Since the ashtray thread was popular, how about some lighters?

I have my simple Bic, Benlow Golmet, Zippos, and some others. I enjoy my Ol Boy a lot. If I had to pick one--Probably a my pewter Ol Boy for indoors, and outside I gotta go with a zippo. Most times I reach for a weird off brand butane that can be refilled. It's hard to pick a favored lighter.

That is cool as hell. I need more info on that please.
As @pepesdad mentioned, it is a Scripto Vu-lighter. They came with all kinds of graphic inserts inside the fluid case including cool cars, hunting scenes, pinups(!), pipes as well as dice, fishing lures, etc. The pipe chimney version is less common but you can find them for cheap on Ebay and especially antique shops - shop near me has about 20 of them on display. The parts are mostly interchangeable. New gaskets are easy to find and they hold fluid a good long time with zero fluid smell if the gaskets are good.

My uncle had one that had a hula girl that undressed when you turned it upside down.

I am pretty partial to the Old Boy, although those new Bic EZ Reach lighters are pretty solid when I'm putzing around the yard
