1976 Smith Corona Super G Serial # 7YP 54411 1976 Smith Corona Super G typewriter, Serial # 7YP 54411 Robert Clendaniel's 1976 Smith Corona Super G typewriter. 2019-03-31 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Robert Clendaniel: 1976 Smith Corona Super G Serial # 7YP 54411 Found this sportster at a local consignment auction. This little GHIA cleaned up nicely - a real barn find. The paper feed rollers were a little sticky and gunky, but I cleaned them up, put in a new ribbon, and she runs like a top. Good paint, good tread, low mileage.

Always wanted a Karmann Ghia convertible - this is probably as close as I'll get...

I'm an architect by day and an incorrigible tinkerer by night. I prowl thrift stores, auctions, and antique shops looking for old mechanical things to fix up. My entry drugs were fountain pens and wind-up tin toys, but before long I had gone to the harder stuff - watches and clocks. Finally, I broke down and decided to try "just one" typewriter - a 1948 Royal KMM. I told myself I wouldn't do any more until I got rid of it, but didn't know you could get hooked so easily. Fourteen typewriters later, I still have the KMM, and am still looking for that next fix. I'm expecting an intervention from the family soon.
