Tall man begins people mover hunt...

Who would have thought it would be so difficult for a 6 foot 8 inch man to fit into a people mover?

Many options were crossed off the list during today's tour of the car yards. Internet research has already eliminated lots more.

I hope there will be something left that he can sit in without hitting his head on air-conditioning vents, electronic sliding door apparatus, sun-roof openings, etc etc. The list goes on.

The car itself can't be too tall either. The opening of our garage is only 192cm high when the door is fully up.

The kids' criteria for a good car were far simpler. Rosie liked anything with seats that she could sit in and wave at people from. For the boys, lots of drink holders, air conditioning vents next to their seats that they could adjust themselves, and a television in the roof got big ticks from them.

We are not at all keen on DVD in the roof of the car. For many reasons, including that it's just one more thing for the tall man to hit his head on.

We own a Mitsubishi Grandis , if you want to know the pros and cons of that. Though my husband is only 6 ft.

Your husband is that tall? Wow!

The Grandis is still under consideration...but they have just stopped making them (not that we would be in the market to buy anything new here!). Also a bit worried about anchor point locations in their second row, do they get in the way of older kids' feet in the third row??
