a couple weeks ago I bought a vintage 1949 Vendo 39 Coca Cola Machine for just $500. everything on it looks to be original and all the parts are here. the machine just needs some lubrication and a new cord, other than that it's in really good shape. when I do get it repaired, I will use it to store not only my vintage soda pop bottle collection that I'm storing in it now, but other sodas and maybe even water bottles. anyway, I'm just so excited because this is my first vintage vending machine. hope everyone enjoyed reading this.
