Boy this must be an ultra conservative bunch that would rather have an 
old Omni C over an Omni 6.  I traded my Omni C on a Paragon back in 1992 
and would do it again in a heartbeat.  Since the Omni Six is a better rig 
than a Paragon I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't swap a C for a six!??
I wouldn't go back to using an Omni C with it's 17 Khz per dial 
revolution tuning, single VFO, lack of pass band tuning, band switch to 
get dirty and wear out - just to mention a few things.  The Omni C is a 
nice backup or second rig but it doesn't stack up in features or 
convenience to the current state of the art radios.  

A model T Ford was a great car in it's day, but I wouldn't want to drive 
very far on the interstate in one today!
