Oh man, you don’t know how right you almost were...several times over the last half hour.
I bought a 2000 Acura Integra w/ manual trans (for wife to fart around in), and I knew it was a small car and figured it would be a cramped drive for someone whose 6’8” like me, but crap on a cracker, I just nearly didn’t make it home in that thing!!
The drive was only 30 min, but it was thru big city streets and street lights and corners, and I’m here to tell you, when you can barely cram yourself into a car’s drivers seat, it is a mistake to them try to drive that car for 30 minutes thru town and expect to be safe and unharmed doing it!!
I swear on all that is holy, I cannot smoothly release the clutch without opening the door to allow my knee to get past the steering wheel. And speaking of my knee, when that leg is not working the clutch and at rest, that knee sticks up into my line of sight and blocks some of my rearward vision from the drivers door mirror!
And if all that wasn’t bad enough, there is not a single cup holder in reach of the driver’s seat!! So I had to do all the things I just described doing WHILE HOLDING MY BEER with my left hand!!!!!
Folks, I don’t often admit I have erred on something, but I think I may have just purchased a car which I won’t be able use...good thing it’s as destined for the ole lady’s errands anyway. Otherwise I do believe I’d be pushing that death trap into the lake TONIGHT!!
