Ever had a low-rider wagon brandy? A funny-car chardonnay? How about a Formula 1 Caesar?
Now you can!
Combine old wine glasses with toy cars and create your own hot-rod glassware!

Make a few and turn your boring glassware cupboard into a garage full of speedy racers, ready for your favourite bevvy.
These glasses are great for parties, and by using different cars your guests will never have cup mix-up again.
Making your own is cheap, easy and fun!

Sugru was used as the bonding agent for this project, however you can substitute for two-part epoxy.
This instructable was entered in the Sugru Contest
 

Enough talk, let's vroom-vrooooom screeeeech *crash*!

Stemmed glassware can be found at any thrift store for under a dollar, ditto for the toy cars.

    tools:
  • old t-shirt or cloth
  • screwdriver
  • safety goggles
    materials:
  • toy cars (time to raid the toy chest!)
  • sugru (can also use epoxy)
  • glassware (your choice, thin-stemmed glasses work best)

Great idea. It's all ways hard to remember which glass is yours at a party. What about using silicon for the adhesive? They use it on rear view mirrors and regular mirrors. The hardest part for me, would be getting a hot-wheels car away form my grandsons. HA HA!! These would be great for us car guys. At car club meetings and car event get-togethers, they would be an awful lot of fun. How to choose the right car for yourself. There are so many to pick from. I am going to have to get to work on this one before our next meeting. Thanks for the great idea.
