Links: Peltier


Recommended Posts

There are a lot of links I need to add to this, but I need to get back to reading old threads to find them all. If you have any recent favorites, I'd love to hear about them here or by PM.

Nova group, including Rootbeer Floats:

May 2009: So Whats The Scoop On Peltier Rootbeer Floats, were they only made in a limited size?

This is a pretty powerful thread summarizing information about Rootbeer Floats, Novas, and other members of the extended Nova family. Contributors include David Chamberlain who before this has often been quoted but not been online to contribute personally. I'll keep the other links below at least for the time being, but this is where you should start for an introduction and return to for a summary. (in my opinion - thanks! -sch, 5/22/2009)

Look What I Caught Galen Doing On Camara!, Orange County Show

Peltier Nova History

L@@k !!! My Very First Peltier Root Beer Float !!!, Thank you so much Carole

Pelt Root Beer Float

MM: Root Beer Floats, Novas, and Pink Champagnes (article by David Chamberlain)

NOT Rootbeers:

First of all, if it is not a large marble, 7/8" or 15/16", you already know it cannot be a rootbeer. They were limited edition marbles, all large, all made on a single day in 1989.

If This Aint A "peltier Root Beer Float" Then What Is It?, The experts say no! and i wana know why?
