    I still so wish I could come across this one....

    Here's an old racing theme pinball.
    1946 Bally Midget Racer,
    Slowly but surly getting this one restored....Took me seven months trying to come up with a mint back glass for it but had to end up having a new repro made for it, Thanks to Raphael Lanker & Bruno from "Paris Pinball Museum" and Steve Azzam aka "BGresto Back Glass Restorations" for making it happen. ..and a Pinsider (I cannot remember who) who recommended me getting in touch with Raphael Lanker for the missing images needed for the reproduction BG.

    Gottlieb Mario Andretti. I own one and its actually a fun cheap dmd game.

    #11 3 years ago

    Mario was def one of the better gottlieb/premier games.

    #12 3 years ago

    Never knew about this one until it showed up on an F1 fan page.

    Lap by Lap by Inder. According to the description, it has a plexiglass playfield.

    #13 3 years ago

    Checkpoint and I500 are my favorite racing pins. However, I would love to see a Le Mans or Group B Rally pin in the future.

    #14 3 years ago

    Not yet mentioned is Williams Beat The Clock. A unique racing themed game as it is the only single player EM with muktiball. I just happen to have one coming my way soon.
