    ^ I'm the short one in the family. The reason why cars are short for the OP is because the designers always cater to the midrange of the bell curve.

    What cars are these? I'm 6'4" (well-proportioned) and rarely have problems with head-space in most cars (sedans, SUVs...) but the legspace is what's often a b*tch.
