I grew up in the 70's and 80's playing old EM pinball machines at the local bowling alley. That was when I got hooked. In 1981 friends of the family opened a huge arcade near my house. I spent every day there for a couple years. As I got older and pinball faded away and arcades went away, I would only play occasionally at the movie theatre or somewhere there may be one or two machines. As an adult, I still craved to play and having more disposable income, I purchased my own machines to play and tinker working on them. I sold my entire collection in 2017 to move to Florida. After that didn't work out, I moved back to VA and am looking to start my collection over again. Thanks for reading!
