yes, you are 5'8, and further adjustment is possible too

i think tall guys like machines because they like to enhance the macho image they have.
others look for other interests like art music, photography etc.
(my personal theory, created as i am writing it).

Dont think too much buddy.. but since you asked it, anyone above 5.8' is designated as "Tall" in my book.

I'm 5.5 and trust me, cars aint only for "you" tall guys. It depends on your likes, what you gain interests towards when your growing.

I dont think height has anything to do with it, sex does. Oops let me rephrase that, gender does......

I am a car lover. Have I just grown taller or what? I guess my wife should jump in joy if she sees me taller than her
BTW, I am just around 5'5" and I love cars.

Whatver made you even relate height to passion about cars ?

devarshi, if you dont find one equally interested in cars, you can always try to convert them! (talking from experience here ;-) )

Well why do you think they started racing as kids (like karts n stuff) where they were not doing it for the money?

i think this whole discussion depends on individual, their likes and dislikes. so nor height neither gender matters. the only thing that matters is a indivudals outlook and his inclination towards good things in life and cars are one of them. i mite say that women go for aesthetic beauties more then the technicalities and even one( read male) ends up generalising women with it but then there are quite few women on this forum who may not be active in ways of no of posts but they are here to lap up the extensive knowledge in the field of automobiles.

as far as the thing of height of a person is concerned, if he/she is able to use the ABC while driving without being uncomfortable , height wont matter or lessen the individuals' love for cars.

In general i have seen ppl overquote their height by atleast 1 inch.

5feet 8 inches classifies as tall? i thought that was slightly above average.

BTW am 5feet 9 inches tall and i love cars.

Theory proved,case closed and dismissed


How about another theory stating that those who drive diesel cars rarely have sex
