I'm undecided. I don't dislike them, but I wouldn't say that I love them.

I really don't "love" them as my vote might indicate, but I do appreciate the nod back to the '69.

I actually tried putting the stickers on... and that was the whole problem, they were stickers. But to each his own.

I too wish they were functional. They're pointless pretty (like the mail slot) now.
