The classic shape of this Weber reminds me of a story... when I was a kid, back in the 70's, our neighbor flew home from Europe with a Weber executive. That year happened to be the 25th anniversary of the Weber grill.
Later that summer the most unusual thing showed up at the neighbors house, a gold plated anniversary Weber grill, gold plated!
Well, kids being kids, we got board that summer, threw rocks at it and chipped off as much of the gold plating as we could.
I wonder if any of the gold plated Webers still exist?
