Since we have a few neat off topic threads going I decided to add one more...............and you folks may commit me to the ward for this one.
Some of you may know I've been into model trains since I was little and currently have a large "L" shaped 9' x 13' HO layout in the basement plus have alot of O, N and a few pieces of G scale. Well I have another 'hobby' too that I really don't mention. I collect and restore vintage Electrolux vacuum cleaners, plus collect the attachments and sales brochures associated with them. I even have a few mini ones that are piggy banks!
I have 2 of them "in service" that I use but the others even though they have been restored to fully functional status are "display only". Here's some pics,
Model S from 1956, in service.
Model 1205 Deluxe from 1972, in service
Some of the hoses and attachments I have. I'm not quite sure where everything is as I have it squirreled away wherever I found space!
Hoses (the 2 blue hoses are what you would call "NOS" in the Mustang world. Aren't easy to find in that condition. The 2 vacs that I have in service are running replacement hoses. The brown hose in the pic is cloth and for the Model XXX from 1939 in the first and second pics. It's the vac that has skiis/rails instead of wheels.
Some attachments. Again, the blue vintage ones aren't easy to find in new condition. I just collect them, they aren't in use.
Yes, I may be "wierd".........but look on the bright side, I'll get 3 meals a day and a nice place to sleep on the mental ward!
The project vehicles:
'68 Mustang coupe, Acapulco Blue, 289, C-4, power steering
'87 Caprice Classic wagon, gold/blonde, 307, power everything (retired everyday driver)
Hopefully a '69 convert or Sportsroof (non Mach or Boss) for next Mustang project.
Trying to find my father's 1973 Mustang Grande he bought brand new. 3F04F126773 last known registration and title was in New Jersey, 1982.
