 I have a BRAND NEW, never used "Silver" anniversary.  It looks good.  I think that the dark blue one might be one of the finest models. That white and green one is VERY aggressive.... perhaps too much so.  It was used here at a minimeet.  One of the guys said, "Wow... look at all that dirt"!  It wasn't dirt,  it was NAP!

This retired exec,  Mr. Dick Pike,  was VERY instrumental for Windtunnel.  It was his last project.

This one we do own currently. Hoover Windtunnel Plus S3639 bagged canister vacuum cleaner. Excellent machine. Wonderful suction, quiet power nozzle that's VERY powerful yet just purrs along. It's at my parents house.

Rob...

The blue bagless machine is the one I used to own when I was a little kid (my first bagless vacuum, and I was only 4 years old). Died in 2003 and got replaced with a Smart Vac. Went through Kenmores within 2007-2009 and got a Windtunnel and Powerforce Turbo in 2011.

I got that Blue Hoover Windtunnel Bagged upright from a yard sale. I was very excited when I got it and looking to keep it. I had used the burgundy Windtunnel Supreme uprights years ago at clients houses and liked them. So when I found this, my aunt and I were excited. It repaired and cleaned up beautifully. However I couldn't find any genuine Hoover brush rolls for it and the one in it was completely shot. It was so caked with hair when I got it that I couldn't see bristles and after removing some, I could see that the bristles were completely useless. I ended up putting a brand new CWP Windtunnel agitator in this vacuum.

OH MY GOLLIES!! What a TERRIBLE brush roll. I didn't like this vacuum at all with that horrid CWP. I debated keeping it, as my aunt and I were interested and I was going to give it her. I posted it on Craigslist and someone offered $75, so I let to go to them! I really was quite unimpressed and can't believe how much that CWP brushroll ruined the performance of these once great vacuums!!

Durango, I really like the canisters... a few things I wish they had included but that's just nit-picking! The T-Series is believe it or not, still a cleaning virgin, haven't used it yet, got it on sale at Home Depot and haven't tried it out yet.

Windtunnels

I have several windtunnels and I love all of them. My most recent Wintunnels are the 100th year Anniversary Bagged self propelled, and the Bagged non self propelled models. I just love that nice metallic blue color... I almost love them more then my good old convertibles but not quiet....

@gsheen

i had the uk version of the bluey grey windtunnel in your picture under the maytag label, it was one of the very best vacuums i have used in my house, it got really really noisey so as i had it on my warranty plan from domestic and genral it went off to be repaired,with the understanding that if they couldnt fix it was to be sent back to me. it went off to a company call Service 2000, a week after it was take away i got a call telling me it needed a new motor but they couldnt get the parts anymore, i asked them when they were sending it back to me, they told me it had gone in the rubbish the day before and the rubbish guys had been that morning and taken the crap including my windtunnel. i went totally apeshit at them but to no avail,domestic and general offered me a hoover hurricane in replacement i told them where they could stick that idea in the end they offered me the new tol hoover turbopower bagless begrudgingly i accepted i had the turbopower less than a week and gave it to a friend as it was crap.
im gutted i lost i my windtunnel i didnt even get a picture of it, ive been desperatly trying to hunt another on down for the last couple of years but no success, even tried to get onbe from the states but no one seems to be bothered to ship one they just go on about voltage, i have a transformer (robots in disguise )
so my message to all windtunnel owners im so envious look after your machines they will last for many years

My Hoover Windtunnel Plus S3639 canister above has turbine tool stored onboard along with the Hoover Windtunnel TurboPower 7500 S3649 canister and Hoover Windtunnel Preferrred S3641 that Lowe's carried. TurboPower 7500 is shown below.

As far as bagged uprights, I'd have to look into that, excellent question. I know bagless Wintunnels did. But the Windtunnel Supreme tool lid has stayed the same over the years only housing dusting brush, crevice tool and upholstery nozzle. Some display units in stores used to show turbo tool stored in one of the extension wands.

Hoover had a lot of decent looking machines. The original Windtunnel Canister S3630 was an awesome green. Below is the best image I could quickly google of it. It doesn't compare at all to seeing this first hand on a display shelf or in your home!!!
