Here is something I thought up a few minutes ago, and hopefully it will work out!

Basically, choose one of your vintage cleaners, clean it up really well, take a picture, and post it here, and when the competition ends on the 2nd of January at midday, I will choose the winner!

There is no prize I'm afraid, but surely getting to show off a nicely polished vintage cleaner and see it win is prize enough!?

So, snap away! :)

This Eureka..

Is all original including attachments, manuals, and even the disposable bags!
All I needed to do was replace the bag and belt then clean it up.
PS: This is an old pic so dont critisize the machines you see in the backround as they are either in better condition by now or gone LOL

After a lot of thought - I've decided to give the award of "Vintage Vacuum Cleaner Winner - January 2012" to... "eurekastar", and his Kirby!

Congratulations Bill - She's stunning! :)
