That's nuttin' I have around 100 right now - many in storage. Just finished moving to a new house and am busy setting up a workshop. I'll be selling them as I restore them. I expect it will take many years to do them all.

Do you happen to have a blonde stereo tandem? I am still missing that model from my collection.

After the Continental I think The Pedestal model (nicknamed the barber pole) is the most desirable of the 21" sets.

I picked this one up on eBay from a local, got it and a Holiday for $300.
It was in rough shape, CRT was bad, missing some knobs, the finish was shot and the screen cover was cracked but the cabinet itself was in great shape, I knew I'd never have a better shot at one local to me so I went for it.

I found a CRT on eBay, took the screen cover and knobs from a Holiday I already had, refinished the cabinet and restored the chassis, the total investment is still less than I could buy most unrestored examples for, and I have a Holiday left over. 8)


Your pedestal predicta came out nice. I couldn't help noticing the vintage compact and magic disc in the background. Does your model have the rca-whirlpool powerhead too?

That Vacuum was missing the attachments and I wound up returning it to the Thrift store from where it came.

No, I've only seen one ever and he wanted something like 2 grand for it so I had to pass.

Yeah,people tend to ask crazy money on a lot of things. There's one missing the legs and they guy wants $1,200 for it. The monitor looks like it came from another set too because the base is walnut and the cabinet is blonde

Those are pretty common,so you likely could have found attachments eventually. I've never heard of a thrift store that accepted returns. That's amazing. I could imagine that would wind up being a nightmare since everything is used.

I returned it by donating it back, I didn't give much for it and they don't do refunds.
