My daily driver is my Kirby Sentria. I bought in June and I finally got around to making it look... well... Normal.

I bought it for $40 on Craigslist and it was god awful condition. They over-filled the HEPA bag with cat litter and so it ripped and covered the bag in it. They left it outside, never cleaned it, and just treated it like a normal plastic vac.

When I got it I tore it completely apart and cleaned the insides. There was enough to make me spend almost 4 hours scrubbing.

I'm guessing that if you leave the Sentria bag in sunlight it turns pink? Surprisingly, it's the only thing I had to replace.

Anyway, this post was just about the final product. I don't actually have a picture of it when I first got it.

I saw one Saturday at a yard sale

That looked new for 50.00, I know that was a great deal, but I left it, short on cash .

That's unfortunate. I really love my Sentria, including since Tech Drive is so much quieter than my dad's G5 or G6. Those things sound like screeching bats.
