I'm trying to figure out what type of machine it is.

    The decals say Singer, and it has a good size throat area, just a shade smaller than my 66. But it has some reddish tint to the decals. I KNOW it is not a redeye, but the decals are real similar. It has a drop in area for one of those long bobbins (shuttle right?) no shuttle bobbin casing though. It seems like a lot of money for a machine that can't possibly work with no shuttle. I just wish I could figure out what it is.
    Sounds like a 128 with La Vincedora decal.

    Billy posted a pic of one on page 29. Its' what he used in his tutorials.

    Sweet looking machine and nice cabinet. That machine might be the one that would break my dependence on e-machines. Thanks for showing us. ~ Chris
    I learned to sew on a Necchi Supernova that looked just like this. It was a very nice machine! Someone, anyone in the Baltimore area should go after this machine....

    I think Billy got a 31 for doing FM work. The 31's are industrial machines, larger than a domestic model. Can you post a picture for us to see? I'd love to see the machine.

    What year T-Bird did you see? We have a '62, light blue with marine blue interior...all original...never been painted or reupholstered. We are keeping it that way as long as possible, but will have to re-do the upholstery some time in the not too distant future...it's pretty brittle and it's starting to split.

    Hope you had a great time!!

    Wonder how long it will take me to catch up?

    I am trying to stay away from new machines, but did get a couple of "little" ones--a Kruse and Murphy HC and an extra K & M head--just in case. <GR>

    More later--I'm off to pick up a lavender Necchi for someone else!!
    Wow Miz Johnny, it is so nice to see you back!
