My faith in humanity and the reality television viewers has been restored. Seriously. The Jukebox at from Angel Delgadillo’s Route 66 has finally been properly restored, repaired and returned to Seligman. And it works.
Although its not official but I will take credit where I can, the fans of TheVegasTourist.com may have a large hand in getting it done. Several weeks ago I was up at the store and noticed the Jukebox missing. I asked about it and was informed that Rick’s Restoration was up, retrieved it and took it to a real restoration company that deals with vintage electronics and would have it fixed at his (Rick’s) expense.
Apparently there was a lot of bad social media press about the jukebox and how Rick screwed over Angel… ( Click to read our post Bad, Bad, American Restoration) Read the comments I could post. Sometimes I wished I had saved the ones I deleted!
I know several other bloggers picked up on what I wrote and wrote their own piece about the jukebox and Rick’s greedy ways about doing business. So Rick finally needed to make his wrong, right.
The bad news is that the family agreed that they are happy the jukebox works, but don’t want it damaged and have to pay another $4,000 in repairs and restoration. So they had it moved over to Seligman Rec Center/pool hall. Where the tourist public and especially button pushing children, can’t damage it.
So from The Vegas Tourist to all you who put in your two cents worth, We Thank You!!
