I'm going old school.

Definitely a tie between the model 65 in pink and the garland green model 66 with gold lettering and trim.

I have a 65 base that is very rough. Need to find a nicer machine and that green goddess that eludes us all.

my Hoover Deluxe Convertible. This is basically a Decade without a headlight and a shorter cord.

Kind of like picking a favorite child.  For me it would be the 69.  They had perfected by then.

My 32 is awfully pretty.  And a good cleaner as well.

I have to agree with John and Fred.

The 69 is my absolute favorite model with the 1070 as the runner up.

I don't much care for the "special" series.

I just couldn't get use to the idea of a Hoover upright without a headlight.

I often use the 69 at my daily driver.

Don't care much for the plastic and full hood version of the original '60s convertible series.

Just my thoughts.
