    I drive a Ford Ranger '84 model and darn the luck, if I'm wearing a Fedora, it will be rubbing against the headliner! THERE ISN'T MUCH ROOM!!!!:rolleyes:

    So how many of you have problems with vehicles without enough headroom to wear your hats?

    I'm 6'2" and I can wear my tall crown in my Jeep Cherokee no problem, even with the seat elevated. ;)

    Earlier cars (Most) were built with this consideration in mind:) late cars dont seem to be considerate in this way. Yet another reason for buying a vintage :)

    I can wear a Trilby in my car and there is still around 4 or 5 inches to spare.

    I don't have a problem in my Toyota Sequia and it has a sun roof which takes away some height....but I am only 5'10".

    I wish I had my 40 Buick

    Only 5' 10" gee I wish! I can wear my hat in the Jetta, the Ranger, and the Avalon. No problem. My work car, a Ford Crown Victoria, well, the hat has to come off to manage thru the door not getting in, but out. Funny.

    Now I used to own, but sold. a 1940 Buick 56-S. That puppy, tall roof..you could wear a top hat.

    I know I've posted this before

    But hey, my mind's shot, so it's all new to me...

    Walter Chrysler answered criticism that his cars were too tall and boxy (when many other makers were going for long & low) by saying, "We make cars to sit in, not to piss over!"

    He felt that all his company's cars should allow a man to wear his hat while driving.

    There?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢s plenty of room, height wise, in my Toyota Matrix, but if I?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢m not careful the brim will hit the head rest on the seat.

    Since I am 5'7" short and drive a Jeep Wrangler, I can wear 3 hats stacked on top of each other. I usually do not though as it tends to attract unwanted police attention.

    No problem with heighth in my Toyota 4x4, but if I have a wide brim it rubs the head rest.

    Cheers!

    Subaru Outback, no problems with fedoras or homburgs. Just have to be careful getting in and out.

    5'8"-5'9" (hey, it changes) and I've got room in my XTerra.

    Barely even brush the headrest if the back is turned up...can't drive with the back of the brim down, though... :rolleyes: ...hat keeps popping off my head! :p

    I'd never go without a headrest, but I assume the advent of headrests caused some consternation to hat wearers at the time...

    I'm 6'2" and I drive a 95 Ford F-150, I don't have any trouble with the roof but if I'm not careful I'll hit the head rest.

    I have a Saturn Ion Quad Coupe.

    I can wear my softer fedoras -- just turn down the back brim.

    My cowboy Gus hat, no, nor the harder Akubras. I can't wear the Gus even if the head rest was gone -- it hits the top of the car.

    Of course, my B!Wear caps are no problem at all.....
