Re: Quick Release Steering Wheel

What a lovely attitude. My answer to you is ...no. Stop interrupting ????? Its a written format....how do you interrupt someone ?? Holy smokes !! They are a waste of time and money, and if I can enlighten only one or two , perhaps new E_Type owners , then I feel pretty good about that. Its a forum.....

Re: Quick Release Steering Wheel

Paul......are you really afraid your E-Type is going to get stolen ?? Do you have vintage, or classic car insurance ? Know why fire & theft insurance is so cheap on E-Types ? Because its so very rare that one is stolen. Is it worth going through the money, installation,carrying the wheel around with...

Re: Quick Release Steering Wheel

Well a removable steering wheel is not going to stop anyone determined to steal an E-Type. The steering wheel has nothing to do with the ignition, and starting the car. The E is notoriously easy to jump start without a key. The very few E-Types that are stolen around the world are usually stolen on ...

Re: Quick Release Steering Wheel

Wrong...I think driving an E-Type is the greatest theft protection. Even an idiot thief would think twice before stealing the most recognizable car in the world. Get picked up by any competent police force in 5 minutes. Where in the good Lord's name are you leaving your car, that someone would try t...

Re: Quick Release Steering Wheel

Steve.....you are absolutely correct !! That is the only answer...just a matter of taste. In fact, I believe the real allure, and its a compelling one, to the wheel and its quick release, is just another gadget in a car where gadgets are always welcomed !! LOL I would bet, that months after install,...

Re: Quick Release Steering Wheel

Your remarks, of course, make no sense . You think owning an E is risky ?? Due to this imaginary risk you speak of, you think the E is not for me? Read past posts. Risk adverse...read past posts. Steering wheel not designed to take the relatively light pull or push of an owner getting in the car ? R...

Re: Quick Release Steering Wheel

A wheel lifting up out of the way to ease getting in, or out of the car , has absolutely nothing to do with a removable wheel. The wheel is still there, just at a different angle. I would also question the safety of a steering wheel that could be damaged simply by grabbing it has you get in and out ...

Re: Quick Release Steering Wheel

One more question...if you remove the steering wheel for security reasons....when ? In your garage under lock and key? If you are out and about, and your E is in a less then a safe environment, do you carry it around with you, lock it in the trunk ??.. Curious. Also, I'm 6'3, and never have a proble...

Re: Quick Release Steering Wheel

In regards to security, have you had that many attempts to steal your E ? As for getting in and out, I always felt that grabbing the wheel was more of a help, rather then a hindrance. Thanks for your answers gentlemen.

Re: Quick Release Steering Wheel

Hello all my fellow E-Type lovers.....once again, I have a question that I hope someone can answer. Never too old to learn. The question is simply.....why ?? Why would you go to the trouble and expense of adding a quick release to a street car ?? In my early days, I professionally drove Formula Atla...

Re: thicker Moto-Lita steering wheel

Looking at all the steering wheel choices, all beautiful, I think at the end of the day, you can not make a bad, or mis-guided decision. Its like asking the forum what tie to wear to the reading of the will of your late mother-in-law........no such thing as a bad choice.
Enjoy !
