It will be so much less cramped.

  1. One of the main features of a car or automobile for tall people is visibility. As a former pro driver who outgrew the vehicles, from a safety standpoint, at 5foot 5inches in most autos tall driver’s have trouble seeing ahead and turning to see to the back and sides. The head restraints are a major issue as well. The ability to sit in the driver seat or back seat, legroom and headroom etc are just part of the tall person car woes. You need to be able to driver safely with clear vision and in a proper driving position that even with telescopic steering and multiple seat adjustments cannot be achieved in 99 percent of the automobiles out there. The truth of the matter is that most manufacturers design and build autos with the claimed average person in mind. F1 would not be the same if the cars were built for tall pilots. Tall people are stuck with some really sh….y vehicles to driver. But then who said driving should be fun or comfortable? Oh ya, the car manufacturers!

    1. Hey John! That does sound super irritating to not be able to find the right car, or one that you like. I wonder if it’s worse being a really short person and having to choose between sitting dangerously too close to the airbag or actually being able to reach the pedals to control the car to go somewhere. I guess average folks don’t know how easy their life is in that regard. I think I’m gonna work on inventing the perfect car for tall people…
