I am currently working on getting my automotive repair facility called Jax Auto & Tire opened up in Crystal Lake IL. Have a target opening of mid April. I have a side room in the lobby area that I am going to have a Free Play arcade for my customers. I am going to have 2 pinballs and 2 video arcades. I have a Mario Andretti pinball, a 60 in 1 cocktail arcade, and a Fisherman's Bait arcade. I need 1 more car themed pinball for the shop. I need a machine that I can get the most bang for the buck, a "B/C" title like Nascar or Viper Night Driving. Have a budget of about $1600 tops, no shipping. Willing to travel a couple/few hours if need be.

Is this so your customers will be plenty distracted when you approach them to tell them that their muffler bearings need to be replaced? Just kidding. Sounds like a cool idea. Best of luck!

Headlamp fluid and change the air in the tires.

Good luck with the shop!!

I had something similar with my shop, the customer/kids loved it. Freeplay is the way to go.

I'd sell my players getaway if I can find a nicer one somewhat quickly to replace it. Also have a Williams grand prix if you are interested.

Found a NASCAR, actually a pair of NASCAR's. Had to buy them both, will have one for sale shortly.

Great idea - good luck with your new business! I'd go there to have my car serviced.
