A french story for a pin pasionnate

Hi Guys,

I have discovered pinballs in "café" at least 40 years back... I'm a passionate... from the EM period... But my age is SS, the first SS of course... So I was first a gottlieb addict. My particularity was I got the opportunity to play on GTB preserie Krull and Going nut when they were first imported in France early 80's... For a week only before they were sent to Paris...

I have discovered pinball, first with a WMS Derby day when I was 10... A long time ago... then my father was an arcade room manager for a couple of years, and I played on GTB EM pins for a while... until he offers me an EM pin for my sixteen...

Then I entered hight school, and discovered SS pinballs, early 80's... In my local region GTB was the rule... Other brand were more imported in northland... But I discovered much later Bally's pins... and WMS later again...

So... My passion on pins brings me on French forums and my particularity was to let frech people capable to catch US technical infos... So as my experience and job make me skilled enough to translate english to french, I'm placing US posts to French fans understanding... No more, except that I'm doing skill streghtening for cards repairing (and so on) by the way.

So I'm open to discuss for restoration, graphic arts, electronics and so on... Cause I also got some skill in plots and painting... And of course I have done some tries...

There are several years, i'm documenting, so I think it's time for me to go worldwide. Thanks to all for welcoming me...

See you!!! :)
