I used to play Mata Hari at the bowling alley that my friend and I would hang out at while his dad bowled on Friday nights. Took me several years after starting my pin collection to find a good one at a decent price here in S. Ca. Got it off of Ebay, won the auction easily as nobody else had bid. I guess the "local pickup only" out in the Coachella Valley kept people from bidding. Back glass a solid 9, playfield 8. Didn't have to do much to it as the boards were all good, brand new Alltec mpu had been installed. Seller gave me 3 other backglasses, an extra Mata Hari, a Harlem Globetrotters with alot of bubbling paint and a beautiful Strikes and Spares. The only thing the Mata Hari required was a good cleaning, new rubbers, some bulb replacements and some minor adjustments. 5 years later, it still plays great.
My pin collection is centered around Bally games from the 70's - Capt. Fantastic, EM Night Rider, Evel Knievel, Eight Ball, Harlem Globetrotters, Dolly Parton and of course, Mata Hari. I'm out of room but I am still searching for a Strikes and Spares cabinet and playfield to go with the backglass I have.
Already missed the Arcade Expo at the Banning pinball museum in March and now California Extreme this weekend due to covid. I hope, as I'm sure the rest of you do, that this thing goes away soon so we can get back to our events, tournaments and weekend fun. Playing our own machines helps but not being able to have friends and family over to play sucks.
Stay safe and hang in there everyone....we'll get through it somehow.
