Of course the Amarican car buying public are going to love that, it's totally top heavy, it's perfect! not only can you tip sideways, but end over end as well, so as long as it has enough cup holders, and you can see over the roof of the car in front of you, it should sell.

Cup holders with gimballed fittings anyone?

No wait I could be onto something here...(wanders away muttering darkly to self)..."of course it so obvious. Cup holders are where the money is....."
