I have an extensive collection of coke memorabilia. It includes a 1930's coke machine that holds 6 ounce bottles--and it works. On the outside, it announces the cost as 5 cents a bottle. To obtain one, you must twist a chrome handle on the top that exposes a small metal container that holds the cold bottle. I have the original metal "plates" that have pictures of young, nubile girls from the Roaring Twenties on them, in full color, wearing gashions of the period. I have a 36 inch tall thermometer shaped like a coke bottle with a thermometer that still works. I have all the cokes bottles produced since the 1980's that are made at Xmas and have pictures of Santa painted by famous artists on them. I have all coke bottles from famous football games like Nebraska v. Okklahoma, 1971, "The Game of the Century," SuperBowl bottles from 1970 thru the present; bottles from Olympics such as the 1996 Atlanta site; and 6 ounce bottles from 1920 thru the present. Many of these have where they were made, including Tulsa, OK; New Orleans, LA; Amarillo, TX; Tahita, French Polynesia; Tortola, The British Virgin Islands,; Kilkenny, Ireland; Sacremento, CA; and many others. Many of these bottles still have the coca-cola in them. I have a Depart. 56 Coca-Cola Bottling Plant as well as the Delivery Truck and figurines delivering the bottles. You nameit--I probably have it. Many are for sale. If interested, feel free to write me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will respond and include a picture if the item that interests you. I am also interested in collecting things I do not have, so feel free to contact me if you have something to sell. I drink about six bottles a day but still weigh only 150 pounds and can bench press 250 like I could when I was a swimmer in high school. Thanks for reading.
