Connect your phone to your computer.
Copy the files over to your computer hard drive.
Use "Windows Photo Viewer" to flip them the right way.
Post them again.

Then there are the EMs that just show up at your house unexpectedly. If I remember correctly back to 1974 (I was 12), this game was pretty fun. It might be a while before it get's played again. But I'm up to the challenge.

Quoted from fflint_18:

Here is my Flip Flop. Pretty nice specimen.
Then my favorite "Fli A Card". Cabinets not great, but it plays like a dream.
And my latest project "Space Mission". Cabinet and glass is a mess, but I have everything working.
Sold my Full House to make room and get funds. Went to a friend so I will still visit. And probably fix it.

I love Flip a Card. Really cool layout.

I grew up in Philly across the Tacony Palmyra bridge. Used to go to the Pennsauken mart all the time. Underage buying beer at Roger Wilco. Used to visit family friends in Marlton all the time.

The 1967 Gottlieb Melody is one of my favorite EMs of all time.

Here are some photos of my personal machine.

The pinball machine with the most sentimental value to me is my 1972 Fireball Sample #15.

Here are some photos of the game.

Does anyone know why some of the pictures are coming up big and blurry.

Quoted from Stevens:

Homer

OK, I just have to ask - what all is being done on the playfields you do? (cosmetically, that is). And cleared?

Looks really interesting.

It's great to see these older EM's getting some love. If I had more space, I'd be looking for one to add to my collection.

I can't forget my beloved Gottlieb Target pool.
This is a photo of me (right) back around 1974 with my best friend Doug. The machine was only about 5 years old. Oh man how I'd still love to have that particular machine. It's the only photo I have of it.

Hey Dan,

Really funny you should mention that.

I grew up in upstate PA and used to cruise to Jersey to pick up beers.

Crazy things we did in our youth.

Who did you hang out with in Marltom?

It's a real homer town. If they had kids our age they are probably still here. I probably know some of them.

If you ever come this way stop by to play Flip Flop.

#127 6 years ago

Some of mine

#128 6 years ago

1972 Fireball and Fast Draw. Two of the best.

SteveFury,

I just picked this up about 3 months ago. Believe it or not the guy had it on Knoxville, Tennessee Craigslist for over a week and nobody would give him $500. I offered him $300 because I was a state and a half away and he accepted - it was worth the trip! I played this as a kid at the bowling alley and got re-aquainted at EXPO 2010 in Chicago. 9,580 plays on the meter - look at how shiny the lock-down bar acceptor is.

If you're ever in Illinois Steve stop on in and play it or go to a local show and hopefully they'll have one.

Here are 3 of mine that are in rehab. I really am getting into the 70's Bally's but these Sonic's look neat.

I'd love to get a C37 like so many of you guys or a 2001.

My wife is from Scranton, and they would run up to Binghamton.

I really didn't hang out in Marlton. My parents had life-long friends the Formatos. they did have kids the age of me and my sister. Their son's name was John, and he probably is 58 or so now.

I get up to philly very often, so I will probably take you up on the offer. Thanks.
