Garage Gizmo Turns Pals into Profit

Corvette Vending Machine

Tired of supplying your buddies with beers and sodas when they're hanging out at your house? Why not get yourself a vending machine, and stock it with their favorite beverages?

Get a cool vintage one with custom art-say, an automotive or a racing theme, perfect for the garage or man cave-and it will be a conversation piece that also turns a profit. American Soda Machines ( can work up a design featuring any image you like, using stock photos or your own, on their restored vintage machines. The squared-off, 1960s-style provides the biggest canvas, but the company also offers the older, rounded-top and chest-type styles. Prices for a custom machine at $2695, while a restored beverage-themed machine is $2495.

One of my many brother alone would pay for this in a year.
