Dennis , Nick not sure myself I picked up but never put it together. Gonna do that tonight and have my son Mike go over it. I'll have him take a video and post it for you guys.
Hey there Butch and Bingopodcast,
I just pinged you and have been loving reading through your posts and the posts of so many others. I wanted to post my machine because from the photos I've seen, I'm not sure the cabinet I have is like everyone else's Bally High Flyer. Can you comment on the pics attached. Is this a hybrid machine or something else ? Thanks.
Here is a photo of my High Flyer, produced just a month prior to yours. It has the original cabinet artwork. At some point, they must have switched the cabinet artwork from the original to Wall Street artwork. I can only assume that Bally was getting near to the end of the High Flyer run and decided to use up some already-painted, old stock cabinets for Wall Street, which was produced in 1974.
Thanks for the replies guys. I think I like the Wall Street design better. As Nick just said, it certainly gives the machine a nice story to tell. Probably some combination of truth and tale will make it to the finished product. Thanks again !
Here's some photos of some bingos I picked up in eastern Colorado about a year and a half ago. They'd been sitting in a barn for almost 40 years after having been retired from service when the poker games took off in the mid 70's. I'm finally getting around to restoring some of them, many will be parted out eventually. I'm nearing completion of a Parade, the only one I've ever seen in all the years I've been doing this. Good that's a walk out basement!
The barn find was:
Sun Valley 2
Key West 3
Show Time 4
Beach Time 3
Carnival Queen 1
Miss Am '57 2
Plus some parts and flasher games
I've got a Bikini, a Sea Island, a Gay Time and a Show Time running at the house now. In addition to the games pictured above as sold, I've turned over Roller Derby, Double Up, Bonanza, Shoot A Line, and another Key West.
