A spark has lit in me

In 1982, I made my first step in an arcade. I really enjoyed my experience, especially playing pinball machines. I finally bought my first pinball machine 14 years later but not for long because my studies had just finished and it was not easy to find a job. The lack of money forced me to sell it less than a year later. In December 2018, I was browsing the classified ads when I saw a pinball machine. A spark has lit in me and I have finally bought, not one, but two pinball machines in January 2019. I realized quickly that symmetrical playfields were not my favourite ones. So, I sold them and bought five other machines in five months. All of them have an asymmetrical playfield and I love it. I also appreciate the art of Gordon Morison and the design of Ed Krynski. 1973 to 1977 is another great era for Gottlieb's pinball machines.
