Here is something. My father for a long time claimed he would never buy leather seat with the they are hot in summer and cold in winter. The last real leather he sat in was long ago and they were hard as rocks. Now move forward to the 90’s and he is looking at a Buick with Standard Leather.
My father buys the leather seats and then marvels at how good they felt. They were not the hard roasting seats of his youth.
Also he was disabled and he found they were much easier to get in the car with vs cloth.
Look if you like cloth seats like this guy that is fine. But don’t be dishonest on the other. You are not talking to a group that has no clue on this topic and we know better.
Hagerty needs to leave this agenda drive rants off the sight. This is for automotive people to share our love for our cars not to be addressed by people with personal agendas.
