Ghm... Google tells me that Abraham Lincoln was 6'4" (193 cm).
So, now, I know why he did not drive a car: he didn't fit in either of 
those cars.  :-)

On a serious note, one guy we knew long time ago was close to 2-m tall 
(somewhere in the vicinity of 6'6").
Surprisingly, the car he bought was a smallish one, something like Toyota 
Celica. He had tried many cars, and that one had the most leg space for

My late father was 172 cm tall and considered himself an average height. I
am 180 cm tall and I think just like my dad.

So, yes - he could fit comfortably in Ford Escort circa 1980es, while I'd
prefer bigger Ford Focus.
