On occasion, I enjoy a relaxing time with a cigar on the back porch. I've
not smoked in my ride because of the likely stench and because,
well, a guy smoking a cigar in a convertable seems a bit pretentious.
Nonetheless, I am drawn to the idea and am seeking opinions.

Smoking a cigar: YES. Together with a good Grappa or Brandy. Means: Never in a car.

i love a good cigar, but would never smoke one in my slk, due to smell and ash getting everywhere. i do smoke cigarettes in my car, but hover it all the time, so i dont find it affects smell or dirt atall.

Cigar smoking got popular a few years ago.

Now that the popularity has worn off you just have to love it to do it.:(

I have to laugh when I see a fella with something that big in their mouth! :biglaugh: Especially if they are driving! :biglaugh: :biglaugh:

I play poker with guys that smoke cigars...I just gotta laugh.:biglaugh:

If you are 6ft 6in tall and 300lbs...then it kinda fits the profile of the person. :Beer: otherwise.... LOL

So I would say for sure not in your car. :)

Just my humble opinion.

Since Grandpa caught me an my cousins behind the pack house smokin his cigars at age 8 or so and had us puff hard and fast on them, no way have I smoked anything. Got sick that day, best lesson he ever taught us. He did allow us to speriment with chewing tobacco years later while workin the tobacco fields and I have enjoyed chew since. Smokin in a car or in the house will ruin the upholstery, a non smoker can tell in an instance if a car has been smoked in. I bought a 67 Corvette from a smoker in 1977 and had the entire interior replaced including the dash and instruments. Now 30 years later I still think I can smell the cigarettes(subconciously anyway). :biglaugh::biglaugh::tu:

Thanks for the feedback thusfar. Actually,
I'm surprised with the early polling results.
Not that I didn't think this was a hygiene
conscious crowd. . .

I don't normally smoke cigars but on new year's eve and special occassions when my friends give me one then I'll smoke it. I have no problems with someone smoking a cigar in their cars, I don't think of them in any negative/positive way except, he's got some cleaning to do.

Got sick thet day, bess lesson he evah taught us. He did aller us t'speriment wif chewin' tobaccy years later while wawkin th' tobaccy fields an' ah have injoyed chew on account o'. Smokin in a car o' in th' house will ruin th' upholstery, a non smoker kin tell in an instance eff'n a car has been smoked in, as enny fool kin plainly see. ah bought a 67 Co'vette fum a smoker in 1977 an' had th' entire interio' replaced includin' th' dash an' instroomnts. Now 30 years later ah still reckon ah can smell th' cigarettes(subconciously ennyway).:biglaugh::biglaugh::tu:

Woolly, sometimes its tough t'unnerstan' whut yo' say in "English" terminology let alone pudn a suthrn spin t'it...:biglaugh:
ah w'd love t'knows whar th' American accent comes fum. ah was born an' raised in Co. Durham, in th' pore impovahished No'th East of Englan'. Mah Paw was an 'Old Colonial' Arjuntinian, mah mum was fum Kerry in SW Eire. 30 miles up th' road (in Noocastle) th' local accent is Geo'die, 30 miles south th' accent is broad Yawkshire - both of which kin be unintellygible. In Durham,,we nearly speak 'Queens English'(at least in th' south of Durham). When yo' lissen t'th' fust 'Talkies' - Laurel & Hardy, other early movies - all th' acko's spoke wif a Brit accent. About 20 years ago, on th' BBC, ah heard a tape of local Noofoun'lan' varmints. When th' tape was speeded up it soun'ed like a Galway (mid wess coast of Eire) accent. ah knows thet th' USA is a trimenjus meltin' pot of menny diffrunt varmintss & cultures, but it strikes me as odd thet in th' 60 years on account o' th' fust talkin movies, thar is suddenly a distinck 'American' accent.:eek:fftopic::eek:fftopic:
