I wish I did, I'll just have to be happy appreciating the fine examples you guys are bringing.

You won't be by Ordats booth. He is not participating in the TPF this year from the last report I was told.

He is pretty much done with pinball and his hobby interest has changed to 4 Wheeling.

Just goes to show- all it takes to move 50k units is some pins and balls.... right?

Love the look of that "Play-Boy". Gottlieb's second or third game ever, I believe.

Thanks for all the kind words about my Fleet. It wasn't quite up to the task of all the nudging so it ended up on the table with a bum leg. Good thing is it'll get fixed up and my son will be playing it again shortly. It is 82 years old after all.

I will probably see if I can find slightly larger balls for it so they don't gather in the holes as easily. Being a sample/prototype game it isn't as small as the production Fleet Jrs and I used the Jr size balls in it when I fixed it up. Will have to get a beefier power supply if we do this again next year.

Btw for anyone that played Fleet, my son whoops my butt. His high score is 9300...

Airway was the best. Purely mechanical with automatic scoring. Played like it was brand new for the most part.
