My oldest object is a pair of brown leather driving gloves my older brother gave me for Christmas 18 years ago. They've been well used in other cars along the way, and also on long trips in the 80. Still in great shape.
The torque wrench in my tool box That my father bought sometime in the late 60s and I Borrowed on a no return basis.
next to that would be the elephant that hangs form my rear view mirror that I wore on a necklace since I was 15.
What the heck is a "cup holder rug insert"? I have 2 cupholders with no insert, and a roughly square "junk holder" that has a carpet insert. Did I get ripped off, or in this day of huge fast food gulps has that "junk holder" been renamed??
Agree those things hardly qualify as cupholders. The rig was designed just before it became an industry obsession to have as many cupholders as possible in every vehicle. Nothing fits in those darn things except a bike style water bottle because it will flex as you shove it in. Not worth screwing with, mine has random junk in it.
Doug, it's the square hole in the front of the console. My tag line stems from an old thread where Dan produced a p/n for someone for the little carpet square that goes in the bottom. If you throw a few receipts in there for padding it will hold a grande pretty good, and it's the only "cupholder" that the passenger can reach (and she needs her coffee).
I don't know what toyota calls any of the things that serve as potential cup holders in an 80, and I agree that two of them are pretty flawed, but at least they are still there 11 years later and as "functional" as original which is more than you can say for the cupholders in my forester (in dash cd tray style holder jams and spills easily, console holder only holds large drinks, and rear double floor cupholder did not survive a 4 year old stepping on it)
least in the 80 they made an improvement in the "cupholder"
in the 60 you have to reach almost behind you to get your drink and they both sit together, there isnt any hole in the front. and my 71's cup holder is one of those McDonald lawsuits waiting to happen
