Default Holdin' Cups

I was hoping this was going to be an expansion of your "I like women in bras" Alliance ad but this is cool too.

I used a large roll of black duct tape for a while,,color to match the carpet but ended up using half the roll,,,a half a roll won't keep a cup of coffee from turning over. HRP

That is really neato. My dad used to build boxes with sliding tops like that to hold tools, or hardware. A few of them were even customized with inserts designed to hold measuring instruments. He was a machinist and a ship carpenter for years.

cool post man.

Cool thing... But I still don't think cup holders are for hot rods. I do just fine holding my mug (sippie cups are for sissies!) and shifting the tremac at the same time. If for some reason I can't, it's probably time to stop for a bit anyway! Seriously though, cool gift.

I have one from back in the 1950's. It is a plastic tray with two holes and a swival bracket. It was designed to be mounted on the lower edge of the dash and swing out from under it to be used.

So google sent me to the link below... Illinois State University, Department of Physics, Solar Car project team, and wouldn't you know, top of the Student column of team members, a Mr. Al Hackle... so it would seem i had found an Al Hackle who at the very least was a big Physics nut, and seemingly, a car enthusiast to the extent he's on a solar car team...
http://www.phy.ilstu.edu/solarcar2/members.shtml

But the university of Illinois is located in Normal, Illinois (love the town name) so seemed to be a dead end... until I google earth the university and learn that Normal, Ill is a zip code just north of, you guessed it, Bloomington http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&so...-8&sa=N&tab=wl
OR..

>>The return address listed a man by the name of Al Hackel from Bloomington, Il. <<

Why go through all that trouble when you could just write a letter to the return address?

That would be too easy. You were wondering the exact same thing I was. Or you could call information.
