    Default Clever cup holder

    I thought this is pretty neat how they got this cup holder into such a small space.
    It's in a 2005 Subaru Baja.

    Looks pretty neat but if it ever breaks well that would be a serious mess on your hands...

    Just one more thing to make the Baja a cool car though. I've always kinda wanted one

    The 99-02 cougar had a similar cup holder in the console. If you made a right turn, your drink dumped into your lap.
    It's Gumby's fault.

    Reminds me of when the AC drain gets plugged. You make a corner and the driver's floor vent dumps ice water into the top of your shoe!

    Man you guys are obsessed with adding cupholders to these cars. The newest ones are 30 years old. Pre cupholder era. Do what I do: either bring a water bottle with a lid or don't drink in the car. Any drinks with sugar in them are bad for the upholstery and for you .

    I'd much rather have a "Dublin" Dr Pepper (made with sugar, not with corn syrup) over something with aspartame or sucralose. I don't drink monster, or any other energy drink except for very occasionally one of those java coffee things.

    I only ever drink water, tea, coffee and one or two Dr Peppers a day.


    The cup holder in my explorer has two different sizes. The larger one fits my big insulated mug perfectly. One could probably graft the insert into a Tbird console but if it has floor shift,there wouldn't be enough room.

    And I wouldn't give up floor shift for a damn cupholder lol
