I've always had a simmering love affair with EMs, but two things happened recently that brought it to a boil. First, I had a great game on Abra Ca Dabra at the Pinvasion tournament at SFGE. I think my score was in the top 10 for the weekend. Needless to say, it was better than making out in the back seat in 1978 with a bottle of wine. THEN, THEN, I bought a beautiful Jumping Jack at SFGE (pics to follow, I can't stop playing). Once I installed the new Shay repro backglass, something magic happened - the game came alive for me. I had two great games in a row (the last one was 75,600).
Now I'm looking all over for more 70's Gottliebs. I love Gottliebs more than zombies love brains. Can't wait to finish restoring my C37 and Buccaneer.
