born in 86.
I like the comment that says its like old cars that is spot on. I d very much love to have a 64-66 mustang , it doesnt go as fast as the new ones, doesnt have all the tech in it, smells of diesel but still.
you get the point
less complicated does not mean less challenging.
its vintage, art is great, cab is painted, you get a backglass not a translite.
dont get me wrong i like everything in pinball what i mean is if you really like pinball all generations have an interest.
of course if you can only have one pin maybe the newer ones a more suited cause they have more "game"
you like restoring well here you go, plenty of restoring to do on EMs, cheaper ,easier than SS cause no electronics , an EM will always come back to life.
only thing is , dont play on your newer stern and then on the EM, cause you will miss the lightshow and sound, and it will feel slower too.
gotta keep your EMs steep not flat BTW, so its harder and faster.
just get one , restore it and see for yourself. you wont even lose money if in the end you decide you dont like it.
