1996 Lexus ES 300: Must Wear Gloves

June 30, 2012

At least germaphobes would need to anyway. Even I will admit the steering wheel is a bit gross the way it's falling apart, and it pains me to think about how many different hands have been grappling with it over the years.<

So what do I do?

Well I don't wear gloves, that's for sure. After all, we spend our days making fun of those sissies who show up at local car gatherings with their "driving" gloves, usually in Ferraris and cars of that ilk.

No, what I do is I just try not to think about it. And I keep my hands at 9 and 3 where they belong.
