Thought I'd set up a couple games each from what I believe is the peak year from each decade for Gottlieb games: 1954, 1965, and 1975. Not all of them have been given the full rebuild/resto treatment (yet), but they are all playable at least. Decided to just take a few shortcuts and put them up to enjoy sooner. (Have a spot for 1977-78 games too, as those are among my favorites.)

I'd probably swap out Abra in lieu of El Dorado, but I don't have El Dorado ready yet (Abra would get its own special place!).

Awesome! Thanks for posting these pictures and the logic behind the pairings. I have been collecting 70s Gottliebs for a while and have not been exposed to many of the earlier models. That Cowpoke looks like fun. I will have to find one to play some day.

Yowza! Looks great df. So Abra gets it's own spot...interesting. I'd have a hard time picking a favorite out of those.

Daisy May and Dragonette look awesome together!

For me 1954 is the greatest year as when I look at the titles that came out that year - amazing.

Love the reflection of the tile floor in the shiny legs of K&Q's & CP! Great choices. If I were there I would hang out with the woodies for awhile

Beautiful machines, Dirt! Makes me happy just seeing that line of beauties! I aspire to someday have a collection that's CLOSE to as nice as that!

'54, '65, and '75 were some of the better years for Gottlieb.

Neat. Thanks for sharing! Wonder where it is now?

That's a nice looking collection.

I always wondered if the 100 points when lit red bumper cap for Cowpoke was original or not. I have one in mine as well.
