This is the continuation of the post entitled "Calling on Minolta Historians." The weekend before I bought this outfit, I told my father about it. I was a bit short of cash and he told me that if it was a good deal, he'd front me the money. The whole kit came to me for $250.00 and it was worth every penny. What also helped was that on the following Monday, I picked up a lawn mower that somebody else put out with the trash. I quickly asked the owner what happened and he said that his son hit a rock and broke the motor. After he went back inside, I checked under the deck and I saw the blade was bent awfully. I tilted it up and pulled the cord and it felt fine. Before I tossed it into my pickup, I primed the carb, tilted the deck back again and pulled the cord. It started first pull but it had a wobble. I threw it into my truck and drove it home. There I pulled the blade and mandrel off and checked it out. Without the blade on it ran like a sewing machine. I spent $18.00 on a new blade, put it on, mowed my back yard with it and sold it for a hundred and twenty the same week. Pop already got half of his money back. As for the camera, I ran the first film through it. It was my last roll of Kodak Gold 100. The shutter speeds are good. The meter is accurate. I was pleased overall with the results. First, the prerequisite camera porn.
