In the late 70th/ early 80th my dad spend some coins and let me play on pinball while he drinks 1-xxx bears in a bar.
In 1992 i was fanzinised by the Terminator 2 and I put a lot of coins in it. This machine stand in the front area of our discotheke. Sometimes I was only there to Play.
I told this story my wife.
Last year (2013) she bought me a T2 and I did not know about this. I was so happy.
It was the first time for my Darling to play on a real pinball machine. She was born in the middle of 80th.
Some month later we got a Theatre of Magic and Scared Stiff. All 3 Pins stand in our living room ane we Play every day :-)
