Story of a lifetime

Written by way2wyrd, published March 14th, 2012. 5 comment(s).

Ive always loved pinball.  I remember as a kid playing Atari Hercules with my uncle in boston.

In my 20s the bar we hung out at always had 2 or 3 machines. T2 TAF TZ Tommy  among them.

I was lucky enough to have a pinball shop close to me so i bought my first pin in 92.  A Xenon in pretty good shape for $500.   I thought it was the deal of a life time.

Since then Ive added a number of machines , mostly EMs and a few SS. 

That is all

    Xenon for $500?!? Nice score W2W!
    That has to be one of my all time favorite BG's.

    Cool story. Glad to hear your first pin purchase was a Bally product. And that's when Bally was truly Bally.
