    Do you know how many girl pinball collectors there are on this site??

    #2 9 years ago

    Well, I'm female. Don't know if I fall under "girl" at 30, though...

    Quoted from CadillacMusic:

    Well, for me and many on here, you still fall in the "young gal" category, anyway!

    #4 9 years ago

    Whoa! That is a lot of machines Cadillac. You don't happen to throw pinball parties for fellow Clevelanders do you?

    #5 9 years ago

    We get a few, the numbers build for a bit
    then some guys start posting stuff that scares them away

    #6 9 years ago

    Ha, I hang out on somethingawful. Not gonna scare me away very easily. And they're not my machines, as much as the machines of the man I work for. They're mine to care for, in any case. That's maybe a third of them I bothered to list. We got a bunch of old EM's too. Uh, we don't hold parties, but you can come to our showroom and play a few games if you act interested in buying one. Come check out our prototype CV and SS, they're mucho cool.

    #7 9 years ago

    Oh what kind of EMs do you have?
    1960s, 70s ?

    #8 9 years ago

    Uh, yes. Let's see. I went to the second warehouse before to look what was worth refurbing. Sadly, none of it hit over $1000, which is kind of the line for us. But we have in storage:

    A whole room of bingos
    Future Spa
    Tri-Zone
    Meteor
    Supersonic
    Strikes and Spares
    Mystic
    Playboy
    Stars
    Champ
    Eightball
    Wizard
    Winner
    Spae Mission
    Globetrotters
    Olympic Hockey
    Blue Max
    Scorpion
    Space Invaders
    Flight 2k
    Dealers Choice
    Hit+Run
    Nightrider
    Hayburners
    Faces
    Circus
    And many more that didn't have headglasses or a name written on them. I kind of think of our current machines like a stable of horses. They're not mine, but I take care of them, so I have a bit of a bond with them. Is that silly?

    #9 9 years ago

    Thanks for posting your inventory CM. I know of about 10 +/- active members on here who are of the female persuasion. Some are couples who share a nym.

    I bet we have some folks who would be interested in purchasing machines you listed.

    No not silly at all.

    #11 9 years ago

    no it's not silly
    the longer I have an old pin the more I find it's personality - you know what falls out of adjustment
    the double pop of a re set bank Z or AX relays that bully the scores around .......
    makes it hard to part with them eh?

    #12 9 years ago

    Cadillac, I sent you a message about the selection and prices. I'm in the area and interested in an EM if the price is right and it isn't too heavy... ha.

    #13 9 years ago

    Sorry Ms Music...but 30 is young to me.

    #14 9 years ago
    Quoted from spfxted:

    young to me too!

    #15 9 years ago

    You guys are very sweet. I can't help but feel old when I realize I own DVDs that are older than my nephew....and music that was playing on the radio when I was a kid is now on the "oldies" station.

    I bet you don't have any 8-track tapes.LOL

    #17 9 years ago

    Good to see a female talk pins , gives us hope

    #18 9 years ago

    Find a boardgame group if you want to meet girls. Once you get to know them they will give pinball a try.

    Also, I've met quite a few girls in bars. I earn some free credits and then ask if they want to play. If I see the ball going for the outlane while they're playing, I step in and death save it. Man oh man, that gets the digits every time.

    #19 9 years ago

    Oh oh oh no jonnyo! Methinks you are fanning the flames. And how are you deathsaving on the outlane? More of a SDTM technique... I am a future collector- don't own anything yet, but that should be changing soon. For now, my main squeeze provides 4 for me to play, break, fix and clean. And I have an embarrasment of wealth with friends nearby collections. I just bat my eyes or bring over a case of beer if I want to play at one of their homes.

    Well played MSH!

    #23 9 years ago

    Hey Caddie...what's your favorite SS and EM game?

    #24 9 years ago

    I'm hoping we mean women playing pinball. Watch out for MSH, I don't think you guys can hang here. BTW,

    Happy Mothers Day to all the girls/women of Pinside!

    #27 5 months ago
    Quoted from RWH:

    Happy Mothers Day to all the girls of Pinside!

    Just because you are female, doesn’t mean you’ve born a child. Then again, if you’re nerdy enough to enjoy pinball then maybe your machines are your babies (better than a bunch of cats).

    Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:Just because you are female, doesn’t mean you’ve born a child.

    That's why it said "mothers" day.

    #29 5 months ago

    Jennifer laughs...May as well have some pins I guess, My friends and family pretty much wrote me off when I started burning chrome in cyanide, can't really blame them I suppose in hindsight, but just for the record this Princess no longer does her own plating, and is actively looking for a cat.
