I do believe Steve Austin plays a game of Sky Jump with Cathy Rigby in season 3-19. He loses. A fun fact for you to tell people when you finish the game. I will leave it up to the young bucks to try and figure out who these people are. Lol
Picked up this Aztec last weekend. Doing full restoration. My first perfect 10 back glass. The playfield is in great shape also. No sunken inserts and no wear around inserts. Pretty amazing considering the 60K plays on the counter. Should be ready in 40 days.
My current line up. Just finished the Aztec restro. A few issues, but looks great. I have a Gulstream waiting in the wings for a restro.
MikeO, what games are those, left to right? That third one from the left looks interesting with the 7 drop.lanes.
Thank you so much Nick, the timing of your post could not arrived at a more perfect time for me.
Hey EMsinKC, can you please post more pic's of that Riverboat? How would you rate Riverboat's gameplay?
I picked up this gem this past weekend. Was on my wish list, just thought I would never find one. Works 100%, just needs a full restoration.
Quoted from o-din:
Fun Park eh? Probably the best 60s spinner game I've ever played. Maybe the best spinner game period.
Your garage appears to be the never ending black hole of pin collections. Every time someone mentions a game, there you are posting a pic of one in your collection. Just how big are those garages in California anyway? You shame us Midwesterner's with our big basements. Lol.
Quoted from NoQuarters:
Just picked up a Space Mission. Needs a little clean up and rubber,etc and should be good to go.
Congrats and good price for that machine. I was bidding on the Triple Strike from same seller for my brother in law. It went for $100 more. PM me if you are really thinking about letting a game go. You have one that I may be interested in.

Some pics of my recent 64 Williams San Francisco restore. Did this one for a friend who inherited it when his father passed in April. He wanted it restored in memory of his dad.
Had lots of rust and everything was seized from old grease. Special thanks to member cpiel for the free coin door surround!
Great Job! Did you repaint those flippers? If so, what paint did you use, and how did you do the letters?
Glenn, you had me very tempted at MGC with that El Toro. It played very well and the Ice Show was also very snappy. I would have guessed you spent more time getting them ready. Great Job! Thanks for bringing the El Toro. I probably put the most games on it.
Quoted from Rat_Tomago:
That's an interesting method of a backglass. I am curious to know if my Cosmos will have either this film method or a BGresto glass. I do know that my glass is not original. I guess I will find out sometime this week. STI update shows the pin being here by the 12th. It all depend on customs at the border right now. It should be clearing customs soon and on the way to Texas.
BG restro actually had a Cosmo glass ready to go at the Ann Arbor show this weekend. He had three bins of glass for sale. Some with minor imperfections, so he had them discounted. You should contact him.
Quoted from oldcarz:
She does look like Barbara Eden! Vic, we are showing our age.....
My old boss bought her house from her back in 1989. I was working for him at that time. It was kind of a trip walking around that house thinking Barbra Eden walk these halls. She sold the house because the town would not let her put in a heliport in the backyard. I still drive pass there about once a week.
Finally got a chance to get some stencils painted this past weekend. Anyone want to guess the final project?
That has got to be the best backglass I have ever seen on a Argosy. Usually, all of the red is peeling and gone. That playfield looks very nice also. Congrats!
Quoted from Dono:
Touch ups, check. Clear coat, check. Cabinet repaint, check. Mechanicals - check. Currently troubleshooting, this Gulfstream is just about ready for the York show - one of the fastest EMs ever built - simple but deadly, just the way I like 'em!
Looking forward to yet another wonderful show, see everyone in less than a week!!!
Great Job. My Gulfstream restoration was a nightmare. I put about 150 hours into mine and yours looks pretty damn good. Can we see more pic's of the PF? First machine I bought without playing it first. I had an opportunity to pick up a project machine at a good price and a few pinsiders told me grab it, I will not regret it. I love this machine. Addictive play and truly one of my favorites.
Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:
The only time I personally own duplicate games are for restorations.
However, It is easier to do duplicate restorations while they are side by side, not just sitting on storage for decades. Bulk deals do happen for identical titles. I just did one for 2x Gators and 1x Alligator, among other games. In some rare cases I buy for "Frankenstein" builds as not all games can always be saved the due to severe damage or missing parts.
I could not agree more! I have two Target Alpha's next in my restoration que. The seller had two machines in storage for a couple of years and most likely never plugged them in since they were bought for another purpose. I had my pick, and just my luck, I would have picked the most troubled one. So I took both. Hopefully can make one, or maybe two great machines when I'm done.
Just added this one to my collection for the Holidays. A fun and different type of player.
My original first thoughts after I played Little Chief were blah, but I hold to blame that I did not read the rule set and understand the gameplay. After I learned it I really started to enjoy it. Collect bonus in game play. Thumbs up.
Here is a PAPA 2017 championship video were Jim B. makes an interesting decision to choose Little Chief over Iron Man and Ripleys for the final game against Zach Sharpe for the championship. Go to 3:47:00 to see the final matchup.
Quoted from Nihonmasa:
Pbr even ships here
For the first order they will send an invoice and request you to pay via transferwise and send the order afterwards.
For the next ones they'll ship the stuff along with the invoice and you pay when you receive it.
Hold on here. Are you telling me there are 20 pinball machines on Saint Martin Island? I’m there about 2-3 weeks a year. How have they survived the hurricanes?
