I'm working on a tweed case for it so you can slide it under the bed for 30 years.

You're going to need one hell of an arm to send that one sanding itself down the driveway surface.

Was heading out to Bethells when it was gravel roads in a 60's VW. Steering wheel came away from the column and the driver was left holding it in mid air. We went straight trough the fence and into a tree. Instant Clapton relic. We left a crate of Waitemata Sparkling Ale by the broken fence for the farmer. Ahh..those were the days.
