My name is Larry Zartarian, and I have been collecting pinball machines, mostly from the late 40's, 50's and 60's, since 1993.

I strictly collect Gottlieb woodrail and wedgehead pinball machines from this era, but also have an interest in Genco and some Williams 50's woodrails. To me, this represents the Golden Era of pinball -- from a player's perspective of artwork, game-play strategy, and overall fun.

I am on the Board of Directors of the Pacific Pinball Museum located in Alameda, CA, and have close to 180 games in my collection.

Welcome to Pinside wedgeheadjunkie Larry. Glad you are here on Pinside. Thanks for all you do for pinball w/ the PPM. Gottlieb made some great e-m's and early ss pinball machines w/ nice artwork. First pinball machine I ever bought was a wedgehead add-a-ball e-m type ('74 Gottlieb Free Fall)
