Child of the 80's

Child of the 80's

I grew up a child of the 80's. I would sometimes sneak off from school so I could play my favorite video games and Pinball machines. When I was older and had more income I was able to purchase some of my old favorite games for home use. I had at the time a collection that included Tron, Asteroids Deluxe, Centipede, Time Pilot, Rush'n Attack, Star Trek (pinball), 1942. I had these for several years and then my son was born and I had to sell them all to make room. I really wished I had been able to keep them. Fast forward to today now my son is 15 years old and I have the itch again to start another collection. I recently bought my first piece of this new collection with a Data East Jurassic Park pinball machine. It is is good shape but still needs a little love. I haven't worked much on Pinball machines but from what I have seen so far on mine it doesn't look to be an impossible task but challenging for sure. I hope to pull some of the collective knowledge from the forums on this website to help in that endeavor.

Glad to have you on Pinside TxJay. Don't be intimidated with a little help and some dedication you can handle most problems that arise from a machine. Use the forum or ask Lloyd tab in upper right of the forum when you need help.

Howdy! If you ever need any local help, Hit me up! I've been working on machines in the area for about a year now.
