Welcome aboard. Nice collection of vacuums you have, some canisters, some uprights. Definitely a Fantom fan, do you like Dyson's too? I see you have the DC07, which one of my clients has struggled with but I know Dyson has made improvements from that model which I haven't explored yet and would be curios to. Your thoughts would be interested in you're highly into bagless machines.

I see you have a Hoover Windtunnel Bagless on your Wishlist, I have an upright, non self Propelled, in the refurbishing process as we speak, it will be for sale when completed though.

Welcome aboard, I advise reading the rules so as not to make some of the BooBoos that I encountered when first starting, and I'm a very new member as well.

Welcome to the insanely wonderful world of Vacuum Land!

I see you have a Model 63 and Convertible of "the good brand", care to post a couple of pictures ? I do like the American vintage Hoovers!

You have a good collection FantomFan. What color is your swivel glide MVP? I have a red one. It's one of my favorite vacuums.

Mine is the exact same as yours. I got it when I was looking at a Hoover. They said"well we also have a dirt devil you can have it for free". It works well but I had to put tape on the front cover because the plastic wont stay screwed in anymore. Its missing everything except the hose/wand.

Thanks!! My first experience with vacuums was with my toy dirt devil. My aunt was told about this and she decided to get something. Online for me as a joke. It was all four original FantoM infomercials. I still have them except for them lightning one. Because of that you can see now why FANTOMs are special to me. Not only that but we had the kenmore destiny plus(thunder lookalike) my aunt had a fury my other aunt had a lightning my cub scout leader had a cycloneXt and my moms boss had an original thunder. Some other things: I also have a small collection of coins I play the piano I love old music and records I love alf and the x files I like to swim and ride my bike and I like fuzzy animals. Im a little compulsive when it comes to cleaning my room!!

Thank you!! I guess the dc07 is ok but its very messy to empty the clutch sticks and hair gets wrapped around the brushroll all the time. If you ask me the dc27/dc28 seem like they're better designed. If you want to sell the windtunnel I'm interested. You'll have to ship it but of course ill pay for that. Parcel post is the cheapest. My email is I'm in to mainly FANToms and good us made vacs. Ill post pictures soon- jimmurray01 they are the great ones!!!

Thanks!! Too bad you cant get a wildcat. Have you ever gotten any FANTOMs? I know James Dyson hates them.
