Fate?...Pieces Of The Past

We had something really amazing happen while reupholstering the seats in KARR. When we were taking the old fabric off we noticed the date stamped into the back of the material. It read 5 29 86 and it was 5/29/2016 the day we were working on them. Thirty years later to the day! Is that not awesome? I mean what are the odds!? 

I call it fate.

I knew that I wanted to save the Fiero badges off of the original seats, but I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them. Sara suggested sewing them onto some towels for the car. I chose a hand towel and a bath towel. I thought the bath towel would be perfect as a seat cover when taking KARR to the mechanic. I am not sure I could have found a better match for the old seat fabric.
