I'm lucky when it comes to cupholders

I consider myself a very lucky person ... when it comes to cupholders. When I first got my driver's license I was fortunate enough to be able to use my dad's Dodge Intepid to drive to high school every day. I always enjoyed the comfortable feeling I got when driving that vehicle with a drink. I wasn't worried at all about that thing spilling. After a while we went out and bought a Ford Escort for me to drive to school. It, too, had quite the luxurious cup holding apparatus.

Almost two years ago now, I bought my Acura and have never looked at another cupholder since. The cupholder in my Integra is a pull out tray that just has two holes cut in it. Then the cup or can itself rests on the console with the stick-shift on it. It's perfect! It holds anything from a small can of soda to an XL from Carls Jr.

I've been in my friends' cars when we go to the drive-thru and I'm just embarrassed of their cupholders. They end up putting drinks in the CD compartments or between there legs. That just won't do.
