Pinball Dad

I'm a kid of the 80's and grew up playing arcade games and pinball machines. My dad and brother and I found old pinball machines, fixed them up and sold them. Now I'm a responsible-ish 40 something dad who's trying to pass my love of old machines down to my kids. After restoring such classics as Donkey Kong and Ms. Pac it was time to try my hand at the pinball machines I loved as a kid.

I've restored two so far and am on the hunt for more...

Welcome PD! glad to hear you're trying to pass on the tradition. First get them playing and then helping to restore with you. Good luck!

Welcome to Pinside! One day I'm going to get around to restoring a DK. My favorite arcade game of all time.
