Im a 45 year old from Australias historic home of pinball (Newcastle). Like many kids from that era i spent most weekends of the 70's & 80's in the many various pinnie parlours scattered across Newcastle.
I was also fortunate enough to have an aunt that worked for A.Hankin & Co (Australias only Pinball manufacturer) in Newcastle which meant as a kid we always had a pinnie at home.
Fast forward 30 years & i have re-ignited my pinball passion with the purchase of a new Stern Spiderman machine, its a great game but they sure have gone up in price.
