What’s Your Favorite Driving Accessory?
I, like most of you, have covered a huge number of miles behind the wheel, beside the wheel, and in the back seat of a variety of vehicles. From desert racing Hummers to clapped-out rental karts, from museum-quality Porsches to rear-engined Tatras…it’s been fun.
Just not the Peel P50: that one’s pretty awful.
No matter what I’m driving, however, one thing is always in the car: my Persol PO9649 sunglasses. Yes, they’re expensive and could drop off my face at any moment. Yes, there are probably better sunglasses for driving out there. But as the acetate frame weathers over years of use, I’ve been leaving their earned, faded, wabi-sabi-like qualities intact. They’re worn-in sunglasses, if that’s even possible.
I spend long hours in front of the computer, so protecting my eyes will hopefully pay off later on in life. But over years of driving, I can say that sunglasses have been that one item I can’t leave home without.
What must be in your car before you hit the road?
