Quoted from illawarra92:

..an australian themed pinball..and one that never, ever turns up for sale down hers.

Even then this could of been politically incorrect, now it is called something entirely different.

Jack Daniels and sleeping underneath a pinball machine. I think I can manage.

Gotcha covered rat.

Was only thinking of Big Daddy and your 1000 point challenge.

I have a Cover Girl passing through......... this is another of those ' see if you can get a 1000 points ' games. Easy to collect specials by collecting 6 girls but getting over 1000 is super hard. Never played a wedgehead that was so hard to score over 1000.

#5506 3 years ago

Try to win a special or super special on some of these 40s games.

You gotta win the Big Daddy challenge before being allowed to sleep under it.

I guess if you can't, you can sleep on top of it.

Those power cords by the guest bed look like a hazard to a good nights rest.

Only if they chew on them while they sleep.

Doesn't turn up around here much either. I don't know if I've ever seen one for real.

Here's my recently purchased Abra Ca Dabra with my Top Card that I just finished a playfield swap on. I'll get more pictures of both later. The ACD is original, I have to fix the missing chunk of veneer but other than that it's really, really nice. Even the original drop targets are still in fine shape with just a touch of wear.

The TC playfield is an HSA restoration that really came out nice. Game plays fast and smooth with that playfield in it. acd_and_tc_(resized).jpg

#5513 3 years ago

Here's a few more. I've removed the incorrect post below the flippers that someone installed. Have to fix that also. I don't know what that white blob is on the playfield picture, it's not on the playfield. I must have put something on the glass when I took that picture.

There were flashers behind the eyes. I thought it might make for a cool effect to have red bulbs there. I've got red 44s that I used and it looks really great. acdplayfield_(resized).jpgacdoverall_(resized).jpgacdhead_(resized).jpg

#5514 3 years ago
Quoted from EMsInKC:

Flashers are correct. They only come on after game over though. Red 44s are neat too.

#5515 3 years ago
Quoted from DirtFlipper:

Flashers are correct. They only come on after game over though. Red 44s are neat too.

Yeah, I knew the flashers were correct, but I just thought I'd try it and see how it looks. Easy enough to change back. But I really liked them. I could put flashing red LEDs in there but I really don't want to do that.

#5516 3 years ago

I see someone added a post between the flippers. it can be removed and repaired so you can hardly notice were the hole was.

#5517 3 years ago
Quoted from boilerman:

I've already removed it, but haven't done the repair yet.

other than the post, it looks like are nice example. it's a great game that flew under the radar for many years. it wasn't on many peoples want list

#5519 3 years ago

Loving my ACD, thanks to a cab repaint and some restoration work by Mr Boilerman.

Skyrocket is my first EM. Had it a few months now and thought it's time I put up a few pics. Really good game and it adds some color to the room. Cheers Paul

Was between this and another but my Wife liked the look of this one so - no contest really.

This is a game I would definitely buy someday if I got the chance. Love the artwork.

Top Score

#5528 3 years ago

I agree. This is a much better looking game.

#5529 3 years ago

top score is not a bad game but you picked the better one for sure

#5530 3 years ago

Here is the Jet Spin I had in my collection but sold 10 years ago to a friend 2 miles from my house. I might have a chance to buy it back. The condition is off the charts. It might be time to sell my pool table to make some space.

If you want to sell that Lady Luck, I'm game!

#5533 3 years ago

Lady Luck isn't going anywhere. It's to good a player.

Garage_Lady_Luck_full_view_____P8280014_(resized).JPG

#5534 3 years ago

I can tell it is. Reminds me of Pit Stop. One'll turn up around here someday. But it never hurts to ask!

#5535 3 years ago

Williams Lady Luck pinball machine plays just like the card game Black Jack is played remember this. The double digit score reels are the players Black Jack points in his hand just like if he was playing a Black Jack card game in a casino. The dealers hand card points comes up on backglass after each ball is played in the lower right corner,usally the dealer has 17,18 19 20,or the dealer can "bust" giving the player a free ball even if the player has also busted beyond the 21 point limit. If a player goes above 21 points in his double digit score reels during the ball being played the right side lane gate opens.

If the ball goes through the right side open gate during that time it allows the player to shoot the ball over again. When the player does shoot the ball back up into the top arch there is a switch that resets the the double digit score reels back to zero giving a player a chance once again to get 21 or beat the dealers hand at the end of the ball played. If the player makes 21 on his double score reels during any of his 5 balls he must at that present time let the ball drain down without hitting or letting the 21 card value change. Once this is done the player is awarded a free game, plus a extra ball to be played over for letting the ball drain.

If the player has a better Black Jack hand at the end of each ball the player is awarded a extra ball. Lets say the 1st player double digit score reel card points are 20 when the ball drains, at that moment the dealers card point value will appear in the lower right section of the backglass, if the dealers card points are 19 the player wins the hand with 20 and is awarded a extra ball.If you want to beat this game by high score which isn't easy to do,you must get the ball in both side kick out holes which in turn will light the center 100 point pop bumper. The 100 point pop bumper resets after every ball,so you must continously hit the 100 point pop bumper to increase your score value when you have the 100 point pop bumper lit. Again the game plays just like the card game....Black Jack does.

#5536 3 years ago

That's pretty neat. I've got to find one of those! Sounds a little deeper than Pit Stop which is one of our favorite multiplayer games. Both designed by Norm Clark. He was pretty good at making multiplayers interesting.

#5537 3 years ago

Here's another great Williams single player 1960's game that's another great player. A close friend in NJ and I picked this Lucky Strike up a few months and he already restored the game with over a 100 hours of labor. He had a party to weekends ago and i couldn't stop playing it. It has low plays and has been in a home here in NJ since early 1970's.

#5538 3 years ago

Yeah , that's a neat one too! I'm just glad I have enough space of my own to keep a nice variety. It does kinda hurt when something else comes up and you realize to get it something has to go.

#5539 3 years ago

Check out the LL playfield and backglass.

Not many left in that condition I'm sure. Another Norm Clark that is a great multiplayer is Jolly Roger. Mine is player condition at best, but does it play! The left shot back to the top is one of the hardest I've got. Some games it doesn't happen, but when it does you get rewarded.

#5541 3 years ago

This early Williams reverse wedgehead is another top of the line single player for playability. Tough game to beat but very rewarding when you reset the racks more then 4 times in a game.

The game looks like another great player from Williams in this era. Loved to play it someday.

I had a shot at one of these a year or two ago. Would have been a total restoration, but it would have been a nice game. By the time I finally made up my mind I'd missed it.

I've got a River Boat. Great original condition. Those reverse wedgeheads were some great players, and tough to beat. I've got three 60s Williams games and I think they're all really good players.

Almost the same layout as the Lucky Strike (or other way around!) Both are fun, would love to own them. There was a Skill Pool locally for reasonable money for sale last summer, but I had to pass as the back glass nor cab was in collector condition.

#5545 3 years ago

That Skill Pool looks neat too. I may have come across one when I was a kid. None of these are very common around here, but a friend is bringing in a Williams King Pin in a couple weeks so I get to check that one out. It also sounds like there may be hope for that Speed Way playfield after all. I'll know more tomorrow.

#5546 3 years ago

Yeah...River Boat!

I know a collector here in NJ that found a River Boat in a dumpster that was in real nice condition. How lucky was that.

#5547 3 years ago

I've got a River Boat! Hard to lite all the cards on that one. I'm not sure anybody here has yet. In fact I am sure. But we keep trying!

If that collector's name was Al... than that is the same River Boat I have in my collection.

Seems likely, as I can't imagine this happens too often.

At least not the same title anyway.

Yes...Al Perez
I used to work with him at ADP in Roseland NJ 20+ years ago. I got him started collecting pins back then. He has a nice Pit Stop too.
