    I posted this on another thread but I thought I would post this here too. I got her at a yard sale for $1.00. The woman just wanted to get rid of it.
    She is a 1959 185K. At first she made loud noises, I gave her a good cleaning and oiling and makes no more noises. I had fun playing with my new baby.

    Sounds like she's found the perfect new home. $1.00 is very reasonable adoption fee!
