It's just fridge, albeit a cool one. What the snot can you do with it anyway? You certainly can't take it for a drive.

Drill away.

I am entertained by the level of enthusiasm created by my old fridge. The nice young lady that gave it to me couldn't get rid of it fast enough. I guess we are a unique bunch.

I bought a 60+ yr old Hotpoint fridge about a month ago, it works great and is just really cool. Its in pretty good shape for its age. I don't think I can bring myself to drill it.

I have a 1947 Philco in the patio from my grand parents house, it sits in the morning sun 3 hours a day. It operates for 95 to 108 seconds every 2 1/2 to 3 hours. The new Maytag frig runs 70% of the time and told it was normal.
Wattage meter used on the Philco beats the larger new Maytag by 11 times. Non energy star my ass that Maytag will be in the dumps first. I bet you would turn in a clean 56 Ford Pick UP for a brand new Toyota with that clunker law.
Not to offend or attack you just how wrong people are without using a watt meter on old equipment with facts. Done ranting. Oh no taps will be drilled into the Philco.

I always used to wonder if people with accents typed with them as well. I guess now I know. Again, sweet fridge. Drill it. Sweet fridge-sweet kegerator.

My freezer is so old it was made by International Harvester. I didn't even know they made freezers. But it works like a champ.
