Your keychain fob and polo shirt show pictures of your airplane, so why not the soda machine in your family/media room or hangar? That's the thinking from Denver-based American Soda Machines, which has made a business of restoring and customizing vintage pop vending machines. While the company has units dating back to the 1940s and '50s, the '60s-era Vendo 63 reportedly makes the best "canvas" for custom artwork. Prices for these start at $2,695 plus shipping, but once you own the machine, the price of a can of soda is strictly up to you.

“ While it may be tempting to use broad generalizations about the way business aircraft are most often used in America today, let’s not neglect the importance of business aviation as a crucial competitive asset to companies, an economic driver and lifeline to communities large and small. ”

-Ed Bolen, President of the National Business Aviation Association
