Did a head count, some are in use by family members...

Domestic - 1 (serial # 10635, a really early one)
Kenmore Destiny (domestic equiv)-2
Destiny Plus - 2
Thunder - 6
Lightning - 4 (2 complete, 2 canister body only)
Fury - 2
Wildcat - 3
Cyclone XT - 3 (functonality of one unknown)
Crosswinds 200XL - 1

In the past couple months I passed on 3 Furys. Two were in pretty rough shape and the thrift wanted $20 a piece, one was $15 just in the past two weeks and had a service sticker which usually to me means its been through the ringer and someone had to take it in to have it fixed, all were run of the mill regular editons. I did pick up a Cyclone XT this week for $10, the first Fantom I've bought since June when I found the other Wildcat.

I always liked the Fantoms back to that original when we first got it. I suppose it was worth the $300, my parents didn't really want to shell out the cash for it, but it lasted 18 years and still works. I maybe had to throw out one over the course of the years, I sold 5 or 6 I pieced together from parts.

Anyone else notice the 11 amp version of the Thunder seperates dirt better than the 12 amp version?
