I grew up in a small town in west sonoma county with three bars that all had pinball machines.I spent all my allowance on pinball. After seeing the inside of one i thought i could never figure out all those electronics. Now 30 years later,being an auto body painter, i've been collecting and restoring gas and soda machines. When i got the chance to purchase my first machine "diner"  I jumped on it.  Now in the first 6 months of owning my first machine, I now own 4 machines,and enjoy learning how to work on them.I have more fun working on them than playing them. Now I'm addicted to pinball.
