[DML] Re: Tall DeLorean wannabe owner looking for advice from Dave Swingell and other tall DeLorean owners



That would be me. . . .

I'm 6'4 - it's fine for me, but I'd say that I'm right at the edge. I 
can't say that I've met a taller owner, so 6'6 may be a problem.

If you are "tall in the body" rather than long-legged there could be 
an issue. You really need to find one to try on for size. With the 
seat all the way back , and tilted all the way against the back 
luggage shelf, you'll either fit or you won't. If the door hits your 
head there's probably not a lot you could do about it, with the 
possible exception of some form of racing seat that is much thinner 
in the backrest and seat padding.
