quote:I still smoked cigs when I got my first plane. One day I asked the A&P about the potential harm that the cigarette smoke could do to the vacuum system, gyros, etc. He gave me a funny look and said cigarette smoke would not harm the vacuum system or anything else in the airplane nearly as much as it would harm my lungs. So, I would not worry about the ashes on the dashboard or any other part of the car. I quit smoking cigarettes the day I was told I had non-hodgkins lymphoma, but, once I got over that, I took up cigars. I will smoke in my old 90 Jag, but not the newish one, in the older 96 Chevy Blazer, but not the newish S-10, and not at all in the new GTO.
Originally posted by Lumberg: I smoke cigars on occasion, and being busy, I tried smoking in the cigar sometimes. It wasn't the smell I minded so much (you expect that) but the fact that little pieces of ash would get on the dashboard. What do you guys do?
