Hey Folks!

Had a pinball machince on my Bucket list for sometime now. In 1978-1979 I was living in Dallas, Texas and was 16-17 years old. I was working for one tough ass framer honing in on my framing skills ( I started when I was 13). On Fridays after work, me and my brother and  a guy named Frank Sinn (Who worked for Texas Instruments) would go to Aladdin's Castle at Valley View Mall and play pinball until they closed most of the time. Ever since those days of conquering any new machince that came through the doors, I was hooked. So, after I built my poker table, I was ready for the machince.. So after researching how to purchase a pinball machine. I found a Maverick about 2 hours away. So, the journey begins and I only want ONE!!

I have had a high end one for a few years--love it. Incredibly underrated game which I still play regularly.
