Can anyone guess what jukebox is against the back wall and what car shares the garage with these pinball machines?

I’m out on my own adventure today. Nearly 3000 miles RT to pick up a grail pin.

Added over 2 years ago:

I got the pin and am headed home. 1200 miles to go!
Picking up this pin is somewhat bittersweet. I’m very lucky to have it. Anyone following the TBL saga knows how rare these are. Unfortunately a lot of people have money on the table for one and nothing to show for it.

Quoted from kcZ:

But did you leave your wallet at the gas pump? You sure like to take some road trips for pins!

@kcz , you have a good memory! I now live in Hong Kong, but still actively buy pins. I come back to the states every couple months and drive our Sienna van about the country picking up pins I’ve bought. But this trip started out with a hitch; I got here without the van keys, So I was forced to take my pick up. Thankfully, I should have a rain-free return trip. I have to more trips planned this week. Went to Kentucky to pick up The Munsters and another to Texas to pick up Centaur and Taxi.

#11226 1 year ago

So, I’m heading back from Arizona to Mississippi with Lexy in the back. I gas-up in Albuquerque and continue heading east and have a craving for tacos. I stop at a Taco Bell in the middle of nowhere. The family of five in front of me takes five minutes to place a $105 order. It’s going to take forever to fill this order and I still have almost a thousand miles to travel and don’t have time for this. I’ve got to get on the road and press on towards Mississippi. The next Taco Bell is in Tucumcari about 100 miles down the road.

#11268 1 year ago
Quoted from Adaminski:

Some good-natured ribbing, as I also occasionally eat at Taco Bell....
Surely you could have found a better taco option in New Mexico along I40 between Albuquerque and Tucumcari!!
At least it was snow, not rain.

Ribbing deserved and you’re right about better taco options in New Mexico! I was just amazed how five people (three were children) is could spend $105 at Taco Bell!

#11269 1 year ago

My second road trip of the week and first NIB. I got to meet the former and current owners of Flip-N-Out Pinball. Met up with Larry and Zach to get the machine.

My third road trip and 4450 miles this week. Bringing back a restored Taxi and custom restored Centaur. Both are wrapped and tucked in the UHaul. A shout out to bballfan for the restorations. He does phenomenal work! I also dropped off TAF for him to restore.

You've been holding onto that TAF for awhile.

Almost 5 years awaiting restoration! We unwrapped it, checked connections and turned it on. It worked great and all the mechs property cycled. bballfan and I have some great ideas for this restoration. It will be special.

Great experience shipping with Fastenal. There’s a Full Throttle buried in that crate! radius118 did a phenomenal job crating this pin. A great buying experience. Someday I’ll have this pin sitting next to the Alien LE I recent bought.

Finishing up a 1000+ mile round-trip. I drove to Indiana to pick up a Benchmark Ten Strike I purchased earlier this year. I’ve always wanted a big ball bowler. One slipped through my fingers about a year ago. I came to my senses and realized they’re way too big for my game room and started looking for something smaller. On the way back I stopped by Flip N Out and picked up my BKSOR-LE and Beatles Gold from Zach.

The pic of the Ten Strike is in the seller’s home.

These 5‘ x 8‘ U-Haul cargo trailers are fantastic. It can easily swallow up six NIB pins!

That is a good looking pinball. I was holding out for a new TNA run but I might have to buy this one....Let us know what you think after playing...

You’ll be waiting awhile for new, I’m pretty sure they’re out of production (unless they start the line again). You see TNAs on the secondary market often.

By the numbers... nine states, 1700 miles, 123 gallons of gas, 39 hours driving, one hotel room, three pinball machines.

I purchased a Gorgeous Congo from pinballer22 near Omaha over a year ago. Justin stored the pin until I could pick it up. He does some great restoration work and has some very nice pins. Then I drove to Spooky Pinball in Benton, WI to pick up my TNA and ACNC. Charlie gave me a tour of the facilities. What an experience! An actual tour of a pinball factory in a small Wisconsin town, everything is done under one roof, it was simply amazing. Maybe I gave get a job here when I retire from my current gig!

How did you get a TNA from Spooky?? You must have crazy pull to pick up sold out pins from the

No special favors, I ordered in the last group of 50. It was about two years ago and I asked Kayte to get the very last one off the production line. I waited to pick it and ACNC up at the same time.

Quoted from EasternBloc:

2133 miles in and Slick Chick has some company. 1000ish miles to go dodging weather patterns!

Your trip sounds like some of mine! I made a 3000 mile trip to Phoenix and back last year to get a Lexy. I had to buy a new set a tires on the way and encountered a freak ice storm in New Mexico on the return. The Pinball was well wrapped and stayed nice and dry.

Quoted from Ritewing:

Picked up a HUO Austin Powers yesterday at an auction. Drove 6 hours to pick it up, then spent the evening with some friends in Connecticut. Drove the 6 hours back home today, and we played with it for over two hours.
Everything works perfectly.. The playfield needs cleaned, as the black belts have dirtied it. Other than that, everything works and is perfect.
I paid $3,000 for it so I am pretty happy.
I would like to know how to find out how many total games played is, but I don't see that as an option.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

25 in his collection. Are you referring to the loading?
I’d be more careful with strap placement around the front of the cabinet and secure the head to the cabinet with a strap or shrink wrap and pad between head and rails

Quoted from illawarra92:

not one of the top notch classic sterns but this one is for me.
played this very game to death back when it was on location. was collecting pinball back in 1978.
the game had the operators number on it, so i called it as one of my friends was looking to buy his first pin. this was 1983.
so my friend bought the nugent we played all the time, we grew apart but reconnected a few years ago. so a few weeks ago he contacts me and asked if I was interested in buying the game.
hell yes! so even though I'm a pure em pinball guy feel this one belongs here now.
also a small note, it is an aussie built nugent.
