Starting Out in Pinball

I started playing Pinball at a young age. Before I was born my father obtained 1978's Stern Nugent. My aunt used to work at Modern Vending in Indianapolis (May she rest peacefully). I began to play Nugent as soon as I could reach the buttons. Being so little i had no concept of what the scoring or rules were, I was just having a blast! My  parents used to have parties and the Ted Nugent Pinball (and Music) was the center of parties! Through highscool, my mother had to relocate, and the pin sat abandoned in her garage. Come 2019 I got my first house and drug the pin out of the dust and began to work on it and restore it. Se wont win any beauty contests, but this is still the best playing pinball I own. I still remeber the first time I got the bonus multiplier and was amazed by the beeps the machine made. Little did I know this would become quite a hobby for me...
