I played pinball as a kid... like a lot of us.

I played pinball as a kid... I have so many good memories of hours upon hours of pinball play at local arcades and convenience stores. In the early 90's I had a chance to buy a Williams High Speed from a convenience store located close to where a dentist friend of mine had an office. Two weeks before my agreed deal with the owner, my dentist friend swooped in and bought the machine right out from under me. Oh, the horror (and anger/disappointment) that I had to live thru in not getting my game. Fast forward 20 plus years later, I stumbled on D and D Pinball in Tucson where they had a High Speed! I'd come up to Tucson often just to play it. And after getting to know the folks a bit, they then put it up for sale and I bought it for myself for my 50th bday.  Robert and Constance have since become very good friends, and High Speed resides with me in my little house in this kooky hippie town. Slowly starting to want to learn how to do the fixes on it.. and looking forward to years of running the red light!

Once you learn how to fix it, the hard part will be stopping at one machine. Good luck on the fixes.
