Smith Corona Corsair Deluxe. Named her "Althea" I know it's not the greatest but I'm loyal to her, as she was the only machine who's been with me during my toughest times.
Found this lovely Princess 300 while in Frankfurt on business — one owner, and very well taken care of, it types like a dream (though as it's a QWERTZ layout, it requires a little more attention).
A rare Optima P1 in QWERTY — this is a lovely machine to type on, though on the heavy/large side for a portable.

If this doesn’t make you feel like you’re in the Secret Service, nothing will! Although I admit I prefer my cocktail stirred, not shaken....
