Default Look who pulled up

My girlfriend drove her parents car over today because her 91 Blazer is having some issues. Snapped a few quick shots from inside the house. They keep talking about selling it and if they do I'm going to try and snag the wheels first

Well I got to drive it a bit today (my second time) and, no offense to the 00+ owners, but what happened with the seats in the new models?! Felt like I was sitting on a wood board...

Also I am surprised at the lack of headroom. Even with the seat all the way down my hair was hitting the roof. Overall I think I like the exterior look of the 00+ models a little better than my 98, but the interior the 92-99 is light years ahead of the 00+, imo.

^^^Definately. I've driven my friends mom'* '00, just no where near as comfortable as my '96. The 00+ have a much more aggressive look to them though.

I'm comfortable in the seats in my 01 but I totally agree with the issue of headroom. I believe in the 03+ the seats are different.

I totally agree with you. Not sure what happened in my '04 vs my '95. Seats are stiffer (seems to be the case with all newer cars) and my hair does touch the ceiling!

Never knew sunroofs took that much room. I wonder why they switched the seats in 03 as well.

Thats what I've been sayin for a long time. My car has the same style seats, but they are a bit softer. Oh and being 5'-8" I've never experienced headroom problems :P
