    with the seat straight up you will probably hit the roof even I at 5'11" feel like the roof is close with the seat up all the way but just a few degrees leaned back should fix the headroom problem you will have to try it for yourself to be sure i have heard of people moving the seat back im not sure how easy that is I havent had to do it but im sure it could be done fairly easy just unbolt and drill new holes maybe have to make brakets but I dont know good luck with the f-body if you get one

If I knew anybody around here with one I would just ask to sit in it, but since I don't, I have to resort to asking an online forum lol. Thanks for any help.

    I agree with luster iam also 6'5" and about 250 lbs i recline the seat back all the way and i am fine just a little hard getting out next to cars due to the huge doors on the car and it needs to be all the way open to get out.

    I'm 6'4"-5" 245lbs or so and not a problem. I had more leg room in my stealths, but the center console area sucked on them. I have no problem getting in or out either. Maybe when Im an old man, but for now its all good.

    I'm 6'5" and have no trouble in my 2002 SS. Plenty of leg room.

    That being said, I haven't seen how well I'm going to fit inside with a helmet on at the track.

    disabled 46 year old fart here, got my own WS6 to drive, and at 6'0tall, #265, I fit ok, but I really find that the driver's seat should go back a bit further then it does... even a measley inch or two more would allow me to stretch my legs out and be in a much better position for driving.

    well hopefully when he finally gets his disability which was applied for 10/04 and still doesn't have it then he will get him something. Finally had court 2 weeks ago and they finally said it. So we are waiting desperatly for that first check!!! He is thinking about getting him an lt1 also...Or a Drop top pink caddy LOL...I told him to go with a drop top lt1/ls1. He like the looks of my ta better than the newer style so he would prolly get an lt1.

    And yes another inch would make it a little easier on the legs. But another inch or two would prolly hit the front of the back seat...

    No one ever sits behind my seat, so it wouldn't matter, and my wife is only 5'4", so the passenger side is good enough for her and our 12 year old son(only one at home).

    As far as Social Security.... They are in no hurry to pay us anything. It took me 2 lawyers and almost 7 years to get mine. To make matters worse, they still didn't come off the money they were supposed to, I got very little backpay and a sorry ass monthly check to look forward to. But, I managed to get my WS6 and have enough to pay the note, insurance, monthly bills, and a bit left over for gas & cigs(if I could only stop smoking, I could make more roadtrips). Now my wife has every reason in the world to bitch me out every day, but when she gets in that car and we pull those T-Tops off........
