There wasn't a soul around, except for the woman who owned the store and bar. This town had been bypassed by interstate 80 some years ago, and traffic was redirected a ways from Knowles. She began to tell me how they used to do so well with the business when highway traffic went through, and her son ran the repair shop, and relatives did the towing and so on. Her husband died several years back, and the other relatives moved on, the income would not support them.
    You may be wondering what this has to do with this Jukebox thread, but I'll continue.
    By this time, my mug was empty, but I was still thirsty, as well as being intrigued with this woman's story, so I ordered another. I asked the owner if she'd mind if I looked around a bit, and I noticed that some of the furnishings had prices marked on them, including a jukebox identical to the one pictured in this e-bay auction, marked $600. She told me everything was for sale, she could no longer afford to have water trucked in 50 miles each way, and she was packing up and moving out. There were no fresh water wells as everything had salt in it from underground seepage from mineral deposits. I wish I could have afforded the jukebox, but I didn't have $600 to my name then. I did buy a neon beer sign from the '50's, only $20, and a small antique coffee table that I had for many years. Out of curiousity, in the mid '90's, I stopped by on my way to pick up a car in Ogden, the buildings were completely gone, like nothing had ever been there, the only thing I could even find to tell me this place existed, were several bullet riddled cars down in a gulley behind where the salvage yard had been. All else was gone! I wonder who ended up with the Jukebox, and if the old gal ever found a place she liked again.
    Damn John, I was expecting a happy ending to the story!

    I thought those kind of storys only happened in Hollywood movies John.
    Sad story, I wonder what happened to the old girl and her place.

    My Jukebox is the same but far more Snazzy looking as it wnet into Soda shops etc.

    I saw a guy at a jukebox fair selling a resotred one, not blowing my own trumpet but it was no where as nice as mine and he didn't bother trying to match the old plastic colours with replacements he'd gotten.

    He was trying to sell it for 6000.

    Back then that was $12000.
    Everything's good!

    Bloody hell.... this is a steal at the moment.

    Mine cost me about $1700 unrestored and was far too gone to be able to play.

    All this seems to need is the plastic/ perspex for the top, easy to replace with green as most restorers do for an easy replacement.

    $360..... if I lived in the US I'd be bidding on this.... and f*** me it's only got one hour left to go:

    Cool, I think I saw one of those on a tv show but I am not sure what it was.

    Sound Leisure in the UK hand build new CD jukeboxes (and vinyl I believe), I emailed them to see if they had job vacancies once.

    Take a look at the gorgeous Rocket 88:

    It's based on a Rock Ola 1455! I hope they don't cannibalize original ones just to build a modern CD Jukebox? I'm currently watching a 1455 on Ebay, it's only about 50km away from me but the seller is asking 3000EUR for a Jukebox that still needs some work.

    If the postage were cheaper I'd put the 50 quid one on my Christmas list.

    Last week I was watching and bidding on this sweet machine:



    I was the highest bidder at 1700EUR but a few hours later
    it went up to 2700EUR and even more...too much for me!

    I'm really considering to import an old Jukebox from the
    USA but first I have to find a decent one at a fair price.

    Any ideas?

    Rosmalen in Holand might be your best bet Roland.
    The biggest Jukebox show in Europe, everything sold at UK shows gets bought there first.

    I already heard about Rosmalen but never made it there. You can find nice Jukeboxes in Germany too but the good ones are top dollar and most of them are offered by dealers. The funny thing is that they are listed on Ebay again and again, way too expensive for most people...

    Dang that was a nice one, I like that V on the front but too bad you couldn't get it and I hope you find another good one at a great price.

    Is it Christmas already?

    Yesterday I bought my myself a big Christmas present...



    I finally found a beautiful Jukebox from the late 50s! It's a Rock Ola 1455 from 1957, 200 Selections! It's barely working but missing some parts and has some parts that are not original, e.g. dome and door glass, amplifier needs to be rebuilt (happily humming)...almost an endless list!

    More photos to come!

    Roland, she's beautiful, one of my favourite models after seeing a similar version on an LP cover when I was a kid.

    How did you find her mate?

    The humming's probably the capacitors or a poor earth somewhere.
