I always wonder about that. More often than not, that slide plate is missing.

That's funny. I completely missed the missing slide plate. I must have been too busy admiring the decals.

ptquilts - yes! It's a lot easier to collect them than rid yourself of them. I have several machines I've been sitting on a while as well.

That's why I've only toyed with the idea of fixing and selling them. I see a lot of machines sit for weeks on Craig's List and not just the over-priced ones either.

It is very tough to get rid of machines.

"The only negative on the truck is that it had belonged to trucheck prior to purchasing it. During this time trucheck repainted the front half of the vehicle due to paint fade. You can see the difference, but it's not they noticeable."
