    Gottlieb WipeOut - bought from Jersey Jack mailorder about 20 years ago. Swedish coin door. $65 to ship via common carrier.

    It's been moved to five different homes in its life. I got it basically for the theme as it was intended for a ski place we had.

    Quoted from The_Director:

    Just for fun, what's the longest man standing in your gamerooms and how long have you had it? For me, Bally Doctor Who. Has stood the test of time to stay planted on the gameroom floor for 8 years now. Has seen many, many other games come and go.

    Bally KISS 1979 ~ In gameroom since mid'90s.

    My personally restored White Water...not sure I will ever part with it.

    #209 51 days ago

    Funhouse has been here since my wife bought it for me for Xmas 2008. Got me back into the hobby.

    Her untimely death in 2010 cemented it to the floor.

    Thanks Karen, I sure miss you, honey!

    Getaway purchased in 1994 from an arcade floor in CT. Completed a full restoration on it this month!

    First game was a Gottlieb Genie which I bought from an operator in 1985 for my dorm room in college. Moved that Genie at least 7 times between the dorm, parent's house and various apartments and could not bear to move it a 8th time so I sold it. Should have kept that one, still tempted every time I see one for sale

    #216 51 days ago

    Twilight Zone. Bought it from the original owner in 1997. Had CH clear the playfields long before the HEP days. Plays like brand new.

    #217 51 days ago

    I have had my Black Knight (this one - I have had 4 of them) since 1994.

    I also some games in the basement that belong to another collector friend. His TOTAN has been in my basement for 9 years now. I think I can claim it as mine now, no? LOL

    I picked up a Flash Gordon In 2005 For $400 and it still sits in my game room today. I did sell it to a friend at one point but reacquired it a year later. I also operated it for a half year at one point. The next oldest is a TZ that I picked up in 2010.
