    I like all McCulloch saws (except for the Husqvarna owned rebranded type) but for some reason I have a big soft spot for late 60's to late 70's McCulloch saws. Any of the 10 Series saws grab my attention like no other.

    I like the 50cc saws a lot, that and the 70's.
    Most of my time running them is spent on the 35-50cc saws.

    Really looking to get a 7-10A in my collection. Any SP81s are a plus. Probably some of favorites out of the McCulloch line up. Apparently I'm getting a decent refurbished SP125.. (hopefully I'm not getting scammed lol). We'll see..

    Nice! Still waiting to get my hands on a Pro Mac 10-10. Only have the Pro 10-10 as of now and that thing is very impressive!

    Cool.
    I'm more into the 3 series huskys myself for play saws, and the 5 series and mtronic saws for work saws.
    Once I get a shop I may mess with some of the older saws, but for now I primarily buy saws that are ready to go or those needing work to resell.

    Understandable..
    This for me is more or less a hobby as my main job is Law Enforcement. I just like to take old Mac's that are considered "For Parts Only" and make them run :D ..and collect some nice looking/lightly used ones along the way. These saws (at least to me) are works of art. I could look at em' all damn day. On top of that, the vast majority of them are built to last and are strong runners, even if they just need a carb kit.
