I finally got the man cave to the point where I can start bringing in the 10 pumps or so, hanging the signs and putting all the other things I collect up.
I thought I would share the progress from the beginning as I move more of the goodies into it over the next year.

Rick, That's my 1955 elevator I put in. - It's the upstairs in my new garage.

The reason the place doesn't look familiar is this is where we are going to retire

That's it! Well maybe not that exact one...

That's the Coca Cola cooler I bought soda from when I was a real little kid. I'm guessing the bottles hung in a line kinda like the lines at local amusement parks, tho suspended in icey cold water.

Nice large space! I bet though when you fill it you will wish it was larger... smile

Your Coke machine is what is called a slider, it was probably made by Ideal. Mine is a Ideal 55. It is called a slider because you put the money in then slid the bottles over to the left and pulled them out of the machine. These machines were used all over the place, many out front of service stations. They had a compressor in the bottom that ran a refrigiration unit that kept the bottles cold, no cold water.
Almost every guy who grew up during the time of their use will tell you the story of how they pried the cap off a bottle while it was still in the box, then sucked the soda out through a straw.

Close on the ID of the Coke machine - it is a Glasco 50 and very similar to the Ideal.

I also want to thank all of you for all the positive comments on my Project -

Very nice! I like the elevator. Something to be said for building retirement coupe on one level, but you got it covered. You know we don't want to think about getting old and stairs being a promblem,but I see lots of folks who reside in only half their homes due to stairs.

I have been asked by a few of you about the elevator. I was one of those Craig list finds - an elevator for $125, something I didn't know I needed till I saw the ad. It was still in operation in a house and they wanted it gone. With a friends help and about 4 hours of time we had it disassembled and in my truck. Then the task was where to figure out where to install it and will it work after I do install it. After much figuring - I decided to remove the stairs in the garage and put it in place of them as I finished the space. It was a fun project and the first ride was great -

And I also think Tim's idea of a garage tour in the future is a great idea.

Here's a couple of more pictures of the elevator

Wow, I didn't realize it was operational without seeing cables hanging from the top in your orginal picture. When the elevator is down, does the roof of it sort of cover the hole on the second floor?

There are a few things that are not yet done in the room - like the railing around the elevator - it will have a gate and railing one of these days so nobody falls in the hole - it all about priorities

Alex - make sure you walk down and visit

Will do....

For the rest of the oldgassers...it is truly a small world. I was out in Seattle a couple of years back visiting my brother when he told me of a Texaco sign down the street and we should walk down there. Turns out it was 42 Packard.

That would be a great place to hang out, but you know what it really needs? A 1959 Cadillac couch custom built, painted, and upholstered by my class and I. We have one available if you are interested!

A man cave with an elevator - unreal. When I do mine, I plan on having a urinal on the wall... right out in the open. It'lll just be guys for the most part and I've peed in front of most of my buddies on trees/wheels/inside truck doors/etc, so I figure it'd be no biggie. Love the elevator though.
