What are some things to keep in my car to make my car have the "art of manliness"?

Like, what should I have in my glove glove? Should I hang anything from the rear view? and any other car accessories should I have?

I have a drop kit in my car with the drop kit essentials. I'm debating whether or not to keep a change of clothes in a weekender bag in the trunk.

I have another duffel bag with: Fix-o-flat, air gauge, gloves, folding poncho, flashlight, paper map, umbrella, and duct tape.

How else could I upgrade what I already have?

Have a bumper sticker that says "My Other Ride Is A Pussay."

Change of clothes, Duct tape and gloves? Do you rape the hitchhikers before or after you kill them?

Change of clothes is if I ever get soaked in the rain. Duct tape for a repair long enough to last until I get to the mechanic. Ever heard of driving gloves?

Unless you're driving an Aston Martin DB5 convertible in the English countryside, i'd lose the driving gloves.

I always keep a cell phone charger and a silver mylar steering wheel cover handy, too.

 

Texas has 10 months of "summer" weather.  That steering wheel gets hot, hot, HOT!

 

Oh, and vise-grips.  Might not be a perfect tool, but it's a "catch all" when you're missing the right one.

My steering wheel cover is a lifesavor! And that visegrip should be a good investment, thank you

Steering wheel covers are accidents waiting to happen unless they're laced on.  Seen it several times.

We're talking about different things.

 

When it's 120F outside, and you park in the sun, the steering wheel can get too hot to handle.  This steering wheel cover is a slip on cover that is put on while parked, to reflect the heat away from the steering wheel.

 

It comes off when I start the car.

I've never seen one of those mylar covers in the frozen north Chuck. I'm referring to the cheezy rubber steering wheel covers with designs like flames, hello kitty, etc. that just slip on the wheel. They slip off during quick turns. Mostly see them on teenage girl's cars as we roll up to the accident scene.

Here, asphalt is a (think) liquid for a good portion of the year.  And the greenhouse windows on a car can make even *touching* the steering wheel a painful experience. 

 

Once you've been branded by the seatbelt buckle, you know it's summer in Texas.

Holy crap!  Thanks for that info. Ours are coming off as soon as I get home.  

I drive a Ford Mustang GT, sir.

Vintage or new ?
