Not wanting to steer the Stynoski Winner thread away from such a beautiful car with this addition - Larry S. mentioned "fitting" into a Torpedo due to his height - well, Larry has nearly a foot of vertical distance on me and the Torpedo I did extensive engine work on originally was from Minnesota w/original leather - I could hardly reach the pedals to drive it !!!

So you guys are saying I should be looking for a Torpedo to comfortably seat all 6'5" of myself into?

I have heard of a Torpedo with wood blocks on the pedals.

At 5'4" I will never own a Ford Torpedo as I can't reach the pedals.



I do fit well in my Metz Torpedo Runabout.

Other than the usual high cost of 'em, I couldn't buy one either since I'm so short. Never be able to reach the pedals. I also like the Open Runabout as much or better.
