Coupe Toupee

Don't let receding succeed. Look dashing when dashing.

The coupe toupee (to be marketed as the coop-toop in US) are a set of ergonomically designed hairpieces for drivers of flashy sports cars. The purpose of the said weave is to give confidence to the driver when travelling at speed in a car that he is likely to be in a strong wind (head out window or in a convertable).

There are two types. One with especially whispy hair so that drivers may go for the windswept look: surging through the wild wood with locks blowing lustrously. Another with thicker hair that is very styled and robust. The owner of this wig may speed through the country and get out of the car at the end of the journey with every last strand where he wants it to be (a la James Bond after every stunt)

A little off-topic, but good for a laugh [Canuck, Sep 04 2002, last modified Oct 05 2004]


       Ah, Mr Bond. Weave been expecting you. [+1]

       Excuse my ignorance, but HOW exactly do you attach a toupee, any toupee, not just yours, if you've got no hair there? Especially one that's going to be blown about during Bond car/speedboat chases and the like...

       Naw, with Coupe Toupee Goopé . . . .

       Special version for the drivers of convertible VW Beetles: "The Bug Rug"

       Aside from the name, how is this different from a regular toupee?
gootyam, Sep 03 2002

       If I catch the drift, [gootyam], it differs in that a "regular" toupee has no special aerodynamic properties, and as such would be prone to flying off to become roadkill under the wheels of the trailing vehicles.   

       The Coupe Toupee could easily be fastened down with - wait for it - flypaper! Unless one was into body piercings, in which case [PeterSilly]'s idea makes perfect sense.   

       My own personal vote is for the Bond Hair Helmet. The perfect male coif on a Ministry of Transport approved safety device. (See link to NHL Referee Kerry Fraser)

       Another method of securing said toupee could be very large straps. The straps could also be covered with hair, giving you the authentic 70's big sideburns/thick beard look.
PeterSilly, Sep 04 2002

       Now -that- I'd pay money to see!

       Hairy straps especially useful for ladies who don't want the toupee stapled to their bonces.
PeterSilly, Sep 04 2002

       Actually, on reflection, it seems to me that the whole point of being bald is so you can drive a convertible without worrying about your hair. So fishbone.
DrCurry, Sep 04 2002

       I hardly ever worry about my hair. But then again, I hardly ever drive a convertible.
