Well if, with Dig's forbearance, an open sunroof counts, style #7 consisting of material #6. Said sunroof being open on all but the hottest of days.

Normally I wear a baseball cap but on the hottest days I also wear a woven hat thats like a cross bettween hats 6 & 8.

To stop the damn sunburn on the back of the neck:(

Cut me some slack here.

I had to leave some styles out cuz 10 choices is the maximum. I could have easily gone to 15 and maybe 20. Plus, you have to have a couple of gag choices.

Never wear a hat.....but usually wear a pair of sunglasses as it only ever goes out at the same time that the sun is.

Does anyone bother with driving gloves anymore?

Point of order Dig.....

do you mean the car is topless or the driver?

Quite apart from never wearing a hat in the R107 I always wear a shirt of some sort. If you look in the owner`s manual under etiquette this is the "bare" minimum expected of owners.

I frequently use fingerless fitness gloves (sorry about all the "f's") when I drive because I haven't found driving gloves locally. I'd like to try them on before I buy.

This is not a style choice. There is something in me that oozes out and eats steering wheels. I have a steering wheel cover wrapped around my Avalon's leather steering wheel because it got all toxified over time. Even my "Fred Sanford Edition" Ranger has a gunky steering wheel now. Due to the extreme graphic nature of this subject, there will be no pictures.

Maybe there's a cleaner that I can safely wipe the wheel with after I finish driving?

Any suggestions?

A non-leather steering wheel?

Driving more slowly?

I know, but at least I kept out of the start-up procedure thread.

Like your naughty-cul machine by the way. It`s a classic colour combination.

Just keep both hands on the wheel and you should be fine.

Ok, I get it and I'm laughing. Really.
Let me ask this question, though. When you're cruising along about 10 or 15 mph above the maximum legal speed limit for most countries, have you ever moved your outboard (left in the US) hand to rest comfortably on the top corner of the windshield, only to have the wind momentarily blow your hand back a foot or so before you can recover? Feel like an idiot when you do it for the third time? Do you nonchalantly act as though you really wanted to pat down the hair on the back of your head?

I'm old and weak...and forge...hey is that a bunny?
