Quoted from too-many-pins:
Anyway - I though this post might put a smile on a few faces this morning after looking at all the "pertty stuff" other people posted!
Was that game used for a floating dock support?
Quoted from Pecos:
And this my second bowling theme pinball in just a few short months - Williams 1970 Strike Zone:
A friend had a Strike Zone. It was very frustrating to play. Lighting all of the roll overs and getting the Strikes, and lets not forget that tricky Up Post. The down post button is just above the post. The back glass action is kind of neat. I've only seen 6 threads on Pinside regarding Strike Zone.
Quoted from gdonovan:
Shelby Rampage actually.
Derailing the topic here, Sorry
Years ago, at a Ford Shelby show in Vancouver. A guy tried to enter his Shelby Daytona, (The Daytona was 10 years old at the time and it looked great). The show directors sent him to the spectators parking area, as it was a Ford powered show only.
"Now back to our regular programming!"
This was yesterday (Sunday), road trip for a wood rail. 1 pin and 9/10ths of a parts pin, actually both could be considered as a parts pin.
Quoted from Skyemont:
Not sure what to do with this one.
On the right side of the Playfield is that a working flipper? It looks like a ball would get stuck there if that is just a ball guide.
Went to IPDB, there at least 3 different set ups on this game. Flipper plastics used as guides. No guide in that location. 2 posts with a rubber ring. Those oblong diamond shaped posts. One could use any version of this.
Todays Road Trip started out like this, snowing and not exactly sun up yet. March 18th.
To pick up a 1961 Gottlieb Aloha. Bought it from a Pinsider in Calgary, Willathrilla. Will had the game apart and wrapped for me, got it home, set it up and it played right away, this is a beautiful game, for its age. Thanks Will.
Lately around once a year I've bought a 'New' to me Pin.
Could not resist the photo in the 7-11parking lot.
Then a photo at home.
Quoted from spinal:
For loading/unloading pins, buy a pool noodle from the dollar store and machines just roll right in and out of your vehicle easily. Learned this trick here on pinside and worked like magic on my last purchase.[quoted image]
Sorry everyone. "This will be off topic".
A pool noodle can also be used as door bumper in a tight 2 car garage. Thread string/rope through the noodle, with enough string/rope to hang the noodle from the ceiling, between the 2 parking spots. Making sure set the noodle level with the open position of the car doors.
Now back to our regular programming.
