Avoiding door scratches on a Boss 302

My own custom technique, if it can be called as such.  It does work.
"Low she sits on five spoke wheels
Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Good advice, Richard.  Agreed on the typical "passenger door" scratches, as you aptly noted.

I like your Gulf driving suit.  Perfect for your next court date.  Especially if you're the defendant in a 150 mph speeding trial.

Oh, I obey all speed laws. I did do 125 in my Saleen Mustang once. Now was that mph or kph?

Look into car door cup protectors, there are multiple sources out there via internet.
Here is one of those resources:     https://lamin-x.com/door-cup-handle-guards/

Hey, that's a smart option.  Then you don't have to police your passenger (if you have a passenger) making sure they don't scratch your door.  Other way around it is to open the passenger door for them every time but these days, such a gesture might be met with outward hostility.  Tis a strange world in which we live.

These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS
