First is always best

Got my first pinball in college. It was a 1973 Williams Gulfstream being sold off from a coin op rental company that was located down the street from my parents house. It was in pretty good shape, and was great fun through college. Gave it to a friend when I graduated. Big Mistake, should have kept it.

I have another Gulfstream now, but it's not the same. And not only because my current machine is in less than pristine condition. Your first is always the best.

Also have several other pins, working up to a real addiction.

Pin*Bot is still one of my all time favorite machines, good luck with the future acquisitions; welcome to the Pinside!

HelloDead - Yes, realaxation and volleyball on the beach. Great theme, and cartoonish pointy people.
That was great, because I was in Houghton Mich (coldest, snowiest place on earth) at the time.

NP - Thanks, Pinbot rules! Going to keep it for the forseeable future.

My first favorite machine was Gulfstream too. I'm about to buy one... wondering if I will be happy or disappointed. We'll see.
