More cupholders

I can't believe it. Driving my sister Ingrid (she's out from Sweden, she just got married) to the Macquarie Centre for lunch, I discovered that there are bottle holders in the passenger's and driver's side doors. They could hold cups if you took a sip or two first to make sure they didn't spill as you slid them under the interior door handle. Also, there is a circular ashtray in front of the gear stick which, with the aid of screwdriver, pliers and possibly tinsnips could be easily adapted to hold a cup.

So apart from the two cupholders that are already there in the front, there is a real possibility of an extra three, and that's only in the front. For a small car, that is quite amazing.

The actual car looks a bit like this.

For some reason the steering wheel in this car is on the wrong side, but if you look carefully you can see the bump in the passenger's side door pocket that is where you put your bottle. You know it is for a bottle because there is a little picture of a bottle embossed into the plastic nearby.
