Default Strange request: Want to test fit a baby seat in a GC8 coupe

I'm seriously considering a GC8--WRX conversion and have been looking for a GC8 sedan, with little luck. I have an 18-month old and this is mostly why I want the sedan. Seeing how tough it is to find a sedan, I may have to go the coupe route. Sooooo, anyone have a GC coupe in the Sac area that I could test fit a baby seat in? It would only take maybe 15 minutes or so.

Help a brutha out. Thanks!

Chris

IMO, I would just get a sedan. 4 doors is one reason I got my WRX. I gave up my Integra coupe (purchased new and modded) after I got tired of flipping the front seat forward while it was raining and manuvering my daughter into the back seat. It really starts to become a hassle (remember that properly adjusting those baby seats in a car that doesn't have LATCH is a pain).

My wife has a CR-V so even though she has 4 doors, it was just easier for me to get a 4 door too.

Thanks for the replies guys.

gr8-wrx: So the GC doesn't have LATCH like the WRX does? That's really convenient. I was mostly concerned about the hassle of getting her back there all the time like you were saying.

liigod: thanks for the offer! Maybe I'll take you up on it one time.

Keep em coming!

Chris,

You can try it in my 00 Coupe RS/WRX Conversion. Basically its the exact car your wanting to make.

I live in Lincoln so its not too far. I will be home all weekend. (School Work from CSUS) so you can come over any time and try it out.

Let me know.

I work with a gal who drives a GC8 coupe with a child's seat in the back. I don't know how she has it set up, but I know it fits because I have seen it in the back of her car.

Cool. Thanks Stanley. Yeah, I just wonder if it's a pain to get the kid in and out of the back seat. Maybe you could ask her?

No need to ask her, she has mentioned that it is kind of a pain to get her boy in and out of the car. Especially now that her son is getting a bit heavier and she is pregnant with #2. She loves the car, though, and is unwilling to give it up.
