Those ones Macybaby posted earlier are pretty close. There was one (a Singer model 27 IIRC) offered down in Portland's Craigs List a while back that looked like it had been in a fire it was so bad. Price: $200.

All of them were bad enough the only way I would bother is if I made a bet with someone.
That might be fun. Maybe after Christmas when things settle down a bit......

I'm kind of thinking of a race sort of thing. Everyone take their worst machine and restore it back to decent cosmetic and running condition and document their progress on here as they go. I've got the perfect candidate in the White Rotary Cari gave me. I haven't messed with it yet but that one spent some quality time outside in the mud before she got it then lived under her carport for a while. It's far enough gone that it's a candidate for a repaint and has a bunch of rust on the underside.
It would have to wait until after Christmas. This is a busy time for a lot of people with the holidays.
I'll start a new thread for it then.
