What started you on buying Pinball machines?
* The fun I had playing pinball w/ friends in West Lafayette, IN as a teenager from mid 70's to summer 1980.
* In 2004 I stumbled across the fact that you could bid on/buy pinball machines and parts online via ebay. Uh-oh, trouble, slippery slope, woops, ....bought 5 Gottlieb pins from '04 - '06.
Chilled out for a few years, then in 2011 got back into it and picked up 2 ss Bally project pins.
Getting on Pinside in 2011 has only made things worse (ur, um ...better?), ....hanging out with other Pinball Crackheads (aka: enablers), learning more about pinball, etc. Great hobby!
