About a couple weeks ago on Wednesday I got out of work early and had to high tail it out to Ballwin to catch the last few minutes of an estate sale before they closed (which turned out to be a dud.) Since I had some extra time before I had to go to the night job, I thought I'd check out a few thrifts I haven't been to in awhile. In one of them was this Decade 80 that has to be a Wards exclusive as it matches the 4445 Convertible which I know was for Wards, and a rarity as there were no Wards stores in the St. Louis metro area. It's got the 6 amp Power Surge, air freshener tab, similar hood to the dirt Cup Decades. Well worth $13 IMHO.

And a low serial to boot!

There won't be a glam action shot as 1. I ran out of replacement headlight bulbs and 2. I have it packed away for when I move out of my parents house (when I don't know, anyone have an extra $80000 to loan me? Eh, it was worth a shot lol..)

@alexb1186 Nice vacuum! I love the old Hoover's!

Doesn't this belong in the vintage section being that it's 31 years old?

It was only 23 years old when he made the post in 2010. Time flies by too fast!
