My brother Brody,twin sister Samantha and I gave our father a great Father's Day present,a vintage Coca Cola vending machine and he loved it.My brother,Samantha and I decided to pitch in,he always wanted one and found one from the 1950s.Needed some work and had it fully restored.My father has a room full of Coca Cola stuff in his collection and a vending machine was not in his collection yet.We did put it in the right spot,delivered it this morning covering it up.My mother was told of this,she blind folded him so he could not see it at first.

It brought back memories too,always remembering his father giving him a dime to buy a coke as a kid.Kindly asked and his father said yes.His father is no longer around,he passed away  3 years ago.Looks like this

That's awesome! My MIL has an outside kitchen that's decorated in vintage stuff. She'd love something like that. She has an antique freezer or something like that but BIL's kids have ruined it.
