    I see in the forum, that Honda fit works for pinball transport, but has anyone ever tried a Chevy Sonic Hatchback?

    I have one and have been wondering this as well

    Can you measure the opening of the tailgate? Forum says you need 24" width and 30.5" height (from top of opening straight down). I am thinking about this vehicle and want to know if it will handle a pinball.

    I took some measurements and it seems like a game will fit. The only thing I am concerned about is length. I measured my T2 at close to 52" and the amount I have in the Sonic is pretty darn close to that. I am picking up The Machine tomorrow. If I attempt to use the Sonic, I will post some pics. I will probably bitch out though and borrow a pickup.

    I wimped out and borrowed a pickup. Sorry if anyone was eagerly awaiting the results.

    does it fit in a ford escort?

    what if we remove the clowns first?

    Quoted from retired_user_101:

    If you remove them, please save them for reuse. Reportedly there is a serious shortage of clowns.

    For the record, I discovered today that an old EM pin DOES, in fact, fit in a Chevy Sonic hatchback. (In this case, a 1974 Gottlieb Big Brave.) Pics below.

    Can't say definitively if a modern SS machine would fit though, too close to call. But at least we now know that old school pins WILL fit.

    Did anyone ever confirm if a "modern" pin, with the headed folded down fits? Also, anyone with a Chevy Spark try, yet?
