Mine was a 30+ yr old White Westinghouse laundry center. Just upgraded to the new Frigidaire set. Gave my old set to my brother-in-law. He still uses it.
Inside every old man is a kid wondering what the heck happened!

Would love to see some photos of that 30+ year old Westinghouse. Can't say I have ever seen one that old.

How's that new Frigidaire set working out for you?

Right after Katrina hit I lost my GE upright freezer. I originally paid nothing for. In 1989 I was sent by my boss to his mothers home. I was instructed to go by the wholesalers warehouse and pick her up a brand new upright freezer. She lived in a swanky house in springhill. I carefully
set up her new freezer and loaded the old one on the truck. I checked in with the boss. Mission accomplished what do you want done with the old freezer? He said chunk it! I took it to my house and on my next day off I checked it out. The timer was stuck in defrost. It was a very nice frostfree upright and her maid had throughly cleaned it out also. It was imaculate. It lasted till Hurricane Katrina hit and the compressor died. I finally cchunked it to the curb. I went down to the river and their was an upright freezer also tossed on the trash it was in the flood from the hurricane. not a frost free model just a plain upright model with no fans nothing. I was liking what I was looking at so i took it home and hosed it down. I let it sit a day or two in the sun to let it dryout.sure enough it did not stink. so I put a new hard start on it and gave it a try. It works beautiful. 2nd freezer in a row I ain't paid anything for. and this one I really like it because even though it ain't a defrost model,you can never hear it running.It is awesome.
May the hinges of our friendship
        never grow rusty.

@ RegUS_PatOff,
Wow, how cool is that. Thanks for the link.
I often thought about saving some of the old ones, but my wife would kill me if I started a "Collection" of appliances. :)


@ JWWebster,
I like free stuff. There are so many things that get junked out and no one takes the time to check them out.
Seems like everyone wants the latest and greatest new appliances now day's.
I hope all you lost in Katrina was your freezer...
