    Just picked this puppy up a few weeks ago for the game room, I love it and have always been a pinball fan. I think I might have to start a colletction as a hobby. Anyone else collecting them?

    I do know someone (a former mechanic of mine) who collected pinball machines a few years ago. He recently moved from MA to CT, but I'd be happy to pass along your contact information if you like. PM me with details if you would like me to forward them.

    Guy I wored with at Stratus used to buy old ones and restore them. had a shipping container in his back yard stuffed with old machines he was going to "get around to".

    its an addiction.. it starts out innocently enough but it tends to take over your living space. kind of like a C&R FFL on steroids
    ive got cabinets in my kitchen filled with dead CPS2 boards andbags and bags of pushbuttons and cherry switches..
    my live in GF is not amused :p

    C-pher does this party you speak of involve alcohol? [cheers]. It is funny how drinking can make pinball a rowdy sport.
