  1. it's just a coca cola poster that has been glued on a wood box, if the poster is original it's missing all the bottom and top
  2. you can't restore it, the frame can be repainted bu the signs are made of tin and impossible to restore, if you don't like the item that way, wait to find one in pristine condition
  3. ouch, sorry but it's a recent poorly made fantasy item, there was never an original of this thing and was produced by someone to deceive, to age or value at all for this piece, doesn't worth keeping it
  4. why restoring ? if you restore it, you will loose all it's history and the original coca cola artwork
  5. nice find
  6. Welcome to CW, you should keep them and show us the rest of your collection, they would be georgous on your wall

  16. myersshon, it is for sure a FANTASY item if you be sure buy the Allan Petretti's Coca-Cola Collectibles Price Guide 12th edition
  17. the driver is there but hard to see on pictures with the body on, here is a picture of it before I reassemble it : http://s30.postimg.org/mer3tmopt/image.jpg
  18. Thanks for the comments and love, when I see a restored sign I'm always asking how much of this sign is still original as it was redone now, is it still an original piece or a recent one as it was res...
  19. great toys, I see there is another "Tim the tool man"'s fan here, like he said Real men don't need instructions
  20. splendid pedal car, you don't need to know it's value as it's a great gift from your grand father and a good way to remember him, forget the value, think about this great heritage
