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.
