Hey All! I'm not sure if this should be in this thread or not, but here goes. I'm putting up for sale an Electrolux Olympia One and a maroon Tri-Star. The Lux has the matching power nozzle, flip floor/ rug tool, extra wands, a gray electric hose, and extra bags. The Tri-Star has the original hose, power nozzle, and all attachments except the dusting brush. This model also has the two-speed motor. I'd like $30.00 plus shipping for each. If anyone's interested, let me know, and I'll post pics tommorrow. Later, Trg

Well, here's the pics I promised. First up, the Lux Olympia One.

One more. You can see that though the Tri-Star emblem is completely intact, it does have some nicks and chips in the paint. I also have the matching hose for the Lux that I'll include if wanted, but it does leak. Keep me informed guys, Trg

I will testify to the fact that that Olympia One is in excellent condition. Purrs like a kitten and will suck the chrome off a trailer hitch.

(if that's your idea of a good time)......

I am irrepressibly patriotic and cannot stop myself in the face of such blatant outrageousl tall southern gentleman's claims.

A Canadian Electrolux AP280 of similar vintage will not only strip the plating off a trailer hitch and polish out the rust, it will swallow it whole and spit it out re-plated in nickle.

Pardon my levity, Toby, and I do agree with Rick that that one is in superb condition. :-()
