awarded his vintage vending machine.
If you’re a golf or stock car racing enthusiast and haven’t heard of Kimble, you’re likely not alone. Though his name doesn’t circulate through PGA or NASCAR circles, his work does. Twice a year, his machines take center stage, standing in the winner’s circle at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and on display at the entrance to East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.
He is the maker of the trophies—the gleaming, fully restored, vintage, 1950’s-era Coca-Cola vending machines awarded to winners of the Coca-Cola 600 and the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola.
This year, Kimble took Coca-Cola Journey behind the scenes at Remember When Collectibles, going step by step through the process of fully restoring a 1956 Vendo 44 machine to make it trophy-ready for the 2013 TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola.
