Does anyone collect Montgomery Ward vacuums that were made by Hoover?

I do!

I love the MW labeled Hoovers! Also a big fan of the JCP machines as well. I have a couple of the Montgomery Ward labeled ranger hood Convertibles.

Hoover upright bought around '74, pink, no light and snaps instead of a zipper is a "Special"?

I'll have to get some photos.

gottahaveahoove's profile picture
And list the model number. It has a flat handle, and a white hood with headlight, same style hood as a Hoover 1070, 1076, etc.
I really don't need it as a part of my collection.

We'll talk. Not sure what the shipping will be from PA 18640.
I'm really not interested in it anymore.
But, for your collection.. great!

Hi John,
I hadnít heard anything from you through email. Are you getting my messages? If not do you have a different email that I should send messages to? Iím still very interested in purchasing that MW Convertible from you.

I'm not sure I do.

gottahaveahoove's profile picture
A local collector had asked about it a while back. No shipping. I'll see if he STILL was interested in it.
I hope one of you gets to enjoy it.
I don't want or need it.

Well, looks like it might be yours!

gottahaveahoove's profile picture
We'll have to see about postage plus the price.
Then, after I receive a cashier's check, it will be mailed to you. I hope that's ok. It's the only way I'll sell anything on here, especially to someone I've never met. I trust you appreciate that.

I haven't heard from you since your last message here. Were you able to get a shipping quote for this Convertible?

Well, Karl,

gottahaveahoove's profile picture
Feel free to contact me privately. However, due to that snarky comment for "Reggie", that vacuum, model UHO-82-842 will no longer be for sale, at least not for now.

So, you may thank ULTRALUX for this! ! ! !

commenting on a post (that has nothing to do with him) is BULLYING.
To quote George Bush (Baby Bush), "Not gonna do it". So, Karl, take it up with him. Sorry.

Thatís right ďJohnĒ I actually know the reason youíre ignoring his emails and not selling him the vacuum. And if Karl does email me, I WILL be telling him. You wanna come on here and make it out like itís all my fault, well, donít expect it to go how you want.

I am not entertaining any more of this.

Reginald now claims he "knows everything". Well, that's great.
This is not the place for any of this. We were discussing a MW vacuum.

It amazes me how/where you've gotten the answer.

Again, Karl, sorry.

Remember, this was between you and me. No other 3rd party had any need to get involved.
This machine is mine, to do with what I choose. Although I have no need for it, I'll keep it, for now.
I fail to see why/how a 3rd party needs to involve himself in a lot of my affairs.It seems odd, obsessive.

Find something else to do.
Your altered photos of me, religious groups, etc (I'm not going there in here), etc would not please your mother, to whom you're very close, we've heard.

You should stay out of all of these things . You're getting very close to police/legal activity.
I think your obsession is very unhealthy.
But, maybe it's your thing. You need to focus on other things.

Back to vacuum cleaners, everyone?

I donít know what all youíre talking about. I donít recall posting anything about religious groups or altered photos here. If all this is happening to you, I donít know what to say. But I do know that youíve stirred more than your fair share of the pot, and made many, many unwanted and barely on topic posts over the years that were filled with snarky digs. You really donít like it when it happens to you, but it sure hasnít stopped you from doing it.

You really are amazing in this delusion.
But, I'm focusing on vacuum cleaners, etc.
I'll post things in a friendly manner. I'll engage in conversations about vacuum cleaners, etc.
Best of luck to you, Reginald.
You might be hearing from an attorney and the police. It could happen.]
Just saying.
Your obsession with me is most unusual, and unwarranted, unsolicited, etc, etc.
So, vacuums???

Iím damn near certain the police and attorneys donít care about these forum posts.

And assume any of the rest of this is even happening to you, itís coming from somewhere other than me. I may be one of only a couple who have the gall to confront you publicly on here, but Iím by no means the only person who feels you are a toxic presence.

That hurts me,

gottahaveahoove's profile picture
so much. :(
But, I'll get over it.
A simple question or two: IF you hate me THIS much, why don't you just ignore me? Or, as Robert suggested, "block this user", and I'll disappear.I think we might have an obsession raging here.
Reggie, fill your day with good things.
The only reason I'm not, is to gather what I need for the police who "will" care

So, bagged? bagless? bag and dirt cup combo?

or, another option.....

gottahaveahoove's profile picture
pick up the phone and call me, and speak to me, with me.

Why have you never done that?

Post# 436351 , Reply# 33   12/16/2020 at 11:40 by Ultralux88 (Denver, Colorado)        
John, you know what hurts me so much

ultralux88's profile picture
And I have it on good authority (basically everyone who Iíve talked to thatís had much to do with you says you said this to them) when you tell people that Tom killed Austin. When we all know it was a suicide. Old tragedy, yes, but you still repeat this filthy rumor. Why does this hurt me so deeply? Because, the last time I talked to Austin was my failed attempt and talking him out of doing it. For literally an entire year I blamed myself for it. Iím past that, but the way you mock and deride it... Then how you gleefully accuse Tom, who actually was the one who has to bear the memory of finding our friend deceased, of killing him. The way you mock and deride such a painful event, and use it as some kind of cautionary tale as to why to stay away from us. Itís truly vile and disgusting, and the only thing more vile and disgusting than this filthy rumor are those who knowingly repeat it. Secondly you mocked and derided our pain again when we all were mourning the loss of Clay Floyd. Never mind your constant snarky digs that EVERYONE knows you constantly post. The final straw for me was you being a completely rude and nasty person to Sam. The two prior incidents had me waiting, just waiting to have a good excuse to follow you around this forum and treat you exactly like you treat others.

Youíre a bully who plays the victim ďJohnĒ, and thatís why I hate you so much.

Wow! My final word on this.

gottahaveahoove's profile picture
I never met Austin. I never met any of you. I knew nothing about Austin. And, "I" tell everyone he took his life? I know and knew nothing about him, OR Clay . All I ever did hear about him, was strange things at Home Depot, and him ripping a lot of collectors to shreds. But, I never met him. Perhaps you need new friends. The ones you 'speak to' about me. well, how many of them actually know me?
As far as 'following me around' waiting, sounds threatening.
Hate is a terrible thing.
I wish you the best, and that some of this mean behavior can leave you.
But, you MUST leave me alone, as, you're not all "white gloves", Reginald.
We cannot be responsible for other people's actions or words. You were offered a chance to speak to me. You passed on that. I'm sorry about the loss of your friend. But keep me out of it. I would ask who these people are whom you've spoken to about me. But, I may know already.. or might not need to know.
By, Reginald, and I hope you can eventually stop battering oters.

Once again my email in box is full of marked as offensive warning emails.

So now hear this...

When it comes to the public forums from here on out I do not want you John (gottahaveahoove) to respond to anything that Reggie says (ultralux88) and Reggie the same goes for you, I do not want you responding to anything that John says. If you guys want to have it out by all means you're both more than welcome to do it in the Miscellanea Forum which is out of public view. I will look the other way in the private forum.

If either one of you cannot abide by my request I will have to ask you to leave the forum.

From now on I will refrain from interacting with John in any way on the public forums.

this was a nasty bit of ugliness. Hope it doesn't detract from Monkey Wards vacs made by Hoover, which I find interesting.

A lot written about Kenmore's, but not so much about MW.
