Dr. Timothy Lang removed the lever Wednesday during a 45-minute operation. Lampitt, now 75, is recovering at home.

I have to laugh... I saw this posted a few days ago... but seeing the headline the first thing I thought was, “Well, if they are taking the turn signal off the column, where are they gonna put it? First they take the highbeam switch off the floor... now this?!? Great.”

Now that is Ford craftsmanship.

Did not know that the turn signal lever was made from surgical steel.

Flipping amazing I tell you!!!!
