Quoted from mac2444:

...just make sure the ball locks work in the MA, those were a bitch to source

swinks this would be a good one for you. A project similar to the Banzai Run lifter.

#153 5 months ago

My limit is 2 hours drive! More power to you.

#154 5 months ago

My longest one day drive was 1450 miles round trip to get a TAF from kcz . I don’t know why it was so important to get a game they made 20,000 copies of. My longest drive is 3010 miles round-trip for Lexi Lightspeed, but that was split over three L-O-N-G days.
Hit the road and get your Mousin’ Around!

Quoted from ruralcollector:

I will be leaving at 10:00 p.m. (yes, pm) Thursday, February 6, to Springfield, MO.

Quoted from ruralcollector:

Which means I have NO choice but to drive the 22 hours

Dude...Where’s the shooter lane pics?

Quoted from ruralcollector:

The year is 2020. Perfect vision. A fresh start. My wife says it’s time we make a baby, which means my time and money that goes towards pinball is coming to a screaming (pun) halt.

I think the answer speaks for itself. Take the wife with you. Take a few rest or motel stops, make her a baby on the way. Win-Win

Looks like the ball-eater assembly that Wico made that was used by Data East and Williams/Bally. I just so happen to have one of these unobtainium assemblies! shameless plug if someone needs it. It was the same for all companies since Wico just made one mech and they all used it.

#162 5 months ago

if the ball eater cup (515-5076-00 part) is needed I can re-engineer it as I have a NOS full assembly but currently not a priority as not many people purchased the ball eater bracket

#163 5 months ago

If you are going to make the trip, I'd pack another game to two along the way. Find other games that are for sale, if you have the room.

That's a long way and a lot of time for one system 11.

#164 5 months ago

12 hours until my 22 hour trip I had a dream about a Mousin’ Around pinball last night, but it looked all goofy and surreal like a Salvador Dali painting.. not sure what that means lol Lots of updates to come!

#165 5 months ago

Good luck!

#166 5 months ago

Good luck on your quest! I love these types of adventures.

We bought a little sports car for my wife 2k miles away, we both flew in one way, drove it home over three days and took pictures along the way. I will remember it forever.

Don’t forget to tell em “Large Marge sent ya.”

And I’m off! And on schedule It’s snowing right now in MN. The pups wished me farewell and my wife is still not super happy about my adventures and didn’t want to be photographed. Thanks for following along! 11 hours to go!

If you leave the dogs behind, who will pull the sleigh?

Safe Driving, bro. Looking forward to following along.

So does the guy on the far right on the billboard have his official pinball hat on there? Baby makin' hat?

#183 5 months ago

Safe travels man. Good luck! Love me some Mousin Around. Underrated pin IMO.

Looks like attire for an ancient Norsk Viking mating ritual. That guy looks like he needs all the help he can get

#185 5 months ago

Safe travels, still enjoying that Hardbody.

#186 5 months ago

Well, looky here! Thank you Iowa for welcoming me so kindly look forward to the fields of opportunity I will have whilst driving through your state!

First official gas fill up of the trip in Clear Lake, Iowa. I had the opportunity to choose between Casey’s, Pilot, or Kum and Go for fuel. We don’t have many K&Gs in our area and the name also sounds more fun than the others. I believe I chose wisely. 7 hours to go!

If you sign up for a free account, you can typically get three cents off a gallon at Pilot. Casey's is where we go for pizza. That said, us Iowans love to Kum & Go. My brother and I made up a few other less family friendly names to make fun of that one over the years.

I think I went to a Kum & go in Nevada years ago.... no, wait, that was the Mustang ranch.

#194 5 months ago

I miss my Mousin Around... wouldn’t drive more than 3 hours to get one though.

#195 5 months ago

Rise and shine, everyone!! Nice to see the sun again Thanks again to everyone for the support and positive comments! I’m on my last leg of the first half of the journey. Maybe 2 hours away and starting to get J A C K E D! First time I’ve stepped foot in MO. Doesn’t look or feel much different than home. Do people in MO have accents?

#196 5 months ago

Good luck with the rest of the return trip! You'll be glad you did it when all is said and done. That is a LOT of driving though!

My longest trips were:

7 hours for a Black Knight ($850)
7 hours for a Taxi (for $700)
6 hours for a pinbot ($850) - Cleveland go Pittsburgh during a blizzard because I was impatient

All the machines were fixer-uppers in working condition but the deals seemed too good at the time to pass up. No regrets!

#197 5 months ago

get da cheese! enjoy your new game
