Who puts biscuits and gravy into a cupholder?

No fluids that aren't X-rated, anyway.
And that would give "cup holder" a whole new meaning.

Yeah, I knew about that, but the 64oz drink bottom still wouldn't even fit it's so big around. Dang you AM/PM.

That's my drink!! Unless she took the lid off I'm not understanding how the whipped cream jumped out of the cup, but I digress. That's not the world's biggest cup (I get the regular) and it's still all I can do to shift around it. I cannot imagine how you'd shift around 64 ozs!!

Thankfully you have leather interior. I don't lose my mind when something gets on the leather b/c it's pretty easy to clean.

For many years we did fine without cup holders...after all we knew it was bad enough smoking a cigarette and periodically taking our eyes off the road to flick the ashes in the ashtray...well now the cup holders have become the latest distraction. I use the cup holder for other items (i.e. cell phone, sunglasses), but not for drinks...lesson learned, shift to drinking water with no sugar...

Me too - I put my cell phone in it. I can't drink pop so unless I get a caramel java chiller, I don't usually have a drink in the car at all.
Spilling Mt. Dew has to be the worst!

I never drive with any drinks in my mustang ( I haven't as yet ) after all these stories just reminds me why I am not going to start.

My dad (who owns a 2005 Mustang GT) asked me when I told him about the "incident"-

"Don't you know the cardinal rule?"

"What rule?"

"Thou shalt not eat in my mustang"

I laughed...
I guess maybe it's because I still have a Nutri-grain wrapper and Pop-Tart wrapper in my car. Guess I should clean out the interior this weekend.


...a couple of empty water bottles...

...some paper trash...

WOW, I really need to clean out my car.
