That old refrig. does it operate by burning gas? If it does it could be dangerous in a confined space because they used ammonia instead of freon. Of course nobody haunting ever gets enough ammonia do we ? (Latex fumes, American latex that is.)

Very cool score Ken!! We have a similar one in our haunt, but it doesn't work anymore at all. But it's all rusty and yummy and good eye candy and will be even better when stuffed full of bloody body parts!

And yes Jim, i don't think I even react to ammonia fumes anymore after all of my latex stuff.... yeesh! :) I'll start to get scared when the whiff of ammonia becomes a comforting scent, LOL. :)
