I just sold my High Speed AND my Getaway at the APE show in Fort Lauderdale a couple of weeks ago.
I got the High Speed in 1992 and the Getaway in 2006. Both awesome machines - I had a lot of fun working on them and playing them over the years.
High Speed in particular was very near and dear to my heart. I learned a great deal from troubleshooting and fixing that machine. The background music is so 80's but it really sticks in your head...
I've owned and sold many machines in that time but I always kept High Speed. The only machine that I've had longer and still have is Space Shuttle (bought in 1986). I always have machines loaned out to friends and try to rotate them every so often. Keeping them running is relatively easy and it is cheap storage in my book. Plus, they get played.
I sold High Speed to a local guy I met at the show - his first machine. He was very excited to get it home and setup to play. I spent a great deal of time explaining how it works and showing him how to set it up and work on it - just as some great folks did for me back in the day.
The Getaway went to a friend of a friend who was super excited to take it home as well.
So I guess it is too late to join this club - at least for now...
