Despite the fact that it is in rough shape and is missing the ribbon cover, this Torpedo is still amazingly fast. Typing on it is, as best I can describe, electrifying. I'll have an eye out for a nicer one now...

Nicknamed "Turbo". Turbo the Torpedo... nice...

The cursive was completely a surprise. It seems like something an eBay seller should check before listing their typewriter. This is my THIRD surprise cursive machine, my typewriter karma may be used up!
