GT4 dreaming...I'm tall, though. Anyone else a tall owner?

    The more I see GT4's, the more I like them. The ratty one at Gullwing has caught my eye. (Yes, I've done my research on GWM). Yes, I know the Ferrari Mantra of "buy the best one you can", but I'm one of the few non-professionals out there who starts with cars that look like this:

    Only problem seems to be i'm 6'3 and 210lbs...longer legs too.

    I'm currently a 348 owner, and life got easier with the Hill 2" steering spacer.

    Any tall owners out there with GT4's?

    I have a GT4 with no modifications and am 6’6” tall. It takes a little time to get situated but once in, I’m able to drive comfortably.

    I'm 6'2", 240ish and I fit quite comfortably in mine. Depends on how you set up your driving position as well.

    Without a whole lot of space, I'll probably have to sell the GTX first...

    To make it worse, "The Smoking Tire - One Take" just did a 308 GT4 run.

    I brought (saved) the ratty green GT4 from Gullwing last year. Please save that red one...its still save-able :)

    Peter and team were great to deal with and I got the car for a decent price off of what they were asking. The green car turned out to be much better then it looked when I 1st saw it there. The one thing gullwing does opposite of most dealers is they dont shine the stuff up...the green one was a dirty mess and cleaned up very nicely.

    As far as fit its bigger then a 348 for sure.

    Got any recent pics of the green one? I searched and found some from when you got it (and when GW had it).

    man.... Now it's those adopt-a-puppy feelings...lol

    Cool story. The green one was in an industrial storage space apparently since 1984. They changed the freight elevator over time and it was too small to bring the gt4 down without removing the very small bumpers ;) I love working on GT4's...much more fun then working on my Alfa Montreal..

    I'm 6'3" at 220 lbs with long legs and have no trouble fitting in my gt4, and with plenty of headroom. However, no one will ever be able to sit behind me when I'm driving except paper dolls.
