I just joined the forums the other day and I am so happy to find a place where fellow vacuum aficionados can share info! I have been collecting for about a year now, I am especially fond of elektrikbrooms and old electrolux, but love all old vacuums! Pictured below are two vacuums I got for FREE the other day. They were out for garbage pickup along with other odds and ends as the family had recently moved away. One is a Hoover portapower S1015 w/the box and attachments! The other is a Eureka model 2042 D. They both work excellent and at the price I could not go wrong. I look forward to seeing many of your treasures as well!

Welcome to the forum.  Great catch you made there, and the price can't be beat!  That Hoover with all the attachments plus the box is especially nice.

I have that same model portapower, and absolutely love it! I use it almost daily for cleaning rugs and cars, and our boat.

I have the box somewhere, but it isn't nearly as nice as yours!

Welcome to the forum Derek, those were two great finds. That Hoover looks to be in near new condition. Give some thought to joining the VCCC, I am sure you would enjoy our newsletters and the convention which will be in Minneapolis this year.
