    I went into our GW store yesterday just to look. I always go to the household section first. There was a Kenmore in a cabinet and I passed that and then looked a little further. I couldn't believe it. There was a pink Atlas machine like my mom's old one that's in my basement and it was in this beautiful cabinet!. I looked for a price-$9.99! so I hunted up an emplyee and asked her if that really was the price-Yup! Si I bought it. have no idea where I'm putting it. These are the pix-I haven't done anything to it except nearly kill myself to get it out of my car and into the house. It is identical to my mom's. I haven't even checked to see if it runs or not.

    I'm assuming so as the knee peddle is attatched to the inside on the right. you can kinda see it in the third picture.

    i thought that too. It's solid wood and hardly any wear on it.
