Growing up with Playing pinball

Growing up just outside of Philadelphia I would constantly go to the local 7-11 and play the new arcade and pinball machines. The earliest I remember is 1991 my Uncle was a police officer who worked the night shifts and would wake my cousin and I up at 3am on his break and take us to 7-11 to play Whirlwind. I was hooked then. In the summers my family would vacation in Ocean City, New Jersey and I would constantly play Funhouse, Attack From Mars, Police Force and many other greats on the boardwalk all night long. I always wanted one of my own and for Christmas 2012 my girlfriend bought me a Funhouse. I can't wait to get more.
