Beautiful Typer! Looking forward to more typewriter articles.
I'm less green with envy, since I have a green one myself. But not as pristine as yours (as usual). ;)
I was worrying this might turn some folks green with envy. :P Good to hear you're exempt.
Very beautiful typewriter! Great choice on the green ribbon too!
Breathtaking machine :) I cannot wait to see what you have coming up next! Kind regards,
Talk about minty!
...I sometimes just want to lick it.
Coincidentally, a collector in France was in touch with me with news of a Blue Bird (Torpedo 15a) he'd just got. You'd wince at the awful paint job but it looks like these machines really get under people's skin. Heck, I still fetishise the Good Companion 5. Someone, somewhere, did something right on the drawing board. Adieu.
At the drawing board, and in the factory!
I remember those days well. It's a shame that Yahoo took the chat feature off, but I think we've all found other ways to communicate.
This is indeed a very beautiful machine.
Ohhhh that's a damn sexy example of a Torpedo. Not quite as nice as your white one though.
And I do also miss Yahoo's chat function. Collectors are a funny bunch. I've seen a few that get foul and angry and can get just right nasty to other collectors. And some of them are just that kind of person.
