That looks like a lot of fun. I'm planning to do my first one this year.

I'm building an 88 IROC with the intention of Autocrossing it. At the rate I'm going though, it might be a few years.

Your car looks awesome, how about some details on it?

Thank you, i had the car since 2008, and have been slowly working on it. The wheels are 18" staggered with hankook ventus summer tires (haven't bought slicks yet)
The suspension was redone, poly bushings; swaybars; shocks and springs with a 2" drop.
I just finished the interior with TMI's Deluxe Sport seats that i hope will help keep me in the seat. (i chose these so i can keep the traditional look). I also changed the steering wheel to a 14" billet wheel.
I will put a pic up of the seats.
To Do List?- Tubular control arms; subframe connectors; and quadra-link rear.

Here are the Seats i did for a "little" support.....because having only a lap belt isn't the greatest for autocrossing.

Just curious...are those the TMI seat covers and foam? I have been looking at making that purchase, now that I have my 69' on rails...the stock seat offers very little assistance in keeping me behind the wheel! If they are what do you think of them? Would you go that route again or go for an aftermarket seat...possibly buckets from a 98-2002 model camaro?

I think he already answered that.

Re: AutoCrossing in North East-

Would 3-point seat belts be out of the question? I know you want to keep the interior as original looking as possible, and it looks GREAT, but the belts (Morris) really won't look out of place, and coupled with your seats will be a lot more secure.
I'm itching to autocross but I'm lacking proper wheels\tires and shocks right now.

I have the Morris 3 point belts and they look and work great on the street (haven't auto-x'd them yet).

Sounds like it's time to add the right wheels/tires/shocks then.
