I hate to say it but for several weeks (years) our van's steering wheel had a sticky spot. I put tape on it and it looked really classy - a bright blue to contrast with the black wheel.
While PN was here, he drove the van and discovered it was sticky, even with the tape solution.
Lee told him we had been going to buy one. Off to Walmart and we had a new cover! They were going to surprise me. I got into the van and saw this cardboard between the seats. My first thought was it was one of those things they used to put in a dress shirt that was for sale. (We haven't bought any dress shirts in some time so I don't know if they still do that or not.)
I turned it over and the big red letters identified it as a wheel cover. Then I saw the steering wheel. It looked like leather! Very thick and very black.
I am very happy.
Later:PN just texted this photo to me and asked if I wanted the blue sticky tape from the steering wheel back?
