Hi everyone! I'm still looking for these, except for the Select Dr. D and the Dr. Perky. I'm also looking for FoodHold and Stop & Shop Dr. Bob, but I couldn't locate pics of those. They might look similar to the Bi-Lo Dr. Bob in the picture, which I still need. Also note that there are at least three designs of Dr. Smooth that I don't already have. These are all older cans, though most are aluminum. Thanks for any help; I know these cans must be out there somewhere!

I found some soda cans about five years ago when picking up a huge full beer can collection, it was a lot of work- the guy opened a basement door as we were carrying the last of the beer cans out and he asked me if I wanted them. All 5000 of them. Um....yes!!!! Two trips to Madison and numerous people pointing and laughing on the road-driving home with an overloaded Dodge crammed with cans. They were then stuffed in my attic, I’m starting to go through some boxes before the roof caves in. Ziphippie Bjorn

Saw some Dr. 38 (doctor pepper knock- offs) in the store today and thought of the Dr. Pepper imitation guy: do you need a Dr. 38 can or cans?

in the store again and I saw a 8 oz Dr. Thunder. It was in Walmart this time, so I assume you either have it or can get it?

I am talking to DrWho, by the way.

Let me know if you need me to pick some up for you

What a coincidence I was at a Walmart, just this weekend, and saw this one. I couldn't remember if I had this design or not, but it turned out that I did. Thank you, again, for your offer. DrWho

I have the Doc's Cola & Root Beer, also Ginger Ale, but not the other ones.

As to the picture, sorry, no. I need to work on that.

Calling for Dr.Who. I couldn't find the other thread mention you wanted a Dr. B. ?? I pick the smaller cans at the HEB. They do have 12 oz cans in regular and diet Dr.B but have to buy them in a 12 pack !!!! Dr. Choice is top opened.Both cans are empty. Other interesting note. On my way down to Texas, stop at the gas station in Illinois happen to see Dr.Pepper with a Chicago Bears logo on them. I did not buy them because they only sell them in a 12 pack. Can't buy individual can . Let me know if you are interesting in them.

Thank you for the picture, and for keeping me in mind on your trip. I have both designs, though. I agree with you that it can be frustrating to be unable to purchase single cans. Thanks again! DrWho
