Remember the magical Zoltar Speaks machine from Big? Well, the spot where it once stood now boasts a Pepsi vending machine. And if you sip a drink from it, you'll either age 20 years or turn into Tom Hanks.

There are certain things I think should always be in certain places, even if they are brand new versions.

There should always be a Zoltar machine there. Like the bench from Forrest Gump, there should always be a bench in that spot.

There are tons of historical landmarks that get preserved throughout time, why can't certain things like this get the same treatment?
