You would drink them going down the road and pitch them out the window because you couldnt get that nickle for them...LOL

So I took that into consideration several years ago and have acquired over 1000 NDNR soda bottles. With very few duplicates. I even have a "Mountain Dew Green" Coke bottle. I told the wife, I am banking on these being worth something some day, since everyone throwed them away. I have a few that are worth a couple hundred dollars a peice all ready.

Heres some of my collection.

You definitely have a nice collection of bottles. I like seeing the old glass and it is just like the old magazine ads I love seeing the old marketing.

Fresca, that brings the memory of a bad taste to my mouth LOL! Nice collection. What I remember about the glass pop bottles was those coolers from the 60's where the bottles actually sat in cold water and you pulled the bottle along and up through the gate that opened when you put your money in. The pop always seemed colder coming out of one of those coolers.

I agree with Brian on the Fresca. I probably have seen only half of them that I can recall. Great collection and hobby.

Cool collection! I remember most, but you have a few that were probably 'local' brands.

That can be a profitable hobby. Some of those are unique and valuable.

And speeking of local brands, I remember a trip to the Wisconsin Dells when I was young and I wonder if any of the guys up there remember Kickapoo Joy Juice?

That is an impressive collection. I also like the older advertising and items from my past. I figure the brands that I don't recognize must be regional. Thanks for sharing this, it's interesting.
