I am new to the hobby.
This is my first game , I am picking it up this coming Saturday.
The name of the game is Gottlieb's "Bank Shot".
Can I transport this game in my car?

I would appreciate assistance, or links about different vehicles if I need to find other way.

Well you're new to this, so... this question is kind of a constant one that gets asked. Will x pin fit into y car. They usually end up a bit absurd. But really, not that many people can answer it for a specific car.

Pins are big and unwieldy. But I watched a guy back a Honda Fit up to my garage and proceeded to load a Judge Dredd into it. I was shocked it fit (JD is a wide body superpin game). But there are even variations in the years (old Escape great, new one not as big an opening). So really it comes down to careful measuring and seeing what can fit. If you have a friend with a game maybe even try a test load under no pressure before trying the first time Doug it for real. And if all else fails, truck rental or a friend.

Thanks for your advice , I contacted the owner and he is giving me the dimensions to see if it will fit in my car.

Search through this thread and someone may have already declared it a fit or no fit.

I do not see how it could be possible to transport a pin in a Honda Civic. You'd need a trailer. Odyssey yes. Civic no.

If the Civic is a hatchback maaaaybeeee you'll be able to fit it. But honestly you're inevitably going to do damage to your car's paint or trim doing it that way. You're probably better off renting a U-Haul van if it's not too far from your house. Or borrowing a friend's truck or SUV and repaying them in beer!

I can transport a game in my 2007 Prius. Body in the back with seats folded down, head in the front seat. Not ideal, but it does the job in a pinch.

I got a 6mdm into a prius. If your civic is a hatchback I'd say its certainly possible.

That is a nice looking game, no matter how you get it home!
