Headroom for 6'8" - Sat in Camaro SS

6' 8" tall - Sat in an SS, 6spd, w/o sunroof at the Minneapolis Auto Show and had about a half inch of clearance while sitting straight up. Leg room was not an issue and right knee did not get in the way of shifting (telescoping steering wheel provides a good range of adjustment). Thought some of the taller folks would find this helpful.

With the seat all the way back, there is absolutely no rear seat to speak of: I know us long-time fans will appreciate this since it is how it the was and still should be.

Also sat in a CTS-V. No issues. Drooled over, but did not sit in, a ZR1.

Took some pics. Will post if reqested.

Good to know that most of the NBA will be able to add these to their collections without issue.

The poor ZR1! I saw people leaning on it, buttons on jackets hitting it, etc, etc, etc...I wanted to take it home and raise it as my own....

Haha wow that is good to know, thank god for you tall Camaro fans! I'm 6'2" and was worried about being able to comb my hair up (adds like 1.5") since in a few cars it has rubbed on the ceiling, which really pisses me off lol! Don't have to worry about that now hehe.
