Last week I was going down my line up trying to make a punch list. Ah...Mars God of War, the first pinball machine that I had acquired. A System 80. I made the mistake of saying out loud, “This doesn’t need anything. It’s working 100%.” I proceeded to play. During my second game...poof... the GI lights went out.

I didn’t have the time to get into it that night. So a couple days later I cracked into it and propped up the table. Low and behold ....Blownfuse.

Maybe I should have kept my mouth shut.
Maybe it was Steve’s way of saying get back in there and work on that System 80. Welcome to the Adventure.

It seems that through all my research for pinball knowledge, anything System 80 I came across had a post from Steve. Valuable information that I could apply. Like so many other’s have mentioned, Steve has helped me out countless times.

I have four System 80s and one System 1. All Gottliebs. I know that I could not have put this collection together without the knowledge that you here have provided me... Thank you all... Thank you Steve. You will be missed.

Last night I put up a million+ on the Touchdown for you. This weekend I’m going to work on my brother-in-law’s Caveman for him in your memory.

It sounds like one spirit will be at PAGG this year for sure.
RIP pinball bro. RIP.
