... which, of course, is really a Westinghouse. I've had a specimen of that model for many years, having found one in a Long Beach thrift shop some time in the late 1980s. I have the complete attachment set for it, including the cardboard carry-all. However, the machine itself is only in fair condition. So when I saw Mark Berger was offering a very nice machine, motor only, I was happy to make him an offer on it.

And here it is.

I only wish I had somewhere to play with and display it... The other machine and the attachments are packed away in my storage unit.

"One of these days......."

It's really a beautiful, dramatically designed vacuum cleaner. I just love its "Space Age" aesthetic!

I've also seen a episode with Ricky vacuuming with a Hoover. That Westinghouse is very nice, reminds me of an Electrolux.

I may well do that John, since this machine is so nice.
