Ditto. This may not work for Monte, but I wedge the cup between the
passenger seat back and my purse. The problem is, it requires two hands
and a quick look to put it back. When I remember to take it, a tall narrow
ice chest wedged in with the purse works better.
While we're on the subject of cross-country drives, I slept in the
passenger side of my '67B when I drove it from Seattle to Boston last May.
Well, I slept in it when it was stopped. Since the seats don't recline in
the early cars, I unbolted the seat back at the sides and set it where it
would go if it reclined. With dirty clothes filling up the gaps, it was
like being in a hammock. My head was on the package tray behind the seats
and my feet were touching the firewall. Something large, round and
padded--I don't remember what--was holding up my knees beyond the front of
the seat bottom. Pungent but comfy.
I always think I'm going to check out the local sights on one of these long
drives, but by the second day I smell too bad to inflict myself on anyone
