Cup holder ideas.

I have no place to put my coffee cup on my drive to work. I'm looking for cup holder ideas.

It fits where your seat belts go in the center console, so you have a choice, cup holder or belt holder.

I had to take mine apart a re-locate the blocks on the bottom as the Shelby's belt holder sits too far forward and the shifter hits it when pulled back. I only say this because with this knowledge, you can modify it in many ways.

Someone here used a piece of pvc pipe large enough to fit a cup inside. The pipe was cut down and attached to a piece of rubber material to keep it from sliding around. When not needed, it can be put away behind a seat, in the trunk, etc.

I use a fresh role of duck tape sitting between the seats. The sticky edge and weight of a new role keeps it from sliding around. :-)

They sell cup holder trays on Amazon that are stable enough to hold a drink in the passenger seat.

For console cars the type that wedge between the seat and the console would work. No experience with this particular one, it was just the first that popped up.

Nothing worthwhile is ever quick, cheap or easy, those that can't do, complain

Pep Boys and others used to sell a cheap plastic one for a couple dollars that hooked into the door where the window went up and down. That being said I just got to be good a putting a drink between my legs without squeezing too much.

If you're like me and your ash tray doesn't get used, consider this:

289
4 speed
Rally-Pac
Bench Seat
Power Steering
All-around discs
Aftermarket A/C

And not nearly enough time

Thanks for all the options. So far I like the one that goes in the seat belt holder the best.

A good looking woman makes an excellent cupholder. Makes the ride a lot better, too.
Just saying.

Haha my anniversary is coming up!
The picture was taken as we were leaving our wedding 20 years ago.

I have a Classic Industries Humphugger that I got before I found an original Aqua console. When I added the console, I took the upholstery loose on the bottom, trimmed the wood and reattached the vinyl, effectively making their "Saddle" model. I just wish the cupholders were larger. The new models have one that is bigger than the other, I use the storage space a LOT and the armrest is da bomb. I bet I've had that thing 18 years now.

I do recommend the Classic Industries "Saddle" and "Humphugger" consoles with storage, armrest, and cupholders available in all the factory interior colors. When I want the original look, I just put it in the trunk. Or, you could fab and build your own!

I like the one that goes between the seat and the console. And it would be easy to stash under the seat at shows. When I got mine running again after 13 years of being parked, I found the Godzilla cup holder still there from way back when. Gave it to a Godzilla fan, since it wasn't going to work for me anymore, just didn't look right.
