Any other diesel drivers who love good cigars?

Just curious. Do any of you diesel drivers smoke a good cigar in your car once in a while? I've only smoked a stogie in mine once. Normally I don't smoke in the car.

My all time favorite is the Avo Uvezian Maduro. La Gloria Cubana is my second favorite.

Never, ever any smoking in car...but, I will, on rare occasion, have a pipe in the TOAD or a big fat seegar like a Macanudo Maduro (Churchill) out on the deck.

I haven't yet and probably won't. I want to enjoy the cigar with a cold glass of milk and not have to worry about someone cutting me off.

Me no smoky stogie.
Me like Diesel smoky.
I have, however, felt for quite some time that companies with "no smoking" policies should make an exception: that smoking of cigars, both good and bad, be allowed in the rest rooms. It is preferable, n'est ce pas?

I love the occassional good cigar with a fine port, but never in my car. The only thing I want my car to smell like is MB-Tex.

Talking Sheep vs. Goats

For some reason, a good cigar tastes good but smells bad.

Some have likened it to the south end of a north bound goat. No, I didn't ask them how they knew.

I have sheepskin seat covers and the two would never agree.

(Sorry, it has been one of those days and just had to lighten things up!)

Seems like 90% of the Diesels I've worked on were owned by Cigar smokers, and I always equate that smell to them. the first one I ever worked on was for a sports writer for the Chicago Tribune, back in the late 70's (a 115 if I remember correctly) and when my wife and I were out looking for a Jeep and stumbled on this 300D as soon as I opened the door it had that smell. We brought it home that day, I have smoked a few Mac Minnies in it since and it doesn't mind a bit, nice to have that big sun(cigar)roof!!

Aromatically yours, James

I smoke in mine and out of it also. My #1 Favorite is your no.2-"La Gloria Cubana"--no. 52-Torpedos. #2-Arturo Fuente--no.52--Unlike a Women, the fatter a Cigar, the better.

Kind of disappointed with the Cuban Cohibas(torpedo#52) and $100 for a box of 25 in the Havana Airport.

I love a good cigar and don't have any problems smoking in the car. With the sunroof open of course.
I prefer Nicarguan cigars. If I had to pick a favorite it would be Boc.

I get e-mails from JR Cigars with specials every week. Some of them are really good deals.

There is only one Cigar I care for ... and quite frankly, I would not want him in my car:

I enjoy a cigar now and then, but not in the car. Too messy. Besides, smoking a nice cigar is good "thinking time," best done in a quiet place, away from the traffic and bad drivers that get me into a lather. I've also recently started smoking a pipe, and find that it's much more enjoyable than a cigar in some ways.

I like to smoke cigars, as well as other things, in my car.
I burn a little Nag Champa incense now and then to help mask the smell

Not to hijack your thread but don't you enjoy it and have a bit of fun when some anal retentive objects to your smoking in lawful places?

In Delaware there is a law disallowing smoking in public buildings of any sort. As an athlete/non-smoker, I enjoy not having to be smoked out of my favorite restaurants. That said, I think it's a total violation of vendors' rights to ban smoking from BARS. To me, if a guy owns a sports bar, he ought to be allowed to decide on his own if he wants smoking, instead of the state deciding. It's a bar, for crying out load. Those with smoke sensitivities can steer clear if they don't like it. If I go to the racetrack or a club, I don't complain about the smoke, because heck, what do you expect at those places? The only place I'll get bent out of shape is as GAS STATIONS, where I have seen way, way too many stupid people smokin' away at the pump. One guy threw a burning butt about five feet from the propane tank rack! I digress ...

Same law in California and even as a smoker, I agree with it for the most part. Bar owners should get to choose.

The best thing that has happened out here is no smoking on the beach. It's not the clean air issue there. It's the millions of cigarette butts that arseholes toss anywhere when they are finished with them.

Also: toss a butt out the window on the freeway and you get to enjoy a $1000 fine, plus court greed assessments.

Smoking near gas pumps, eh? Some fool friend of mine was driving a fuel delivery truck for Chevron and one night he thumped a live butt out his window which hit a CHP cruiser's windshield.
