What would you do if old refrigerators started popping up everywhere?

    I put the word out I was looking for a 2nd old refrigerator for my buddy thinking it may take months for one to turn up for a reasonable price. A few days later, I found an International Harvester for him for a whopping $60. He loves it more than his wife now, I think. Here's the dilemma; they are coming out of the woodwork. I have a GE I traded 3 jars of honey for (I'm a beekeeper) and now a guy called me wanting to sell  Norge, Kelvinator  IH and Admiral for $50 each. I'm only half way thru with my very first build and am enjoying the heck out of it. I can see doing custom themes like a black Harley Davidson build or a camouflaged one for some of my buddies in Ducks Unlimited. What do you guys think? It's lots of fun, I'm learning about metal working and I love detail restoration work. Do you think it would be worth it? Thanks for your thoughts. This is a great site. 
  2. Small modern refrigeration system and 3 - 1/6 bbl kegs should fit. Some nice taps coming out the door.

    If you have the time and skill I would go for it. I've seen them on Craigslist going for 400 to 500 and the pics don't look all that impressive. I think as theme smokers or like four20 said kegerators you'd sell them pretty easily. I don't know if you'd get rich, but you'd have fun and make a little cash on the side! Good luck! Post some pics!
