Hi Pinsiders!,

My name is Mike Willett and I live in Eugene, Oregon. I bought my first pinball machine when I was in high school the year 1981. It was a Gottlieb 1975 Atlantis. I had this one and only pinball machine untill 2002. Durring the time from 1981 to about 2000 I was mostly interested in 1967/68 Mercury Cougars. I had many of these cars and fully restored a few that ended winning national Cougar shows.

Around 2002 I was tired of cars and wanted to get into pinball machines. Always loved the EM machines out of the 60's and 70's so that is what I started with as I still had my Atlantis. By 2004 I was getting interested in the SS machines and this is when I purchased my first DMD machine, Star Trek the Next Generation. Then it all went down hill from there, have had many DMD Bally/Williams machines over the years and up graded to the ones I own now and are listed here on Pinside. 

Thanks for reading, give me a call and/or email if you are ever in my area and would like to play a little pinball.
