    I stick my elbow out and keep my hand inside. Holding on to the roof is OK. Actually necessary if you are working the suicide knob hard. But just letting your hand flop in the wind sends the wrong message. In some neighborhoods.

    Do it while your young, when you get older the arm don't like to go up that high, or maybe my seat is to low.

    No way. Remember seeing the gory photos in Enquirer Magazine in the 60's where they showed what was left of the drivers left arm when it was cut off by another driver who sideswiped his left door.

    Yup, it's like a lil' hug.
     
  21. I've done it from day-one driving. Just the elbow and will grab the rain gutter to break up the monotony. I still pull it in if someone gets too close or I don't like the traffic situation.

    In stock cars, I'd put my left hand out the window during cautions and cup my hand to funnel in some cooler air into the cockpit.

  22. I tried to do it the American way today, hang my left arm out the drivers window. Scared the hell out of the pedestrians as I drove along the foot path out of control. Think I'll stick to the Aussy way and keep hanging my right arm out there.
    Doc.

    Call this thread whatever you want, but it made me laugh, and I needed a laugh.

    Oh, and yeah, you know I hang my arm out the window.
     
  27. Yeah, so? How else am I going to elbow those faggot bicyclists in their faggy little shorts and their faggy little gloves? Nothing like a good elbow strike to the back of the head as you drive by. The faster you go the more it hurts. You think I'm kidding?

    No shit! I was out cruising down a backroad in my T-bucket years ago and had my arm resting along the body edge. I hit a bump in the road and my arm slipped off and my fingers hit the rear tire. Ripped a fingernail almost completely off! The blood drops spraying all over the inside of the windshield looked pretty cool, but it hurt like a bitch! :eek: :D
