    I've been wanting to do this for a long time. Essentially, this is my idea for the perfect glove box wallet. We started with some really nice Horween Rio Latigo leather and then had that hand stitched to my design that allows for a pen, a tire pressure gauge, a notepad, a large compartment for your insurance card, and a smaller slot for your AAA card. Then, we filled the thing... Each will come with:

    1. A Parker Jotter pen. This is essentially the longest made American pen still in production.
    2. A Milton S921 tire pressure gauge. This is, without question, the best pencil gauge on the market.
    3. A three pack of Field Notes. Needs no introduction really...

    Everything is made in the USA.

    So, all you gotta do is stuff in your insurance papers and your AAA card and then start keeping a maintenance journal for your hot rod in the Field Notes. Cool, right?

    I'm pretty excited. They are gonna be expensive because of the leather and the high end fillings, but I think they will be worth it. I'm hoping to have them up for sale a week from today. I've only got 50 of them...

    Note: The tire pressure gauge in these pictures is not the gauge that these will come with... This is a cheap fill in as I'm still waiting on the Milton gauges to get here.

    No preorders I'm afraid... just doing it from the seat of my pants.

    I'm thinking Christmas gifts for my boys. I'm ready to pull the trigger on that.

    Cool idea....I'd be into a couple if they weren't super expensive. Have any idea yet on how much?

    I'm not sure yet, but super... I have around $70 in the wallet itself, so I'm guessing they are going to be around $100.
