I think these thing would be sweet bolted in an sc. T-bird seat feels like it weighs 100 pounds.http://www.raceskinz.us.com/product_info.php?products_id=90?osCsid=6a55d74bb7f 3e49288af480b4d28ae9b

More like 55 pounds each. Those Shelby seats appear to be rebadged Cobra Misanos, and Mr. Shelby has only added $1,000 to the price for the privilege of having his name stitched on your seats.

Hell, I paid less than this for my Recaro Cobra Rs. Quite a bit less.

Edited to add: These won't save as much weight as you think. The carbon backing is just for decoration; it's tough to make a reclining seat light. My Recaros only shave 13 pounds per seat, and if you want true lightweight seats (under 25 pounds/each) you'll really need a fixed-back race seat.
