Today I drove to the middle of no where, really. I live in rural New York and today I drove even further into rural NY. There was a Necchi Super Nova Julia 534 advertised on Craigslist and I drove to the middle of a state forest to look at it. I knew that the wiring was bad and that the motor did not fire up. I still went. It took me about an hour and I did drive over some flood damaged roads and some dirt roads. The garmin wanted me to take a questionable route, so I followed the Gazeteer. Originally the land was a farm, now it is a forest. I love nature.
The machine turned freely. The wiring was a mess. The power cord looked unique with four pins. There was no way to salvage it since it is a molded piece. I knew that I did not want to bring home another project. Not for forty bucks. She would not budge on her price. eBay influence I am certain. So, if she does list it on eBay I will watch it. Would I take the 35 mile trek out there again to buy it? Sure for five bucks.
Now. I know nothing about Necchi.. Maybe forty bucks is a deal for a non working vintage Necchi Super Nova Julia 534. But it isn't to me. Steven is proud of me. "Way to show some self control, honey."
