Too Much Headroom?

Post by Panda AE86 on Sun Sep 27, 2009 7:04 pm

The majority of average-height western hachi-roku drivers know how short the Japanese actually are: if you are below 6 foot you can still sit okay in the GT seats Toyota put in the AE86 BUT If you are over 6 feet tall, you seriously need to think about low mounted bucket seats or modifying your current seat rails.

Apparently a Japanese man (probably about the size of Ken Nomura) not having this problem thought a roof chop would look great on his AE85 Trueno Coupe:







Really want to know how small you need to be to fit in this hachi, have a look at the interior







Lucky enough the car is an automatic, so you can still stick your head outside the window and not worry about gear shifting if you decide to pay the 780,000 yen price!
