That looks really awesome!!! I remember the Surge machines and they were really cool!! I hope that they have Vault machines all over the place one day. Id like to see one in person. Oh and I wonder why Vault isn't the top drink on the machine? It doesnt look like it is. Don't they usually put the pop on top that the machine is displaying?

Here in my town, we have a Vault machine outside our Wal-Mart (where I work). It has just a regular lineup of Coke products, I believe. Has both Vault and Vault Zero, in 20 oz. bottles. No Mello Yello though :(

I don't even remember what kind of machine it replaced. I think it was a Coca-Cola machine, but I'm not 100% sure.

Here in Mexico you'll only see Coke vending machines, no Fanta, no Sprite, no Coke Light, no Powerade vending machines... once in Leon I saw Ciel vending machines but not anymore...

All they are doing in most cases is replacing the front of the machine. You open the first door, unscrew a few things, break a few other plastic things, and install the new front, and put everything back together. Our cold drink manager is really pushing the new fronts.

I think dow is printing the new decals. I haven't seen any leave the factory with that decal. Might be a third party having them printed.

and why is NY so much more expensive. Our vending machine sodas always cost a dollar or more. There are no sodas, including vault, under a dollar in pretty much any stores. I see a can of coke on that pic is 50 cents

You're right... one example happened here in a vending machine in "El Parian", Coke bottlers replaced the front of the machine (that was really really old, around the beginning of the 90's) and they replaced it for a brand new front with the "Toma lo bueno" graphics... :D but the sides still have the 90's graphics, they haven't changed it yet... :rolleyes:

That's got to be a rarity, all 3 of the big ones in one machine. Got any pictures? I want to see this!

The one thing I hate about machines, especially the older ones, is... lets say you wanted an Upper 10 or Canada Dry or something, and it gave you an RC or an A & W Root Beer. That's just an example, but you know what I mean.

At the K-Mart in Uniontown, PA, I got Cotton Club flavors from a machine that had buttons for Nehi flavors.

no, sorry, my digicam died a horrible and tragic death of hitting concrete from 6 feet up... :(

anyways, i asked them about it, and they said that they baught a bunch of old parts, bill validator, panels, etc and assembled it all together, and they just go to the store and buy their favorite drinks to put in it

our kmart has a fruitopia machine, but threre is none in the machine, just lots of powerade

When I was a kid, I wanted to try the american Coca-Cola Classic, so once I saw a vending machine with a Coca-Cola Classic sticker and I thought "OMG! this vending machine has Coke Classic, so I pushed the button and no Coke Classic...a mexican Coke can came out... duh!...

And for example the Coca-Cola bottler in the past San Marcos fair, ran out of Coca-Cola stickers for the vending machines in the fair, so they placed Coca-Cola vanilla stickers but they covered the word "vanilla" with a permanent marker... or in some vending machines they place Green Apple Manzana Lift stickers but when you push the button on it, a regular Manzana Lift cames out...
