So is this the pump? I didn't see the episode.

Another link.

If it is I found this link on a board on the History Channels web site. Someone in the "Coke Machine" thread mentioned it and said this is the pump and it's still listed for sale as an unrestored pump. If this is the pump one thing interesting I think I noticed is if you go to the "Events" page of Ricks site and click on "tv" where they talk about the pawn show it looks like this pump was added to their site the same day the episode was to air. Maybe there's another reason that someone who knows websites can explain but to me it looks like...Hmmmmm?
The tv link. Look at the dates.

If all of this stuff is faked...how can you trust the History Channel?

...no reply from Rick - big surprise, huh?...what a coward, won't even defend himself...the people responsible for this show are liars, plain and simple...the facts speak for themselves...

...Paul, I'm damn near flabbergated by your post - I would think you of all people would have no patience for this fraud passed off as fact...

...if you read the Pawn Stars discussion boards (which apparently have been censored to a great extent by the History Channel) there are quite a few people who's intelligence has been insulted by this network of late...and that's a shame, because at one time you could learn quite a bit about actual history watching this network...not a bad thing in this day and age of limited attention spans and portable video games...we're 'entertained' too often and 'educated' too infrequently...

...I wrote the History Channel the following - maybe they'll respond:

Hi - On your show 'Pawn Stars', the Pawn guys dropped off a junk Vendo 39 model Coke machine at Rick's Restorations to be restored. When they returned to pick up the restored item, Rick presented them with a Cavalier 72 machine as if he had 'restored' the old one. There is quite a bit of discussion about this on the Pawn Stars board. I had contacted 'Rick' and after he confirmed he was the Rick on the show, he failed to answer my questions regarding the obvious fraud perpetrated on Pawn Stars. I truly expected nothing less (or more) from him. What I want to know is what the History Channel is going to do about it? If obvious fraud is being passed off as fact, what does that do to the credibility of the network? Seriously, I would appreciate a REAL response that's not corporate, patronizing BS boilerplate, and actually addresses my concerns. Otherwise, maybe a name change is in order - 'The Made-Up History Channel'.

All these channels are running out of ideas. Even the DIY channel has restored to destroying houses rather than teaching you how to fix them.

Where are reruns of the Mickey Mouse Club shows?

Mark, Apparently you missed my point. It's not that I accept this type of thing, it's simply that I do not have the time or energy to champion a cause like this. I am passionate about life, family and friends. My restorations are real, as you of all people know. All this stuff is just smoke and mirrors out of Hollywood. NOT REAL.....I enjoy our hobby and especially like educating newbies about the things I understand to be real. Your Friend, Paul.....Oh...a big "Hi" to Mike....you know who you are!

Did you notice at the end when they went to test the bullwhip....
They used a different whip.

Just another example how mainsteam America will eat up this BS, while they allow tons of smoke being blown up their a$$e$.
I want to know when do we get to see an appearance from
"MISS DIRECTION"...or "MISS INFORMATION" on the show.

The bad thing is the damage it does when you go to buy this junk.

I tell you one thing ....Their brother in laws and relatives and the crackhead on the corner they use as actors, can't act their way out of a wet paper bag!!!!!

That show is about as beleivable as this before and after pic.

One more lie......if the guy is in the resto biz....why would he have said
that finding the parts for that pump was going to be tough? THAT was a flat out, bald faced, LIE.

He didn't even FIND all the parts for that pump...the nozzle receiver was off a G&B 96, the hose cover was off a Tok. 39, and he didn't even bother putting a vent cover on the side...he just put three bolts in the holes where the vent cover WOULD have gone and polished the heads. What a joke. Not to mention the color scheme was wrong, the ad glasses were wrong....I could go on. I would die if my name was put on that gosh-awful "restoration".

I saw the show also and was laughing at how Rick was going on about how bad the pump was and "it's a real pile" Nothing was hard to find on that pump and the thing was in nice shape.We all have restored ***** way worse than that.What a joke!!!
