    I had to stop buying old Pontiacs to restore so I could spend more time with the wife and kids. I saw "Special when Lit" last year. Tryed VP, the bug took route, CL, then Bally Space Invaders was brought home. Now I have four early SS machines. They all needed repair to some extent. But to me, it has been a good fit to my specific talents. A little electrical troubleshooting, art restoration, some chrome, and light effects. Plus the joy of restoring a piece of history. Very much like cars, and now they can all fit in my house. And the family unit actually takes quite a bit of interest in it. Now the MAME cabinet is looking abandoned. Built a smaller VP/MAME to preserve the video games and try VP titles. I still have the 77' T/A though. I bet I could get a nice DMD for it.....
