This might be one of the few scenarios where an LCP or similar on a left ankle would work. OR wearing something in a cross draw holster left side. Or carrying in a "car jacker" style holster.

If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

Many years ago I actually saw somebody get hit in the backside/side of the head with a baseball bat. Given the fact it was not a full contact the guy who got hit dropped like a bag of rocks. I will never forget the look in the guy who swung it eyes. It was a "oh shoot I just killed this guy." He was scaried.

I went back and reread the OP. It seems to me that I as the passenger have three options, given my age and physical condition.

Personally I'd choose 3. It seems to be the safest option.
P.S. I have never been attacked by someone wielding a bat, but if I was this is what I would try to do. I would do everything possible to protect my head and neck while trying to create space and time to access my weapon. I would gladly sacrifice a couple of ribs before I would take a head shot. Generally I would say circle away from the direction where the swing is coming from and stay on your feet no matter what. If that means sacrificing a limb, so be it. You can take a pretty solid blow to an arm if it is done correctly and it is possible to cover your head and neck area with your upper arm, lower arm, and shoulder which is much tougher than your lower arm alone.
If it takes you 2 seconds to effect your draw that means you be able to inflict significant damage on this guy in 3 or 4 seconds. Keep moving and if you did your job he'll run out of gas soon.
Not to get into specific techniques but this would be a serious fight and you might not come out unscathed if you didn't see it coming in time.
Remember, you are the good guy. Never give up. Always find a way to win.
