    Coca-Cola Christmas

    As some here may know, I collect Coca-Cola stuff. So since we spend most of our time at our shop, we figured it would be better to set up a few items there. Here's a couple of pics:





    Here's our next project - a Coca-Cola cooler couch:



    It's a cooler from the 1950's era, somewhat modified now. I'm going to give it a shot at doing the upholstery work on it. When we were cleaning it up and getting it ready for the body work and paint, we found a 1917 silver half-dollar buried in the crudge.

    Oh yeah, and here's our security guard. Can you tell he's been hanging around for a while:

    Kevin...

    Cool couch...

    I also realized that you're only a couple of hours from Newberry...I might have to take a Harley trip on some sunny afternoon...are you always around?
    Perhaps some time when you have another selection of holsters.
    Can you make something different, if you have the weapon?

    Stay armed...stay safe!

    Neat stuff, Kevin. I wish I had some of the coolers my dad had in his store. Old wet box coolers that circulated cold water would take a Coke from room temp to 34 in about 20 minutes. I have seen the Coke man stick bottles (small Coke) in the water that had just come off the truck in July or August and have them explode in his hand. Water temp was 28 it didn't freeze because it constantly circulated. Bottle from sun at 100 to water in box at 28 results in disaster. The couch is much like the cooler he had when he sold the business to my cousin in 1979.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Very cool. I like the couch/cooler especially. Always neat to modify / reuse old stuff.

    You're welcome to come by the shop any time - we're there Monday-Saturday. I'm usually always around, and almost always have my HD at the shop. So I'd welcome the opportunity to take a short break and go cruise for a bit.

    We often are able to make something different. If I don't have the weapon, then I would need to borrow yours. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
