Not sure about the FRC445GM but the FRC445GB has been successfully converted with a tower on top. I've heard new ones are about $179.

I picked up a Danby DAR440BL this weekend for $99 bucks. It was an ebay item but luckily the guy was located in my town, so no shipping charge.. Look around for that model as well, as its a pretty sharp looking fridge..

There was a version of the Sanyo 4912 available out here in California at Fry's Electronics a few months back. So, they are still around.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)
