+1 for sure i'm 5 11 230lbs and the miata is a tight fit but i like the car 300lber is way past pushing it.

I fit fine at 6' and 140lbs but friends that are in the 200-250 range don't like it but they are fine once they are in. My lil bro is 5'9" 220lbs and fits great but whines about getting in and out. I never have had complaints from women except about how far down it is to get in.

I'd imagine heavy people would want something more like a crown vic / dodge caravan than a miata......

That's what I'm doing. One pair of Momo Starts, 32" waist or you are walking.

Actually there's a ~300lb dude with a Miata in the local club. He occupies a good 2/3rds of the interior volume.

He has a 5.0 swap out of necessity

I have a cousin that's 6'4" and 340lbs, he sat in the pass seat (top down) to check the fit. There would be no shifting gears with him there in either seat. His "little" bro is 6'6" 270lbs (at 16) and he fits reasonably well if the top is down.

My older cousin told me he'd much rather a full size car or truck than anything else but that's him.

Do you ever carry passengers?
BTW your car looks really scary. "In the best way possible."

LOL, my Dr told me based on family history and my own bone structure I should be 180-200lbs but not even a 5000cal/day diet + loads of exercise can make me gain a lb. He said there are weight gain pills that work but they will only make you gain fat, ruining my 3% body fat I've got going (used to be a competitive cyclist, swimmer and x-country runner).

99% of the time just my dog (20lb puggle). One time I gave a ride to my neighbor who is like 6'2 330 The car seemed much slower, lol, but we fit. Good thing my fiance is like 125

Scary, I think thats the best compliment I've gotten

^what I did. But now the gym time is making my seat reall tight in the shoulder area (sparco sprint V). Really good solution though, and the GF loves them, clearly an added bonus!
