Therein lies the beauty in collecting old saws. It is an inexpensive hobby and gives us hours of pleasure tinkerin' and talkin'. ;D Some guys have ridiculous ideas of what their vintage cream puff is worth but with so many out there we can afford to be choosy. I like your Pioneers, particularly the 1074 (or is it a P-26).

What Poulan model  is that? Love a good sounding Poulan ripping wood.They have a distinct exhaust pulse like Mopars. ;D

Poulan 220, Craftsman 3.7/306A, and a 361.  Heavily outnumbered by the Pioneers. P-40, P-41, P-21, 1110 and 1200.

Skillsaw 1645/Power Machinery 340 is hard to see in the back.
Over 40 old magnesium runners.  Plei Trapp Valley Duck!!! Club.

The one place the new saws really shine is in AV reduction. My old 7-10 is a bear, so is my 250, 300 and 1-50, but man oh man! I don't think anything has that 7-10 beat as far as giving you "cutters curl"! I often wonder how much of my arthritis is connected to old saws. The weight I can take, the noise too, but the vibration is a killer.
