Streamlines Deluxe

Another post stealing the name of a fellow blog.

I finished up on the 1942 Corona Silent which still fits the post but is of a lighter color.


  1. Nice comparison. I was just thinking of such a comparison the other day, because Robert featured the "Speedline" Corona design and I found a streamlined Remington 5.

    Of course, I think you really bring the sexy only with the glossy-paint versions of these machines.

    To my eye, the Remington is a little bolder and more fun in its shapes; the Corona is more sophisticated-looking -- and far more sophisticated-typing.

    1. The glossy versions are amazing. But I think the crinkle and line ones are more suave than sexy. They feel more... sophisticated. Kinda the difference between Marlyn Monroe, and Audrey Hepburn.

  2. It really struck me how similar in size and styling they were. I suppose I could try buffing them shiny but somehow I don't think it would work.

  3. They are similiar, indeed. I like how you see the typebasket on the Remie, and I love the glossy racing stripes. I'd take any of the two.

  4. never thought to compare these two but the similarities are striking

    i have the speedline and the remington 5, both glossy and i think i might take a look at both side by side soon


Let me know if capcha comes back. Thanks for commenting.
