I like vertical cabinets, I just hate the frilly ornate cabinets that were the most common in the late 50s right through the 70's. I can't stand fake drawers!

Too bad you can't open the drawers to access the chassis, tubes and caps
There was Quasar, "works in a drawer". Did they make consoles with fake drawers?

Congratulations on your "new" television!
Welcome to AK!

I thought about bidding on that set, too. Atlanta's not a problem, my in-laws live there, but that set is too big to even fit in the trunk of my wife's Town Car. If it had been a table model...

Regarding roundies in central FL, it would be a major thrill to find any here. It seems much of the Orlando area was built up post-Disney, so
few of the houses are old enough to contain roundies or other tube-type electronics. The old folks left their old broken TVs in their basements up north when they moved to FL.
