I think the popular vote is going to unrestored in all aspects of collecting to include gas pumps and pedal cars.  A complete switch for some years back when "over the top" restorations were the going thing. I never liked all the pin striping and extra decals and chrome plating everything.Restoring signs has almost in all cases been a NO NO. I think Jukeboxes and Pinballs have to be restored due to the electronics involved.

Now its a decision to or not to based on condition. Those that can go either way are tough! Take for instance my Pepsi/Coke Selmix Dispenser...
