Lung, Anyone? Star Shark Ashtray

Valentine’s day usually results in a bunch of useless containers shaped like hearts. But here’s a much, much cooler container shaped like a Star Shark! It’s a vintage ashtray, still stamped with the original manufacturer, Colin, on the back. The opening bid right now is a mere ¥24,980, which converts to $322, or roughly the price of a real wheel. Not trying to drop a hint, but if we were to find one wrapped in a bow come February 14, we’d definitely put out.
