    Quoted from o-din:

    This one was just perfect after eating a healthy lunch.

    Nothing in the world like puking healthy food.

    Neither of us had been on that one in years, for the fear of that. But as we walked by and saw nobody in line, we couldn't resist. Front seat and it was actually quite fun. We also rode the big wooden Ghostrider front row.

    But the mouse coaster Coast Rider is usually our after lunch special as it was also today. First turn after the lift would be brutal if it ever came off the track. Otherwise very tame. Who needs a job anyway?

    Come down hard. You don't want to limp away from that wreck.

    Become a permanent part of Knott Ave. we would. That's why they call them thrill rides.

    You pay your money, you take your chances.

    It's called tolerance boys. You've got to build up tolerance. Hotter the better IMO.

    Used to have a ton of tolerance, now I've lost it unfortunately.

    It's not salad, it's my hair that gets tossed.

    Now THAT's a cool pic !
    Archetypical mid-late 70ies-Style when Pinball was everywhere ... just like the young folks in their pick-ups near the end of "Smokey and the Bandit". Great times, great pic, and not the least reason to be ashamed of !!!

    we need more pics from that time !

    I grew up across OC from him in Huntington Beach, and was always surrounded by surfer dudes like my bro there!

    First real bike was my ‘68 sky blue Schwinn Stingray Deluxe with the 2 speed Bendix automatic. The rich kids got the Krates.

    #117 9 months ago

    Significance is that is shortly after I dropped my first dime in a pinball machine. Hot Line I think it was. Could have been a nickel.

    #118 9 months ago
    Quoted from ElectroMagnetic:The rich kids got the Krates

    Yep, I remember when I was 9 and my brother turned 12 and he got a brand new 10 Speed and those Krates were all lined up.

    Mom said no, you get a new bike when you are 12. At 12 I got his old beat up 10 speed which was after a little disappointment was OK with me.

    That Stingray got jacked outside Pizza Pub when I was inside playing Bally El Toro. Never understood all the hate for that game.

    Could not possibly agree more !!! That's what I always say too - wouldn't change it for anything. And you know what? I STILL have no f***ing cell-phone.

    You are real great guys, cool pics !!! Me I always wished to be in the States ... but at least there were lots of pinball-machines in Germany too.
    And I also feel a bit sad when people hate machines like El Toro, Jublilee or Ro Go --- sure they weren't anything special but the times were fantastic. You just had to be there at that time - if not you can't just get it ... Same thing with FLASH for example - when it arrived in March 1979 it was unbelieveable - we brought tape-recorders to record that sound so we could listen to it at home - no Millenial can ever understand that. Now it's "just another old game" almost nobody gives a sh** about.

    Not just them bro. Another generation that mostly never played pinball before Addams is fighting over Goonies vs. Back to the Future as their dream themes.

    That makes two of us.

    Ooooh yes you're right of course !!! Time flies.
    It seems to me that even young americans don't know who Steve McQueen or Burt Reynolds were. That's very sad.
    And I got downvoted some time ago when I suggested a Burt-Reynolds-themed machine instead of just another Marvelpin - would be a helluva fun, especially with today's technological possibillities...

    Before I got rid of DirectTV, you could punch a cast button and get a picture with a small bio and what other shows they were on.

    I was watching Wanted Dead or Alive and let me tell you, that picture was not Steve McQueen. At least not the one I know.

    #123 9 months ago

    Yes that HURTS to see some british director who wasn't even born when BULLITT came out being more popular nowadays than the REAL and ONE AND ONLY Steve McQueen, unbelieveable. It's like you would search for "Pinball Machine" and pictures of V-Pins were appearing. That SUCKS !!!

    By the way, has any of you nice folks an idea if the new documentary "Steve McQueen - The lost movie" is available on dvd in the States? (Because I want to own a movie "for real" and not through some streaming-company)

    Think that's bad, there was an actor named Joseph Perry going way back, and punch on his name and it is a pic of that dude from Aerosmith.

    Do miss the H card days. H card emulation. I thought it was fun figuring out how to keep it running than watching tv.
    ……and no, I’m not OJ.

    The good old days. Which channels do you get? All of them.

    #127 9 months ago

    It was all the local channels from around the country that I enjoyed the most. Something you couldn’t buy on DIRECTV

    #128 9 months ago

    Be nice, say thank you
    Please, once in awhile
    It's a beautiful world we live in
    Give your brother a smile

    #129 9 months ago

    I got rid of DirecTV and now I have more channels than I ever dreamed of.

    And more westerns than I ever heard of.

    It was PPV and porn for me. Staring at EPROM dumps trying to figure out why this one worked, but that one didn't, and really not knowing what the F I was looking at, but figuring it out anyway. Paying some guy $100 to socket my Tivo EPROM so I could install a custom one to remote control my receiver. The good old days...

    Did anyone of you smell something? I thought I got a whiff of Radon.
