Dress up like the Stig. White helmet, white fire suit, white gloves and white boots.

My friend and I actually did that one time when we were driving home from the track one day. It was hilarious all the looks and pointing fingers. Unfortunately, the cops didnt think so and pulled us over to tell us to take them off. Said it was a visual impairment or something. I laughed and said that every race car driver must be visually impaired on the racetrack then and nobody clued them in. He didnt like that answer but luckily let me go on my way.

Needless to say Ive still wanted to do this again.

I am now considering these.

I prefer not to wear gloves. I like to feel that steering wheel and every bump and vibration. Oh yeah baby.

I think it's definitely time for me to go home.

If my hands are cold when I get into the car on a cold winter day, I wear REAL gloves; not Formula 1 wannabe gloves. Too 70ish for me.

As soon as the interior heats up, I take the gloves off and drive.

If that's the case, then why do those of us with bikes (2006 Ducati 749 dark) have to wear helmets? If they pull you over again ask why they don't pull over every motorcycle rider.... But then again I'm a dick to cops - law school has jaded me I think.

I drive with something like these on really hot or really cold days, but only until the car becomes more comfortable. Those aluminum trims on the side of the door become very cold as well (another part of the car)

They dont pull over motorcycle riders because theres no cage with a,b and c pillars to block more of the view. (Nice bike btw )
