Help with seats

Hey every one!

I'm working on restoring an 82 Trans Am. I'll eventually get to the interior, but it's not a focus right now. I'm just trying to go ahead and decide what I want.
The car came with PMD's and I loved them! They were the most comfortable seats I've ever ridden in! However, I bought the entire interior out of a 97 Camaro SS so I put those seats in. They're not nearly as comfortable and my back hurts after a while of riding (I go cruising a lot).
I think I may put the Camaro seats in my 84 Z28 (it's more fitting, and the z28 won't get driven as much) but I need to come up with seats for the Trans Am. I've never picked out seats before and I would like to be pointed in the right direction. I want something that'll be sturdy but comfortable (if that can even happen). Who's all happy with their non-stock seats? I would really like some ideas before just jumping on Recaro's website and getting disappointed when they arrive lol. Sorry for having such a general question, but I've just honestly never picked out seats before.

4th gen trans am formula seats are really comfortable I put a set in my 87 and it was great improvement over the cloth seats they offer them with and without lumbar supports (and it was a super fast swap!)
