Ugly, but I wonder what lurks beneath on the black one.....

I think they're kinda' cool. 

Not my preferred aesthetic, but none the less, the more dial phones in circulation, the better.  Someone who buys one of these is going to discover the joys of good audio, good ergonomics, and long conversations without cutoffs. 

The next thing you know, they might even start hanging out here.

As far as I can tell from the "free" reverse directories online, the phone number on the zebra phone is an active land line in Minneapolis, MN.  See also this thread:   http://www.classicrotaryphones.com/forum/index.php?topic=1351.0
