows smile

If you look around here, you can probably find somebody that will trade you they're colored interior for yours, just an honest thought, because yes tan is a bit more on the "harder to come by" colors list


I remember the days that cars were lowered and trucks were lifted

I redid my interior with PUI pieces from Mike's and couldn't be happier. I have it documented on my web site:

I can't recall.. I think it was around $1,000 with carpet, new seat belt webbing, paint and other pieces added in.. But that was a few years ago and that's also Canadian coins. I'm sure Mike would have no problem giving you a quote though.
