Cool thread, some great stories so far. My parents bought an EM in the late 70s when was 10 or so. My brother and I loved it but it was broken all the time and my father got fed up with having to call the repair man. Fast forward to 2019 and I pickup a Jukebox and by December of 2019 I began to entertain the idea of purchasing a pinball machine for the house. Wish I would have decided quicker as the prices today are crazy. I did eventually pull the trigger in Sept of this year, Stern premium Led Zep and I am definitely hooked. Would love to bring home a few more games but the cost is making me question my new addiction.
