In the mid 60s thru to mid 70s I worked in the now defunct Spanish City fairground in Whitley Bay UK. I had two air rifle ranges, helped on a Winchester and Remington .22 range and also had a coconut shie for a season. Fun but hard work, in the breaks we all played on the slots or pinballs and I always wanted to own a pinball. After retiring I took up pinball restoration in a small way, one or two a year so far. I've stuck to Williams and Bally after a very hard time with a Gottlieb Flying Carpet. Here in the UK parts aren't easy to come by! We did have lots of arcades but our weather ruined old EMs stored in garages and sheds. My mission is to bring some back to life. Last one was a Lucky Ace shown in the photos, it doesn't live too far away now. Currently I'm almost done on a Big Valley and debating whether it's worth saving a Seven up with an awful backglass , just maybe I can get a modern plastic replacement made???? Lots of shops doing vinyl and plastic signage these days.
