[V8] 92 V8 on eBay / Seat Nets

I'd be interested to see how these seat-back nets came from the factory.
Those on my car hang down a bit and essentially seem to have lost any
real elasticity that they may have had.  Being the car's second owner,
and knowing the car's previous owner and history, I have serious doubts
they've ever been used to any real extent -- until I moved the leather
owner's portfolio binder thing in there from the rear seat center
armrest (to make room for an OEM 1st aid kit).
