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?
I'm just fuckn' with you. A pre-paid sim card.
For a standard car, I wouldnt bother with much more than you already have.
The flashlight and map I would keep in the glove compartment along with a spare mainlight bulb and some spare fuses.
I`m a bit leary on the fix-o-flat foams and would probably carry a proper spare wheel and a jack instead. Keep the car normally clean inside and out and wax it as needed and I would say that you`re good to go. :-)
When expecting to produce trash, like when I have a runny nose and need tissues, I use a plastic grocery sack. They're basically free, and are immediately discarded once used.
I don't *keep* a trashcan in my car.
Sounds about the same as I`m doing, Chuck.
Because I have a dog, I normally have a roll of doggy bags (not the take out but the take up kind) in the car door and make use of those for littering of all kinds, supplemented with the grocery thingy when expecting more littering iow, the family on longer trips.
Have a roll of toilet paper. A pocket or utility knife is always a good thing to have. I have an led light you wind up and doesn't need batteries. Tissues, when I go to some places to get grub I take extra napkins. If you live in a place that gets snow always have a good scrapper, and jumper cables, especially if you drive a pickup. I also have tie downs in a under seat storage bin in case I agree to haul cargo.
Driving gloves are manly. I have a beautiful pair of Mad Max reproductions, and I wear them with pride.
Jumper cables. If you don't use them to save yourself you can use them to get man points whenever someone needs a jump. Get a heavy gauge set. Keep a rag or 2 for checking fluids. A small 12v compressor is handy at times also.
may not be manly, but i keep a flashlight, rain jacket, and a pocket knife or razor knife within arms length of me while i drive. i drove over a bridge everyday for most of my life and drowning because i'm stuck in my seat belt was a real concern.
