Born in '64, I started playing pinball around age five on a "Bronco" (Chicago Coin, 1963). It was located in a neighbor's house across the street, and in a basement filled with toys and other diversions it was almost always top pick. In the late seventies I was occasionally able to rack up credits for resale at a local shopping mall. Loved Gotliebs of the early eighties, especially Haunted House (Tocata and Fugue in D-minor). Fell out of it for a decade, then found DMD machines over pizza and beer in the nineties. Bought my first machine in 2002, a TZ I reimported from Austria. Bought my second, a Whirlwind, in 2015, and am actively expanding my collection now.
