Important? Seriously? I have been going there for 32 years and this is the first time I have seen them or even knew they existed. Yup, they are truly a thing to be missed. Another thought here, I don't see it as ever being an important thing anymore. Since they have stopped letting people ride up front it isn't even visible for most people. They did, however, as someone mentioned, use it internally for the carpeting where people actually do see it and can appreciate it. Wouldn't that be better?
