Singer's new Vintage...

In honor of the 160th anniversary of the Singer company, and in keeping with the disdain for their modern machines and love of their vintage machines that is commonplace these days...Singer is producing a new, limited edition machine, the 160...
Looks like a Curvy with a new paintjob to me....
It is sort of fitting, I guess. They haven't figured out that it's not the LOOKS of the machines that makes the older models so popular, it's the quality. 
'We'll paint a plastic machine to look lke one of our old cast metal machines and no one will know the difference!'
Ummmm, it's plastic.
It's probably computer controlled.

The thing is, for what they charge for a modern machine, you COULD make a high quality aluminum bodied machine with a mechanical gearing system that would be capable of producing all those stitches and more...
But then you'd have to label it 'Bernina' :)
