    I hope they sell the hell out of these things so I can grab one used in ten years from some old timer (Ray comes to mind) for cheap.

    I went to the Scion dealer today to check out the FRS. I tried to pretend like anything would fit in the back seat but even with the seat in an uncomfortable position for my 5'7" frame, I still could not fit in the back seat. The salesman interaction was hilarious as usual with a total douche with no clue what the car was trying to explain the AT to me. He kept thinking that somehow mentioning his "Callaway" 4 times was an excuse for his ineptitude. Then tried to tell me if I was even thinking about an FRS to buy one now because they don't last on the lot. He also said they don't make that many so they are pretty much a "collector only" type of car.

    They also had $2980 markup for a set of MSR style 045 wheels and the cheapest Toyo tires.

    Still a nice car.

    Good thing I don't plan to hang out in the back seat!

    Seriously though, thanks for the heads up. It's good to know that any adult-sized person isn't likely to be comfortable, back there.

    What sucks is its not a matter of "oh I can fit ill just be uncomfortable", I literally could not fit my foot into the foot well gap between the seats to step in to the back seat.

    I guess you would have to slide the seat all the way forward, let your unamericanly thin passengers get into the back, slide the seat as far back as their legs/ankles can stand, then make transformer noises, and try and squish into the drivers seat. There is just no way. And anyone over 5'7" forget about the thought of a passenger if they aren't in a car seat.

    Seriously Ray I don't think your daughters could fit behind the drivers seat with you driving in any position other than your chin over the steering wheel.

    They should just give up on the BS of making these cars (all of them in that style) with pretend seats. Set it up so one (or maybe two) person(s) can sit comfortably sideways. Like they did in the little trucks, but with something more comfortable than the little fold down shelves they had.

    It's not that common a scenario, any more. My oldest goes up front, now, and she would be able to put the seat up to accommodate someone in the back.

    So the wife has to stay home? lol

    If I purchased one, to justify it, I'd need a semi usable rear seat. Otherwise it'd be just a toy and require selling my motorcycle.

    I wondered about the seats. It doesn't surprise me, though. It's not all that rare a practice for car makers to do that now, or in the past. The only reason that sorry excuse for a seat exists is to satisfy insurance regs.

    Yeah. The first thing i did when I saw the car at the dealer was try out the rear seat. With the front seat forward giving the driver liberal space I somehow got in the back only to find my forehead up against the rear windshield. But still a lot better than the 911 with better quality rear seats.

    If I owned one I would probably just remove the rear seats like I did in my Integra. The car is pretty much a two seater anyway.

    That's hilarious, glad to know these type of guys are out there making my job oh so easy! I'm selling them for invoice, have 8 in stock, and only managed to sell one so far through the program in a month, so much for being a super rare unobtainable collector car... Well I'm off to go move my Calloway out of the way so i can wash my Ferarri did I mention I got rid of those stupid 3 piece speedline wheels and upgraded to some sweet ASA wheels Rollin on tiger paw tires? Only cost me 3 grand brah!
