Thumbs up

You could use velcro if you really wanted to. You'd also have to re-locate the speaker of course. I like Y-Blokkah's idea best. Mine is 5'5" blonde with brown eyes.

This is exactly what I'm using now. It works great. I've got it between the console and the passenger seat. It'll fit either way, but seems to work better when the round holes for the cups are sitting on the console, instead of sitting over the pass. seat. Don't sit exactly level, but it works good. And just take it out if you don't want it sitting there when not in use.

And almost forgot. I saw somewhere on this site, that somebody either made, or bought, a drink holder that had a flat bottom. Painted it to match the interior color. Then attached (glued ?) a magnet to the bottom of it. Then set it on the console in front of the speaker grill. It's removeable. And seems to work well. That's on my to do list.

Default Drink Holder....

Here is how one of our other members handled the drink holder problem. Check out how Daleo56 did it. Look at Post #480 and down, as I recall.

Here is a pic of what it looks like...

When I drove my 1960 bird to the NSRA nationals in Louisville several months ago, I took the advice of a member of H.A.M.B. Community (http://www.jalopyjournal.com) and used 2 rolls of duct tape stacked on top of each other for my cup holder. The two rolls were heavy enough on the center console that they did not slide. They worked really well!

Hey! I didn't know there was another squarebird there besides mine. Give me a shout next year and I'll tell you where I park. It's around back, in the grass , close to the back door.

Definitely! I plan on making it next year for the 50th. Should be a packed house.
