Lol, my Expedition has 2 cupholders in the console, a cupholder in each door, two fold out ones for the first bench passengers and IIRC there are two on each side for the rear bench for a total of what like 12? However all I will need is that rear cupholder in the new console to make my Mustang commute world complete.

And LMAO on having to get out between laps. At least I'm not the only one who has to go like every half hour when I'm drinking those bigass drinks...

I guess the lesson from all of this is: If we want well placed cupholders, we have to start driving bigger vehicles.

But yeah I hear you in that I'll have to get used to the drinks being there. Hell I'm going to need to get used to the drink being there PERIOD. When I did my black interior the parts were from a 95 so my 98 cupholders went away. Then I cut up the 95 console to put my 98 cupholders back in and they still suck especially with my shifter modded 1.5" further back it just slams into anything in the front and the back holder... I dunno who thought a shallow wide one was a good idea for anything unless they were like stacking cookies in it or something... This 01 console will only ever see anything in the rear cupholder, mostly coffee with lids. My carpet is ACC carpet and if I goober it up over the course of a few years I can just buy another one. Seats are vinyl and will not absorb spills.


Too f-ing funny!!!

Cool

If you are having trouble with your arm hitting the drinks in your cup holder, just find a fabricator to make a longer shift lever and have him put a bend about two thirds of the way up to bring the lever to the left. You will have no more spilled drinks. If you cannot find a fabricator, send a suggestion to American Muscle and they may design and build a taller shift lever for all who have problems with drinks in cup holders.

Solid idea, but I think the midified shift lever would look funny, so I'll go with the lesser of two evils and just not drink anything in the car

That steering was a nightmare in parking lots but at speed? Mother of God. I quit giving an auto shop my business because they tried to tell me there was play in my steering column and I needed a new power steering pump. There was no play, a flick of the wrist would swerve me through traffic, and they never came with power steering...lol. Never spun mine, the tires in back were too tall to break loose trying to powerslide around an awkward U-turn at the auto-x course.

The funnest cars shouldn't have them. If it comes with stiff suspension and/or high horsepower, I don't even want to be tempted to carry an open drink in it.

fix for cup holder in 2010-14 Mustang

There is a cup holder out there for the 2010-14 Mustang that helps with the shifting. It moves drinks to behind the console and either front or rear passengers can use it. Check out the youtube video attached.

The idiot that decided to put cup holders in cars needs to be shot.

One thing I like about a muscle car with a manual transmission is that I don't ever HAVE time to do anything but drive. If I don't pay attention for two seconds, it wants to run me right off the road.

I bought 2 of these. They work great, are stainless steel, and you can bend them to fit ANY sized cup/can/bottle/mug.
