Hammer: Originally employed as a weapon of war, the hammer nowadays is used as a kind of divining rod to locate expensive car parts not far from the object we are trying to hit.

On this "American" thing. We have to have cupholders. We can't hold our cup while we text and drive at the same time. Not enough hands.

And almost exclusively have automatic transmission, which makes these feats of dexterity possible.

car such as an MGB requires constant attention to drive. Cup holders are not needed and should not be installed in the car. Distractive driving causes accidents. Want a drink pull over and have it. Keep the roads safe.

So far the winner for cup holders seems to be two rolls of duct tape, One for each occupant. Of course there are plenty of other reasons to carry this versatile product devil smiley

I've upgraded to the 4" wide rolls...... more stable.

Get yourself one of those foam soda/beer can coolers, a large washer and a self tapping screw and fasted the cooler wherever you can find a convenient spot.

Hi John.

It is a generic from wallmart. It looks like the same one as Peter Hopkins has in post 41. Nice thing is that it is adjustable to various size cans and cups.

Thanks Bruce,

Rats! I won't be near a Wallmart until 2017 - I'm planning to be over for the total solar eclipse and I'm thinking of a drive from Minneapolis to SFO taking in national parks etc. but the car rental drop off charges will be as astronomical as the event!
