    Finally, after a long chase, 2914-3. It instantly became one of my favorites. Worn but honest example; everyone is crazy about lollipops but I really like this straight seconds too. It's very interesting how different it looks and feel from its little brother Ranchero, a difference I tried to grasp from pictures but I didn't quite get until I had it in hand.

    This is seriously one of the nicest cases. I never get bored of looking at mine and admiring the surface angles and reflections...
