Fw: headroom in '90-'91 qc

If I recall, the designers lowered the Coupe's roofline below the sedan's by
an inch and a half to make it look rakish.  Take another look and you'll see
that the roof is quite flat, too.  I'm 6'3" and fit perfectly, thanks to a
short torso and long legs.   ...which reminds me of an Alfa I once owned
that was ideal for your average gorilla with long arms and short legs.
