Note to prospective sunroof buyers

I was reading some sunroof threads and I was kind of shocked when I heard people say they are (anywhere from 5"10-6"2) complaining of headroom and some saying it's impossible to be comfortible.

I am 6"5 1/2 and can say FOR SURE that if you make the proper seat adjustments , THERE IS PLENTY OF ROOM and it's very comfortable and there's nothing like letting the roof back and letting the SHARK FIN stick out

6'5 = LOVE MY SUNROOF

And I also didn't know what a reverse mohawk was until a week ago when my brother in law showed me on his SS (we are neighbors I never noticed it). I have never noticed it and am sure 100% of non-camaro drivers don't either lol

Casper has the sunroof and im 5-10. I have no problems sitting inside of Casper. Very comfortable. I have smacked my head a few times but only because my wife is 5-6 and sometimes she moves the seat around.

The height issue aside, isn't the overhead integrity of the structure reduced by a sunroof in the same way a convertible top does, only less so? I'm thinkin' of how the sunroof would require a roll cage at a lower speed pass than a solid roofed car. What are the NHRA rules regarding sunroofs?

Of course you didn't notice the reverse mohawk, you didn't HAVE one. How you gonna notice it if you don't have it?

I'd love to have ordered mine with a sunroof, and wanted to. Till I saw the first pics with the sunroof open. Just looks cheap as hell to me when it's open.

I'm 6'2" and more of my height comes from my body than my legs. I sat in a sunroof SS and put the seat as far down as it would go and could feel my hair hitting the headliner unless I reclined the seat more than I wanted to. Wearing a hat seemed out of the question.

6'3" and no issues here. Reverse Mohawk is the most overrated thing I have ever seen. I laugh at people that think the general public notice it or know what it is when one of the most asked questions I get from strangers is whether I have a V6 or V8.

Is it enough to say that you're 6'3" tall? Shouldn't we be talking about the legs to torso ratio?

Negative, ghost rider.

Some people (like me) who are 6'3" even with the seat adjusted all the way to the floor and the seatback uncomfortably reclined are still within head-rubbing territory of the roof. It all depends on the length of your torso. Mine just happens to be vertically proportioned more than most.

I'm 6'1" and the way I like my seat had the top of my head grazing the roof. Without the sunroof, I've got and inch or two. Yes, it depends on how you sit, but I'm not willing to compromise my comfort and back just so I can have a useless hole in my roof.

Plus there are different kinds of "tall". If your height is all legs, it may not affect you whereas if you're a friggin giant all around, it may.

It's most certainly a case by case situation. In mine, the sunroof simply wasn't an option.

I believe gm made the sunroof an option, because not everybody likes them, or wants one.

No doubt.

It does turn out to be highly over-rated. It was why I originally wasn't gonna order with the sunroof. I loved the reverse mohawk look but wanted a sunroof. So I was torn. Then I saw the sunroof open.

My mind was made up.

But, I wouldn't say people don't notice it. Sure, nobody has ever run up to me and said "Man, I just wanted to tell you I LOVE your roof"

But, in talking about the car, I've had several people say they liked it better than the sun roof. And not becasue I asked. Just stuff they'd say standing around talking.

I so wish the sunroof was done better. I'd have ordered it. It's one thing missing as far as I'm concerned. Just think the sunroof on THIS car is hideous when opened.
