Just thought I'd jump on here and say hello. Recently acquired some relics of my past and looking for more info. I'll save the vintage music stuff for a different post and show off my pinball machine.....

I grew up having a pool table in the house and dad would bring home other "barn finds" when they were too good to pass up. So, we ended up with several full-size arcade games, as well. We had a duck hunting game with a pivoting shotgun, an Army game that you control a turret while trying to blow up enemy tanks/AA depots/etc, and my favorite......a 1979 Bally's KISS pinball. Each was purchased for only $50 and fully functional. Over the years, all were eventually sold off. However, dad could never part with the pinball. Fast Forward 30+ years and now my parents have moved into my guest house. The pinball now resides in my gaming room and gets played almost daily. Needs a few lights checked out and the tune doesn't play the same notes anymore, but it's still sooo much fun right before bedtime. Thanks for letting me share!

^ What they said.

I looked up the KISS pinball machine; it would have been funny if they had mirror images of Gene Simmons at the bottom with flappers resembling long tongues.
