That would be sweet. My friend had 2 skee-ball ball machines that he got for cheap. They needed minor repairs but we got them going. He sold them because he was moving.

he only wants $400 for it, (for me) was $500 for most.

He has 7 sweet machines in his game room, working on them is his hobby. So I know the thing is in great working shape.

wish that I had the extra cash to go pic it up now! LOL


However, yesterday we had one delivered to the bakery, it's freekin sweet....
It's a 1977 machine named the VULCAN. (it's just like this one)

I collect and restore pinball machines. Have about a dozen right now, about half are in various stages of restoration. Only SS and DMD games though I have been thinking about getting an EM. They are fun to restore, real Rube Goldberg contraptions. The hardest part for me is restoring art work since I have no artistic talent whatsoever.

Here are a few pics I had on this computer. The first is a partial playfield pic of Attack From Mars. One of the voice quotes from that game is "Come Here Tasty Human", which explains my user name.
