Cost quite a bit more to fill the machines up but the kids and younger folks are entertained. All my antique vending machines dispense for a nickel. Had a chance at an old Kotex machine a few weeks back.................I passed on that too!!!!

It may have been later than the thirties, but stations used to have a spark plug in a bird cage with the notation " This bird was caught stealing gas."
