    Silly nonsense kind of poll and I know what the majority will be based on just looking at pics, already, but since it is adjustable, on a 70 do you like seeing the seat headrests up or down?
    Now, back to the garage

    Never thought about what anyone else thought about this but I leave mine down. Enjoy the garage time.

    I actually don't remember how I keep mine. I'll have to go out in the garage and look later today.

    And that just about sums up how important this poll is!

    Maybe because I am 6 ft tall, but I always had mine up. But whenever I see one for sale or at a show or in a picture, they are always down. Maybe because the chrome latch thing always fades and looks bad?

    That would be the only benefit. I don’t use it for a headrest.

    We don't have head rests in the Birds, my drivers, up.

    Hiding the faded chrome latch?;) Actually, I think they are the same as 69's and repoped pretty well. Something still to buy on mine.

    I think it looks better down but I would drive with it adjusted to my head. I read somewhere that most people in modern cars do not properly adjust their headrest therefore contributing to injuries in a collision. So, don't crash if you're driving with it down.
