Ok, I am a collector of collections and am looking on some feedback for my coca cola crates.  Although most collectors wouldn't dream of doing anything to re-purpose these, I just can't stand the thought of them sitting in a corner "collecting" dust.  The idea that I am thinking about doing is creating a "soda wagon"  attaching 4 wooden wheels and a long wooden handle so that it can be re-valued into a childs heart like the drink once was...  Thoughts?
