351C Hardened Seats Needed???

Sending my heads to the machine shop in the next week or so. What is everyones opinion on putting hardened seats in? Are the really needed? Do you do both or just exhaust? The engine will have SS valves, 4v quenched heads and be a weekend driver during the summer. Comp is 11.0 :1. The valve seats are in great shape (not recessed, first valve job)

If your gonna keep the car and drive it alot,,put them in(exhaust side)If you trade alot or will drive it like a couple hundred miles a year it isn't required,,just keep in mind you'll never be closer than you are now to doing it ,,I do it to all mine when rebuilding just to not have to worry about goin from occassional driver to daily driver status
