Quoted from Mopar:

Mine is nice, but missing paint on some of the cab. Yours looks really
nice all around!
I do have another that needs much work, but certainly doable, so that's
3 of them amoung only 2, so looks like the 100 plus may be accurate.

My friend near Ottawa has a Star-Jet, so that is 4. And I remember one being in the marketplace a month or three ago, so that's 5, unless the ad belonged to one of you two.

Grossology is an exhibit that tours, and in 2016 the machines were still part of it: https://www.sfsciencecenter.org/grossology (at least based on the web site photo, but that appears to be a presser stock photo)
It was def around in 2015 as per this image https://twitter.com/SeattleMonorail/status/620264612710121472

Right now the exhibit is at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History https://www.fwmuseum.org/exhibit/grossology/

I found a local news report on it and at least from their footage, the games are gone. They have seemingly been replaced with two upright arcade cabinets, which you can see at the end.

So.... did they destroy the games? Are they just out for service? I sent an email to the production company to check.

Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:

Bless you, doing the lords work!

I heard back from the production company (Advanced Animations) and they said Grossology exhibit has a smaller and a larger touring configurations, and that only the larger setup contains the Gas Attack pinball machines, which are confirmed to still exist.

Quoted from way2wyrd:

Here is the final restore of Rockola - Army Navy This one makes 23 known machines.

I have no idea how a company can make like 70,000 of one machine and then just a few months later just produce like a handful of one that's just as cool.

Quoted from desiArnez:

Who has a rare barometer for this one. I was particularly traumatized by this movie as a child.[quoted image][quoted image]

wait where did you find this? I've never heard of this, I'm assuming a custom retheme? What's it based on?

it's flipperless gambling machine (a solid state take on a 1940s one ball,) but a previously unknown machine just surfaced: https://pindude152.blogspot.com/2020/09/first-race-solid-state-one-ball-horse.html
Still super cool.
