    Default American Restoration

    The American Restoration show on history channel is going to have a 1948 Coca Cola machine that was destroyed in the flooding from Hurricane Irene from this summer. The machine comes from the Agway down the street from me. I know a few people on here like doing restoration type stuff. It is on at 10:30 pm.

    I love the show but could never afford to have them restore anything for me. I've seen a few pieces that left with some shoddy looking work. Still, I watch every show.

    I used to restore Coca cola machines before I changed positions at Coca Cola. That certainly would be a cool show for me to watch.

    Did you see the last episode?. The guy was so busy trying to show off for the camera while shooting a Ruger 10/22 and stuck his finger on the tip of the barrel and blew his thumb off. Then blamed it on the rifle as a malfunction.
