    Hey all,

    As the title states, what the first back glass art that you remember As a kid that has stuck with you through all these years?

    What was your age, and where was the machine? Post a pic of it!

    Mine was Williams' COMET (1985). I'm 36 now, so I was about 7 or 8 when I first noticed it at the local 7-11.

    That creepy coaster face has never left my brain!

    Your turn!

    High Speed at Chuckee Cheese. Early 90's, I was in early grade school. Those Cops' faces are so brutal.

    All three right around the same time in 1980 - Firepower, Black Knight, and Xenon, in the Time Out Arcade in Massapequa NY. I was a H.S. freshman and I'd played pinball before that, but those are the first three that made enough of an impression on me to remember them.

    Stern Nugent. I was about 7 or 8, and I thought it was the coolest, with that guitar turning into a shotgun...

    I remember when I was a kid (1989) my rich uncle had all the hot system 11 games. He had them till he cheated on my aunt and she took a sledge to them all. Rip huo games. We could fit four games in the bed of his truck for each dump run.

    Bad Cats at the local bowling alley in the early 90's. I would had been around 12 years old. The lady hitting the cat on the back glass was memerable. I didn't know about her tattoo until a few years ago

    Bally Mata Hari... I was around 10 years old I think. Our neighbor came in saying he hauled an old pinball machine from work and he wanted to sell it to my dad for 150$.

    And so it went, Bally Mata Hari was set up in our house. But then the flippers didn't work anymore. My father didn't want to fiddle with it so 2 hours later it was gone again .

    In hindsight it probably was something simple
