They Used To Last 50 Years

My washer & dryer are from 1981 and 1972 respectively.  Maytag & Sears Kenmore.  Still work just fine, and even the owner of a local appliance store says to hang on to them until the very last because the new ones suck so bad.

We found an old Kelvinator refrig in a house we were rehabbing. Built of steel, fiber glass insulation and lead plated inside.  Built like a tank. We cleaned that bitch up and put it in the garage where it kept our beer and live bait or whatever cold for years and years. Indiana Jones hid in one like it to avoid a nuke blast in the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull movie. American companies used to build the shit back in the day.
