The “classic chrome model” a fantastic piece of simple engineering that will quite literally last a lifetime.
As we always do, we started by researching the old school versions that every Gas station & Supper club made as promos for their VIP customers. Then did a range of graphics, took a vote - and this is the design y’all picked!
