Default Why do tall guys like Cars?

I have observed that most of the car enthusiasts are above 5.8' . That is not to say that shorter guys dont like cars and driving, but most of the car driving lovers are tall. Is it true, or i am mistaken?

lol.. does that mean... i am.... among the top few car lovers??

this theory does explain one thing though... why females normally don't love cars... as they rarely come in the 5"8'+ designs....

Never heard this! Height has nothing to do with love for cars! Most men by nature are lover of cars while the women are not!

If you read the book "Why men can't lie and women can't read maps" by Pease & Pease, you'll come to know the different brain construstion between male & female and that explains why men are inclined to love all mechanical things.

If you haven't read that book, I suggest that you read it now. It costs appx Rs 180

Our very own Stuart Little is only about 4 feet tall, but by God, he can drive! I don't think height is an issue, and trust me, when you sit in the FISSME, 5'5" is better than 6'!!!
