I took this picture in a West Texas gas station in 1990. A small hand written notice stated that the coke machine was not for sale.
Years later I came across Wim Wender’s wonderful book “Written In The West” and fell in love with the photograph with the Coca Cola machine.
Last year I stumbled by chance upon Gila Bend, AZ and realised I remembered the name from somewhere. And there in an old bric a brac shop, next to the old hotel, was the original machine in Wim’s 1983 picture…it was stated on a note that it was not for sale.
I guess they never are.
