I've pretty much done exactly this..
1st pin was Space Shuttle. I didn't remember the game visually at ALL...I was born in 81', but once I looked it up on Youtube the sound...holy crap that took me right back to my early arcade years.
Picked up a Pinbot for 200, that was a dream find, and a grail.. I spent a stupid amount of time playing the NES Pinbot as a kid, never could find the actual pinball game, then stumbled on this working pinbot at a garage sale for 200.. talk about a coronary find. Ended up selling it to pay for...
STTNG. Played it in an arcade when I would go to visit relatives. It was located in a FEC in Oklahoma City area called "Perfect Swing" (They had a golf driving range go figure..). Played the TAR out of that game to the point it was the only thing I spent tokens on when we went there, and usually spent hours at a time on the machine upstairs in blissful pinball solitude. Picked one up right after TPF for 1400, 95% working. Needs some minor fixes and the GI connectors repinned to get it back up to spec, but it plays great and is loads of fun.
