    Wow! Too much even for me, and I love orange. But any FW has its charm.

    I'm of two minds about repainting a classic. Maybe it was so hopelessly damaged that it's classic-ness was completely compromised. Even so, I'd never pay $700 for it.

    I'm sure the machine wasn't "ruined". People who refurbish these don't tend to paint over them unless the original paint job is in terrible condition or unless they're rusted. I've seen plenty of them for sale at quilt shows with new paint jobs in this price range. I have no idea why someone would pay that kind of money for a re-paint when you can buy the original for at least half the price.
