id drop a twenty on the squat way before I would give a dollar for the "foamy". I don't see anything very cool about those modern bottles.

Some people like those foamy screw-capped things. To me, they're throwaways, a modern, machine-made turd. The McKinney, while common, is an attractive old soda with character and class. I happen to own two of the McKinney bottles, and paid a grand total of nine bucks for both of 'em. That's 900 times what I'd give for ol' foamy, provided I had one of those grimy, sticky, nasty pennies in the cup holder of my truck that I really just wanted rid of.

It's sad to say, but I could see the foamy Pepsi bringing more than the McKinney on eBay. I remember drinking plenty of those, and I'm only 32! Foamy himself even asks you to "Dispose of him properly", and you don't see that on the McKinney [;)] ~Jim

While i understand the disgust but those foam will disappear faster thatn the others so will be more collectible and worth more which means when sold you can buy more of the good bottles lol

Its the foamy! No brainer, look at that beautiful shine on that metal cap and vibrant colors on the label! That glass shines like a diamond. That squat is made all sloppy, glass is non uniform, they didn't even take the time to get the bubbles out of the glass.:)

You can give it away, there's a taker right here @email me.com. That's only because I don't like Pepsi® though. Moxie® on the other hand... [:)]
PS; full please and I'll pay shipping.. NOT
