Yea, that 1/4" deep cup holder doesn't do too well with a top heavy drink huh? Haha.

Yeah I remember seeing a write up on thirdgen.org for making one. It was a pain. I always just bought drinks in sealed containers lol.

Nice car! Those are decently quick for what they are. The exhaust note of them is amazing too. Much better than any GM 6 cylinder. My sister has the Dodge variation of that (Intrepid R/T) which I have driven a few times and its pretty nice. I was mostly impressed by the handling of it on the backroads for such a big sedan.

Better yet a 700r4 with a reverse pattern manual valve body is even more fun.
got a link for that kit?
