This actually happened to me just the other day in my '70. Did you have to replace the whole column to fix it?

The episode aired on 5/4 in the UK and you can download it via various torrent sites. Your car is used prominently on the opening of the show. Congrats!

Image quality is probably due to Kodachrome.My guess is it was taken with a Leica, using Kodachrome. Wink
