And so it began.

My wife bought me my first pin when I was 30.  I originally went for a Ms. Paceman, but then saw Cyclone and thought it was really cool.  After using eBay to fix it up a little I was hooked.  I bought an early model TZ and kept it original (but switched the clocks board for one with color changing LEDs).  My addiction has expanded to a Pinball Refinery Metallica Pro.  Luckily my wife likes pins/arcades as much as I do.  Some people buy cars, boats,or motorcycles...I'm making my house into an arcade and graffiti/industrial art gallery.

update...I have change the arcade.  Sold TZ and Cyclone to fund Star Wars premium.   No Good Gofers is here!  I snagged a great Tales From The Crypt (breaking in my new/used pinhauler).  Most recently my wife and I trekked to Spooky Pinball in Benton, Wisconsin and picked up an Alice Cooper Nightmare Castle...such a great pin and from a great company!  I blew my pinball fund for 2020...going back to Spooky!  The addiction continues

Update...what an addiction.  Metallica, TFTC, Star Wars are gone.  Rick and Morty (soon to be sold), Americas Most Haunted, Halloween, Scooby Doo, The Simpsons Pinball Party, and ACNC are the current collection.

 My adventures in pinball continue...and I have Spooky to thank...yes, there are a lot of great pinball companies now...such a great time for pinball...but Spooky has a special place with me.  I'm a lucky guy.  Cant wait to see what the future is much fun on the horizon.

And...R&M is getting sold to make room.  A cherry The Simpsons Pinball Party should be delivered soon.   Next...Texas Chainsaw!!
