I was given a 35 year old fridge and after plugging it in to my kill-a-watt meter found only a few of the new fridges out there were more efficient due to it being on the smaller end of the full size with a single door with the freezer inside, no auto defrost, no ice maker, no other junk.
I have some issue with this whole idea, mostly because it seems like it's hard to find appliances that are made in the US and that Americans tend to do dumb things with their old fridges, like put them in their garage to keep beer cold.
