Very welcome Art, I love that cup holder, any time I pick up fast food it comes in handy, it can even hold a nice large sized drink from your average fast food shop, but you need to have somebody hold the top of them, or else your in for a floorboard of soda, it works great for coffee thermos'*, and small to medium sized drink cups.


One of these days I need to look for a maroon colored center console, I had a huge speaker setup in my trunk, and was forced to put groceries in the back seat, and floorboard area, when doing so one day I must have thrown something heavy in there, because it broke the air vent housing off.

Ya too bad they placed that air vent in the middle William. I noticed when I was loading a short ladder in the rear seat floor/it was resting on vent and used a towel to protect it, luckily I caught it before I broke it. Kinda flimsy.
I like those cup holders too. My drivers side is ok only the right side broke off a bit.
I had though about somehow fixing the right side ...any ideas?

this is going to be an awesome week. i just can feel it. yesterday, i haad to take a dog to the vet. today, i had to take lauren to the ER after an idiot totaled out her car and the airbags didnt deploy after JUST having the recall work done for EXACTLY this issue. heads are going to roll.

control arm is completely broken, tierod is bent at a 35, strut is collapsed and the rad core support is trashed ontop of the obvious. went to move it out of the road and the wheel just stuffs itself into the fender. if anyone was wondering, the old fart in the impala tried to make a left turn infront of her. no yellow light or anything. open road, impatient azzhole flooring it at the last second.

Oh man, that does not look good, I hope she is ok!
Hoping your, and Lauren'* week gets better, hopefully the worst is behind you, and hopefully the car is not considered totaled.

I can see why the air bags didn't go off. From the looks of it, the front of your car was only clipped from an angle and not hit directly head on with sufficient force to activate the switch.

as long as she is going to be alright, might be a good thing or sorta. the car was knocking and on its last legs. the impala just messed up the bumper and the honda is totaled, i would never buy any small car again, no reason if they dont get any better mileage.
