Reminds me of something on the History channel, I can't remember the particular show, but one of the conversations with a German automotive engineer when he was first asked about cupholders had the response of, essentially "Why would you want that, you are DRIVING."
It just wasn't something that was considered until recently. I can't remember any in a 1985 Mustang, nor in a 1989 Accord. Of course now you see them clipped to motorcycle handlebars.
