    Well, I worked for a rail yard for 2 days (I quit after the 2nd day lol) and we transported cars off rail cars that were brought to dealerships. We mostly dealt with Ford and GM cars. Well I was lucky enough to sit in the passenger seat of a Sky. I was able to fit fine, I'm about 6 ft tall but I can't speak for the driver side. I'm sure someone my height can fit...ok...not sure about driving long distance in a certain position though.

    It's a freakin tiny car. I love it.

    I've driven several Sky's. I'm 6'1", and I fit fine. The only issue is the top of the windshield comes across at an odd location for taller drivers - like, it feels like it's blocking your vision. It isn't really, you can see fine, but it cuts the "top" of your viewing area where you're not used to it, like driving with your visor set forward. Doesn't hamper your visibility, but seems like it does 'cuz you see less than ususl of the sky and trees & crap, lol.

    Anyway, the ignition has a little "growth" coming off it that annoys the knees of some taller drivers in certain positions, but it's minor. The seat doesn't recline back as far as you'd like, but it's not bad.

    Overall, people under 6' will find it rather roomy for a car in it's class, 6' to 6'3" or so will find it tight but doable. Anyone over 6" 3" is gonna be pretty cramped.
    Kill as few people as possible - but as many as necessary.

    Doesn't sound too too bad...

    I don't know. My next project car I want it to be a roadster. I think i'd rather get it used though or get a Miata and turbo the hell out of it.

    This is years away of course but I man can just dream...

    Talking How big is too big?

    Here are a couple pics of a friend of mine who is 5' 19" as he says, or 6'7" tall, with my base Solstice last year.

    He fit, MUCH better in the drivers seat than in the passengers seat.

    Are you kidding me that he fit in there? What about with the top up? My little bro is 17...he is 6'4" right now (doc says he might be 6'7"+ before he stops growing, I'm freaking 5'9"!) and he got in the Chevy Aveo at the car show...knees were on the dash with the seat all the way back!
