Back a few years ago at a very cool show near me called the "Dream Machines" in Half Moon bay Ca I was able to get into a speed record car (I don't know what else to call it) and oh yeah baby that was tight, and I am only 160 lbs!

I guess that at 5'10" and 225#, I just would NOT have been able to try it on! (sigh). And yes, a fit like like that is more like wearing it than getting into it!

I am NOT fat - just big-boned - at least that what Garfield the cat says in the cartoons!
