I have a 1955 Williams Can Can which is a rare and amazing game. It is a pinball machine in a gun cabinet and there are dancing can can girls who flip over and show numbers on their rears when you hit bumpers and rollovers. But my game had a terrible backglass with a large amount of ink missing. Because it's so rare, there are are no repro back glasses available.

Michael Schiess of the Pacific Pinball Museum told me to contact Steve Azzam (shazzam@comcast.net) who makes custom repro back glasses (for not much more cost than a traditional repro backglass). Well, he took my scans of my bad backglass plus photos of a good backglass from Randy Peck and created a perfect repro Can Can backglass for my game! I highly recommend Steve for anyone in a similar situation who needs a repro backglass for a rare game. Steve has a process where he prints on glass (including the back light mask). It looks great.

I've attached before and after pictures below.

I'm not associated with Steve, except as a customer. Get in touch with him if you need a repro backglass for you game.

Wow that is a monster of a game. How much does that weigh?

#6 9 months ago

I don't know how much it weighs... but it's a lot!

BTW, another cool feature of the game is that it selects a random skill bonus at the beginning of the game (shown in the yellow/red circles) such as earn a replay for hitting the Eiffel Tower rollover on Ball 1. The skill bonus is selected by a slip clutch like is found on bingo machines, but I never saw one on a regular pinball machine before.

As you can tell from the 3-digit replay counter(!), this is a gambling machine. You can earn 50 free games on a single ball (but it is very hard to do that).

Quoted from DannyM:

This is as far as I got before I lost all concentration. Did something else happen in this thread?

Jesus christ, that is a monster cabinet! Awesome, but I wouldn't ever want to move that beast.

Here are the dancing girls (that I repro'ed myself)...
