Pinball Crazy

This hobby started awhile back for me when I traded a stand up arcade machine for EM pinball Lucky Strike.  Ever since that day I have been addicted to pinball machines.  Unlike the arcade machines I previously collected every game was different and unpredictable...I loved it.  I don't remember playing pinballs much growing up in arcades but I soon fell in love with the game play.  Since that first pin I still enjoy the hunt to find them, clean them, play them and when I grow tired of them pass them on to the next person to have some fun. Originally I thought I would maybe have 1 or 2 machine to play, I started to learn how to clean and then work on them and the rest is history!  I like to keep around 5 games in my collection at a time.  I started with older lower end machines and now enjoy the 90's Williams and Bally's the most but still like picking up an older one now and then for fun :-)
