So it looks like it's Texaco gumball machine season!
This is the second Texaco themed restoration this month. This time, it's a Sky Chief! Someone way back decided that spray painting this old 60's Acorn brown would be a good idea. Well, I sandblasted all of that off, tore down the coin mech, cleaned and polished all the inside parts and rebuilt it. The body got got a nice bright red and white paint job, and Friday night I made new waterslide Sky Chief decals for the sides and globe. Add some rubber counter top feet on the bottom, and here you have it! Much more fun than... brown.
