A Canoe with wheels?  
I don't have a pipe that floats.

I'd be afraid of an ember getting blown out of the bowl and setting it on fire.

Rust wouldn't be a concern but wood worm would.

From an engineering perspective, imagine all that wood expanding and contracting as the weather changes. Surely this wouldn't work in an appliance that has such low tolerances?

Toyota Schmoyota--I prefer one of these. Incredibly wealthy, I seek out the rare, the exotic, the unobtainable to haul around my vast stash of Penzance and artisan pipes made by hunchback Russian expatriates with pronounced limps and speech impediments. Nothing else will do! 1924 Hispano-Suiza Tulipwood Torpedo, model H6C, with brass rivets, of course.

Sigh, back when cars were still built by coach builders. That beauty placed well in several cross country races when she was new. Glad to see someone thought enough of her to preserve her. I've seen some very rare cars that were left to the elements and the cost to bring them back makes the national debt look doable.

This pre-war Cadillac with a chauffeur would suit me nicely (from the Rockville MD car show 2015).



Perhaps for every day use, a Packard.




One Maryland collector, in his 90's brought both of those cars and about six more, same era, same condition.
