Whilst I'm all in favour of ...perfection, the sanatized cleanliness of "newness" does nothing for me exept express a sameness as all the others were.
However ,show me some rust,wear,even to some extent missuse and my passion is aroused. This speaks to me of a life lived and to a degree an history beared witness to. Apart from which it makes me feel usefull! Nah gents it's the worn out for me!!!By the way frank those stocks are "to die for" I envy you! Cheers
