    I've wondered about this before. And I do catch myself doing that to keep me from sliding on the seat when I'm turning lol. I guess I probably need seatbelts. So anyways, after checking out a video on youtube and noticing 90% of drivers and passengers hanging their arm out the window... I had to ask.
    So what's up with that? :p Do you do it? and Why?

  6. I do all the time, that or just have the elbow on the sill. Its comfortable! There was a race driver here in Australia that used to always do it, CAMS told him to stop doing it because it was dangerous. He had the team build the roll cage out around where his elbow sat just to piss them off! This was in the 70s, RIP Brocky.

  11. Well for one thing for the guys that grab unto the roof don't wanna have the roof fly off at speed. the others who let their arm hang down it's to prevent premature opening of the door at speed. Also it looks cool!

    What window?:D

    In a . . door?:confused:

    Maybe I should make something that I can hang my arm out of, so I don't feel so left out.

    i like feeling the wind flowing around my hand and arm. also it helps push fresh air in and that oily burnt smell out.

    Look cool, provide fresh air, and let other folks enjoy my choice of music (oldies/goodies, pre "new" country, and any rockabilly I can find). Back when I used to be one of them evil smokers, it was only natural. Besides, I don't have time to roll down the window AND grab my 12ga sawed-off.

    It makes a casual "You're number 1" and thumbs up gestures so much easier. Keeps the Lucky Strikes in your rolled sleeve fresh too.

    I do it so so the skin doctor will know which arm will most likely get the liquid nitrogen. Saves time.

    I used to hang my head out the window until I kept cracking my head on shit, so now I just put my arm out. Just not the same though...
