I grew up with a GTB Bank-A-Ball from when I was little. Spent vast amounts of time in bars and arcades in the 70's and 80's where I developed a love for old penny arcade games. Did the whole videogame thing from the late 70's until around 83 and went back to pinball 100%. A few years ago I started collecting old machines to do restoration work on them and learn EM repair and spiraled out of control. Thank god I'm still an EM guy through and through because I can always find a project for a decent price, gun games, mutoscopes, EM games and pins, etc. Now I'm actually regressing to even older machines, love testers, fortune tellers, WWII era arcade machines are where my heart lies these days, but pinball is always there. It's a great hobby as long as your actually satisfied with what you have and ignore the small amount of greed and arrogance in the hobby and try to avoid being a hoarder. I see so many guys that are stockpiling pins in their basements, 100 games stacked on each other than are never going to be enjoyed, but that's part of the greed I guess.
