Very clever! I'm going to zip on over to zippo's website to see more. Ain't just us oldsters owned zippos. Most veterans had one. The pentagon frowns upon disposable butane lighters.

Love it! One of my treasured vintage possessions is a turquoise and white zippo Newport cigarette lighter from the 60s. I used it when I was a smoker many, many moons ago.

Nice take.
I've got a couple of Zippos laying around. In my smoking days, that's all I used.
(Butane lighters were not allowed on submarines.)

When I smoked, there was no better way to torch than to use a Zippo.

The only problem is that eventually I would lose them and replacing rare or unusual Zippo's was somewhat costly.


Cool zippyness for your MM.
