To buy or not to buy - the sewing machine

I need to vent about what's driving me crazy right now. On Saturday, I went to see a man about a sewing machine. The exact same model I grew up learning to sew on - a 1960's Singer. The shop owner said he had two and that he was going to get them ready and call me. Has he called? Nooooooo! You would think that in such bad economic times, shops would follow up with their customers. Now, I'm probably going to have to trek back there on Saturday and see if he will oblige me by showing me a machine. Or what the heck, maybe I'll just go buy new. I'm fighting against that because it's not linked to the happy days of sewing with my mother in the basement which we turned (the entire thing) into a sewing room. I wonder - is a new sewing machine better than a reliable old one?
