Default Car seat question

Hey, y'all, I recently picked up a decent computer chair, and, I thuoght I'd seen a post somewhere about this, but, I'm wanting to replace the craptastic chair with a seat from a late-model GM car. In other words, what type of seat would be a good choice to use? Would something out an early 90'* J-body work? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

Whatever you feel comfortable in. And it probably doesn't matter what make it comes from. Its still going to be a custom job mounting it to the chair thingy.

While using a car chair will give you the "cool" factor, its not advisable. I'd recommend spending a chunk and getting a proper computer chair.

I've seen it done somewhere, where someone used a seat from an early 90'* J-body, and, made it work nicely...

I remember seeing this post with the seat from a Sunbird, I think that would work great!
