The love (and addiction) for pinball runs deep: never really completely out of mind. Went on a vacation in Florida and conveniently found myself a couple of hours away from a 1960 NAGS for sale.

Fortunately my brother in law was willing to take the ride and help me load her into my car. Crazy part was sneaking the pinball machine into my hotel/resort room on a luggage cart. Bet our cleaning crew never discovered a fully operating pin in a guest's room.

Tricky part will be moving NAGS out when vacation is over and then make the 1,100 mile trip home to NJ.

Thanks! I'm real excited to clean and tune her up once home. NAGS next vacation is going to be a pinball spa treatment: cleaning and regapping all contacts, replacing a few hoss springs and of course, a full pf "body scrub" (aka clean then wax).

Very nice. Go on vacation and find a new game to add to your collection. Can'r get much better than that!

A couple of years ago, my arm was twisted to participate in a group vacation with my wife’s family. Turned out to be one of our best trips thanks to the stern Spider-Man pickup on the way home…paid for with a bunch of $20 bills pulled from an ATM over two days.
