Here’s Why I Smoke Cigars in My Car… Do You? We Want to Know! – And Hey… Win Some Swag Here!

I smoke cigars in my car, and I love it. Now I realize many of you may not and that’s a shame. So, your wife, girlfriend, kids hate the smell, yeah, yeah. Tell me about it. My girlfriend hates cigars and the smell and everything about it, but I don’t care because I love to smoke in my car.

Short trips mean a small cigar. Long trips mean a toro or larger. Multiple hour trips mean multiple cigars. It’s all really pretty simple. Listen, I know my car smells like a stogie so we take my girlfriend’s car whenever we go out. And this is why many of you don’t or won’t light up while driving. But for those of you who do smoke in their cars, well, you completely understand the love and the passion behind it. To me, it’s like having a buddy with you along for the ride. And for the record, I love the stank of my smoky bud.

A couple of my pals have really nice cars that they smoke in, like two dudes I know with older Corvettes. One guy has a red 1957 convertible and a 1963 split window in black that he brings to car shows every weekend in the spring through the fall. And when he drives to the show, he smokes a big-ass stogie the entire way and doesn’t give a crap what anybody thinks or says. The other guy owns a gorgeous green ’68 Stingray and the inside smells like a cigar lounge and he wouldn’t have it any other way (these are real tears in my eyes, honest).

So I asked my buddies if they had a brand-new mid-engine Vette would they still smoke in it and both said, YES without a doubt, as would I as well (and I sure as hell would like one of these beauties). Now the 2020 Corvette starts out at a base model price of $59,995 which is pretty damned surprising. A Lambo or a Ferrari costs a couple $100,000 more and who needs that when you can have a spectacular new C-8 Chevy to call your very own (unless the mortgage and the rest of your bills get in the way – I get it.). At 495 horsepower and zero to 60 in 2.8 seconds I think you’d impress a lot of guys but add in a Room 101 Farce or a Prensado Lost Art and I think the “I’m impressed level” raises substantially.

What really does matter as far as the smell in your car goes is if you’ve got leather or cloth seats. There’s no getting around the fact that cloth is going to absorb the stink. Depending on how hot or cold it is outside, I always open the windows (front and back) as much as possible. And putting the air or heat on up top tends to absorb the smoke even more, so I will put it on at the feet if I’m firing up. And one thing that does seem to help the stink are the couple of Bounce drier sheets I place under the seats in my car, it really does work!

Yeah, I really do love to smoke in my car. Hey, let us know in the comments section below is you do or don’t smoke while you drive and why not!

Until next time,

Yep, I smoke in the car. A robusto does the trick to get me to work, and another on the way back, as my commute is about an hour or so each way. Living in SoCal, sig alerts happen frequently, so I’m never without my herf. It curbs the road rage.

Yup. Love having a cigar in the car. Open windows and sunroof as much as possible. Auto air filter works well as well (the type plugged into DC port).

Something about smoking a cigar makes the drive more pleasant.

I’ve smoked cigars for over 25 years. I don’t smoke in my Mustang for the same reason I don’t smoke in my house – I don’t want them to smell like an ashtray.

My Irish grandfather had a 1950s Oldsmobile, that was his pride and joy. He loved to drive that car and light up a stogie. (My uncle living in Tampa, kept him supplied with good cigars.) One of my earliest memories is the smooth, aroma of the interior and upholstery of that car! I’ve been smoking cigars for 53 years, and yes as soon as I got my first car! Smoking and lingering scent of cigars has a calming, Zen like effect on me. Helps to keep my road rage in check!

My wife tolerates my cigars. I, in return, love her all the more for it but I’m also smart enough to know when not to push it. I never know when the situation will dictate that she has to drive my car. So I refrain. We both understand I’ll get my opportunity and will make the best of it. Love, toleration and respect come in many opportunities.

Love my car ‘gars; wife says no smoking in the house so my Mazda is my own little travelling lounge on wheels. It’s a fun way to enjoy a stick sometimes and I have discovered many smaller stogies that I otherwise might have overlooked!

stay smokey friends

I Serve Subpoenas for a living and I’m a Radio Personality, I drive a Ford Explorer Police Interceptor, It’s relaxing for all the hours I drive to relax and smoke a cigar while driving. And nothing else say I don’t give a crap about your problems as having an Opus X sticking out of your mouth when you serve someone and tell them to ”HAVE A NICE DAY”

I start each day off by hopping into my 2017 Nissan Titan with a Toro and a travel mug of coffee. My windows are always cracked and there is no better feeling of solitude than being on the road and not many if any vehicles to share it with. But the single greatest Cigar in a car story I have is last summer I put a shine on MY WIFES 1967 Mustang convertible and took her for a date. After a few cocktails with dinner we put the top down and I had my travel humidor with me. I shot… Read more »

Hell yes! Before I retired I lit up on the way to work, at lunch I would go to a shop 5 minutes from my office and finish the churchill on the return trip. Another quick smoke on the way home. Likewise multihour trips are just opportunities for me to enjoy a smoke in the car. My opinion is they make the ride go faster.

Yessir I do! Got about a 40 min ride to work, so a small RG does the trick. All windows a crack open usually airs it out pretty good so the future wife doesnt complain much lol

I do for a much simpler reason; it’s my GD car. Lol But I do agree that the cigar i smoke is based on distance.
