Rich Allen is a refrigerator renovator in Tucson, Arizona, but he's no ordinary fix-it guy. He is the man to call if you want to install dual-temperature wine coolers inside a vintage 1909 wooden icebox, or if you want to get a working version of a jet-age Philco refrigerator that opens, vault-like, with a spin of its V-shaped handle. Once you've picked out the unrestored fridge of your dreams, Allen will customize it to your needs. He'll clean it, he'll drain any old refrigerants from the compressor, and he'll hide a new, high-efficiency unit behind it. He'll even have handles cast, polished, and gilded, if you want. For significantly less cash, Allen also sells new vintage-look refrigerators in colors like pink and teal, but he says his customers prefer restored machines over new ones at a rate of ten to one, and there's a six- to eight-month waiting list for his custom work. His craft, he says, is much like restoring old cars, except harder. After all, he says, car restorers "can buy all the parts for a '55 Chevy. We have to make them."
