Because surely I cannot be the only one here who owns a CC machine, right? Right?!

The CC machine I own is Gin. I bought it back in 1995 at a local arcade for a mere $200. There may not be much to do on the playfield, but it does have an awesome backglass and cab artwork.

I have a 1975 CC "Top Ten" project I need to finish sometime in the future, so no you are not alone.

I own a Chicago Coin Fleetwood big ball bowler. Does that quaify me for the club?

I've also restored a CC Stampede for another collector. Love the backglass artwork! Gameplay is so-so though (IMHO).

Woo hoo! Top Ten does look rather fun with the spinning record in the middle, reminds me of TOTAN.

Absolutely! CC was way more of a "general" arcade amusement company than their competitors, so their bowling, rifle, etc games qualify for membership.

CC did very few machines with Drop targets.

I have not played mine but the Targets reset again after the last one is down so there is non stop action between the Drop Targets and the Big Spinner. Backglass for this title is available at bgresto.com.

I have a 74 CC HI Flyer. My favorite EM. Love the sound of CC score
wheels

#7 4 years ago

There will be 1000's more once cgc makes medieval.

1974 Hi Flyer in the house.

It only works in the summer an fall. Its a fickle beast but quite fun,

I had a foosball table that was coin operated when I was a kid. it had a sheet of glass over it that locked down. a very sturdy table. I believe it was made by Chicago coin club

#10 4 years ago

I have 2 chicago coin Showtimes. 1 running 100% the other needs a few coils and flipper rebuilds. Making
my own new links for the flippers. This is the EM I cut my teeth on. But slowly succeeded to get both running
At first I thought no way and was ready to bail. Now I like fixing EM's more than playing! plus they sure
are a lot cheaper on parts over a S.S.

#11 4 years ago

I've had a few Chicago Coin pins and arcades over the years. Not a pinball but I hope to add one of these to my collection one day.

I have a CC Mini Baseball. Anyone want it? I need to sell it. Works great and has the base too.

#13 4 years ago

We've got a nice working Beatniks up in our collection and a Hee Haw waiting it's turn to shine. The Beatniks is surprisingly popular. We rotate games in and out of our lineup based on popularity and Beatniks has been solid! Must be the artwork, or maybe the ACTION RING!

Does anyone have a PDF or copy of the Hee Haw schematics? I haven't found them yet.

Cheers,
Art.

#14 4 years ago

I have 3. Sound Stage, Cinema and Red Baron.

I've got a 1955 Big League Bullseye Pitch and Bat in the midst of restoration. Hard to find parts for the old CC's but they were built like tanks!

#16 4 years ago

I have 2, both are up and running 100%.

1967 Beatniks
1975 Gold Record

#17 4 years ago

Glad to see some love for CC games. I've had a few and like the graphics and game play, not to impressed with quality.
Currently have a nice working Moon Shot and a Cinema waiting for fixing. Had the Basketball Champ, sadly got destroyed in a fire while I was in the middle of restoring it, a Gin which I had to part out it was so rusted, a nice Hollywood, and a nice Showtime. Always a sucker for getting another.

First pinball I ever got was a CC Hollywood (was even lucky that it came will all OEM documentation; manual, schematic, extra rules and various pricing cards). Also the first one I ever had to repair as the unit was a real basket case when I got it. Refinished the cabinet and rebuilt a lot of the switch assemblies, learned a fair amount in the process. Of course I discovered this place, RPG and pinwiki well afterwards, so it was a long road but got it beat and works perfectly fine. Soon to get the play field swapped to replace the well worn one in the near future (working on fixing the Dodge City and then a Getaway). Then, I will try my had at repainting the original one that is in there.

Any event she is:

1962 Gold Crown big ball bowler.....in the process of being restored.

#21 4 years ago

CC Hollywood. Love it. Sometimes I kick it's ass, sometimes it kick's my ass. Every game is a challange!

I called a guy about one of these last year. Don't know if he sold it or not.

#23 4 years ago

Good to see the army of C.C.M. is alive and getting larger

#24 4 years ago

Be on the lookout for a Hee Haw on a Diesel (jeans) commercial. The one I just picked up was used in the commercial. It came with an extra 1/2" thick sheet of plexi over the playfield to support the dancing girl. I don't think the commercial is out yet.

I posted this elsewhere but, since it's the CCM club...

I've only owned one CCM pinball machine. 1975 Gold Record.
Gave it to my daughter as a Christmas present 2 - 3 years ago.

For a basic good old e-m pinball machine, I like the game play on it pretty much.
It a 4-player. The 2-player version is Top Ten.

CCM pins were some of the 1st pins I ever played as a teenager in Indiana back in the 70's. Good times.

Hmm, interesting. Do you remember what they were asking?

Quoted from AlexF:

He told me they sell for $5k and above but would take less. He turned down my offer of $2k but may have listened to an offer of $3k but I didn't have (still don't) that kind of $$$$$. I wasn't even looking for that game but I gave him an offer since it was local and looked cool.

Do you know the story on the wood used to make the cabinet on this game?

#28 4 years ago

Yeah, the wood is apparently leftover from Howard Hughes Spruce Goose project. I know of a couple around $5-$6k. I'd be interested at $3k. Still a ton of money really but it oozes mechanical charm.

I heard all the available wood in that time frame was used in the war and they used the wood from HH as you said.

#30 4 years ago

I have a 1973 World Series that the previous owner lovingly restored the cabinet on. But rather than paint it, he used oak veneer. I told my wife this qualifies it as furniture so she ought to let me put it in the bar (where other games are banned).

IMG_2542.JPG

I redid all of the labels on the inside of the game because I got tired of not being able to read them:

#31 4 years ago

I have a few, Hi-Score Pool, Kicker, Top Ten, a bowler and a few of their gun games. I like Chicago Coin, but I always rooted for the underdog. Some of the early CDI games were very nice.

#32 4 years ago

Geez - I totally forgot in my earlier post that my 1949 Pin-Bowler pinball machine is a Chicago Coin game too. Cool backglass light animation and artwork by Roy Parker! Mine's in storage awaiting restoration, but here's a link to a video that someone else posted on YouTube:

#33 4 years ago

Very cool Tim.

Wish the video showed more of the Playfield in action.

It will be nice when you finally get around to yours.

Very nice Tim! Pictures when finished please - one of you bowling too - haha.

I have a few Chicago Coin pins in my collection. I have a Top Ten, Hi-Score Pool, and Blondie woodrail. Top Ten is rough but will someday get fixed up. Hi-Score Pool looks good and works well. It was at the 2013 Texas Pinball Festival and will be at the 2014 show as well. Blondie is a really rough project that I do not know if I will ever get to. I saved it from being parted out but it is going to need lots of work to ever play again... I also have a Steam Shovel EM arcade project that I hope to someday get restored and working.

I am looking for a few Chicago Coin EM rifle and arcade games to add to my collection.

Too bad none of you guys picked up this beauty. Oh well, It's mine now.

Just could not resist so I claimed pinball insanity to my wife and won my case! Just one more pin to cart to the Southwest but I will set this one up in the house when it arrives so I can have a pin to play/work on for the Winter.

A 1972 Chicago Coin "Casino"

Now I am a solid member of the Chicago Coin club.

To me, this title and "Stage Coach" are CC grail pins.

#37 4 years ago

Casino is supposed to be a great game. Congratulations.

Going to a good home. You will itching to play that along with the others you have in storage.
We know if your not on Pinside for awhile again its not a computer issue.
Grats.

I like calling it the poor mans "Fireball". No Multiball which is too bad but it has 2 spinning discs instead on one. Also who needs Zipper Flippers when you have a shot at closing all the Drain Lanes to save your ball.

Thanks pin-it.

Yes I will take good care of it and get that 8+ overall condition to a 9+ very shortly with some extra parts I have for it.

See the reviews on IPDB rate it very well, a little Playboy Magazine cover too! Nice features.

Well Herb Silvers owns one and lists it as his favorite game on his website. Considering how many classics have passed through his shop over the years I'd say that's a pretty good commentary.

I also have a CC "Casino", when I first got it I was the only one on Pinside at the time that had one in their collection, since there was little about it on here at the time I filled in the information and provided all of the current site images of the table, I wish my playfield were in better condition and the back glass wasn't so flaky on the band's faces, its an addicting game and seems to be rare, at least it plays as it should, save for a more recent problem.

Sadly, I "may" be leaving the CC Club, its one of my least played tables and may go up for sale for that reason, that and I'm hustling funds for a MMR.

That would be sad to see you leave the CC Club as Casino is a hard to find title. Just got mine and here are some pics of it at the house. Most likely it will not be ready to play until after New Years. When I am done with it the Playfield should be a 8.5, Backglass 9.5, Cabinet 8.0.

Nice machine Ken, just WOW! Wish mine looked that good, I'll bet you're really proud of that beautiful find! Please let us know how she plays when she is ready

I was also wondering, if its not too much trouble that is, if you could scan the "ball in play" card for me, I know its a lot to just request but I cannot find it anywhere and I need one for mine can't hurt to ask either way
