Right. In November of 2007 (last year) a dream came true for me when I was on holiday with my parents at our holiday home in Arizona and the people that lived next door offered to me a real pinball machine; I took the offer and we had a bloody time getting it to our place for storage.

Here's what it looked like when we first got it:

Here's when we had it in our holiday home, safe from the elements:

Here's when we finally got it home, in our garage, prior to restoring and repairs--no easy task:

Finally, some photo updates om my machine; we worked one the paint, yet we've got a long way to go. Since the machine's CPU was dysfunctional in automaticlly operating the solenoid the launched the ball into the plunger section, I had to get a new solenoid and a red push button so I could manually prep the ball. Red templtes were used from a Gottlieb machine for the coin slots, but when I get a chance, I'll update them. Painting was done and then I'll finish the painting and carry on with some touch ups. I got new rubber bands and light bulbs, some I placed in the scoreboard. Hopefully I'll finish the rest.

Oh no, Im not saying to sell it at all. ^^; I just me saying to find out how valuable of an item you have there. I wouldnt give it up after just getting it and taking time fixing it up.
