Skyler and I drove down to Tulsa last night and returned today with a whole van-load of treasures. Here's the list2 - 1968 RapidDry washer
1967 "L" dryer (will be combined with the turq. panel machine brought home in July
59-60 Westinghouse Roll-About top-loading dishwashe
oodles of parts for "L" dryers and rollermatic washerWe had a fun (although short) trip and took other pictures of Bruce's jukebox collection which were really stunning, I'll post more of those later... The weekend isn't over though and we have another short trip planned so stay tuned for more appliance excitement!

That Beast of a Westinghouse Dishwasher

OOOh I'm glad you decided to take home the Westy dishwasher, if nothing more than to just play with it. Bruce is "cleaned out" for sure now.

No, I won't keep all of the machines, I don't want that many rollermatics. The main reason I went back was to get machines to use as parts/cabinet/trim donors for the 1967 "L" set so they can be as perfect as possible and then I'll fix up what I can for good machines and sell them to eager washerphilesThe Westy dishwasher is nearly perfect inside, but the outside will need paint. The outside/top of the lid is made of Fiberglas! I have the owner's manual for it as well so I couldn't leave it behind!

Yes; I noticed the Westy dishwasher has caught a bit of the "old-refrigerator" look (just my term for a weathered cabinet; I mainly see it on 1940's--50's refrigerators which is how I coined the name)I was just wondering if you were going to sell any Rollermatics once your work is complete; count me in as an eager "washerphile" wanting one! ;---Austin

Glad you are home safe too. You and that blue van of yours, it just hauls bunns (appliances LOL). Can't wait to see more pix of the dishwasher. And more Frigidaires. And Anthony, OK IS OK. I chat with some very nice guys from there.

Has anyone seen the sixties version of this movie? I love this movie; they have a beautiful I think Rapidry set (Frigidaire for sure) in avacado! The machine "Goes bananas." And it is so funny. But anyway it looks a lot like the windows-less frigi washer in the picture.
