ALADDIN'S CASTLE Bally (USA)Montato, giocabile!MaiPicked this one up in a tiny house in North Jersey. This guy has machines everywhere. 3 in the living room. 1 in the dining room. Even had 1 in kitchen. and all were beaters. I was looking out for moths or butterflies! Weird guy.  
BIG DADDY Williams (USA)Montato, giocabile!MaiI picked this up from a vendor. I had been looking for this one as I am partial to Williams games, especially reverse wedge heads. The electronics are in excellent shape, but sadly the playfield and cabinet have seen better days. A beater. Pops barely push the ball. "A pinball machine is a terrible thing to waste" Update: Went over this game from rail to leg, and man! This game is a player. I ordered a repro backglass and of course it's flawed...but, galaxies away from the trashed glass. All pop bumpers, kicks and flippers have been rebuilt. Big Daddy has joined the many of death row.
BON VOYAGE Bally (USA)Montato, giocabile!MaiPerfect Original Condition. This Bally is like new. I got this game from a friend in PA. I was trading games back and forth and this one caught my eye. I was traveling a lot to Houston and this game fit my mood at the time. The backglass is really funny with some hidden humor! Like the 2 guys falling from the plane, or the insert coin here on the main girl's belt on the glass. "Big John" on the Pilot name tag. There is a lot of innuendo that tells the tale of how some games were designed for the bar/casino scene. It's a fun player that's fun to look at, too!
FASHION SHOW Gottlieb (USA)Smontato, in attesa di restauroMai  
FREEDOM Bally (USA)Montato, giocabile!MaiAh, Freedom. This is my good karma game. I bought this from a cop in Southern NJ. Freedom was in desperate need of a cleaning and it didn't work properly when I got it home. It had a raggy backglass. I purchased a reproduction glass and got the game working and shopped. It's a fun game head-to-head and my twin and I play it often. Where's the good Karma? I found on the classifieds that somebody was looking for the EM glass for Freedom. I had it and shipped it to my man for the heck of it. Maybe somebody will do me a solid one day.
GIGI Gottlieb (USA)Smontato, in attesa di restauroMai  
GOLD RUSH Williams (USA)Montato, giocabile!Mai I found this one on Ebay. Cheap enough and local to me. Ad stated mechanically restored but cabinet needs work. The game was awfully dirty . Much of the on-field features were barely functioning, bad plastics... but hey, it was mechanically restored by a professional! I decided to have fun with this one and went with the polar opposite colors of the original. I could have stenciled the original artwork since have my own donor, but went with a cowboy motif. Some think this is sacrilege, but what the hell.
HEAT WAVE Williams (USA)Montato, giocabile!MaiI have been on the hunt for William's reverse wedge heads and Heat Wave was a prime target. The backglass was trashed, but thanks to BGResto, its as good as new. Will be restoring this keeper from top to bottom. Welcome to death row.  
LITTLE JOE Bally (USA)Montato, giocabile!MaiI bought this game from an Ebay auction which is a crap shoot in itself...and this game was. A bad backglass, a terrible playfield, and non-working to boot. Since I was stuck with it, I decided to completely refurbish it. I wanted a dice game and this game was nearly a deliberate taunt to the gaming authorities trying to outlaw pinball. I sent the playfield out to Phoebe. She completely retouched the field and coated it. The backglass was shot, so I sent that out and had it reproduced. I did the mechanical repairs, and the cabinet was left in good original condition....the game turned out better than I expected. Death row inmate!
MONTE CARLO Bally (USA)Montato, giocabile!DipendeThis is a fun game. I picked this up to round out my "gambling" motif for certain games. The game has a great original cabinet and back-glass. The playfield has been touched up and clear coated. It's a fun game to go head-to-head with. Great chimes and art!
SING ALONG Gottlieb (USA)Montato, giocabile!MaiI got this game from a guy in Haddenfield, NJ. It had virtually no art left on the playfield from the kick-out holes down! The cabinet was spray painted black with white polka-dots! So why did I buy this game? Because Sing Along is one of those rare games that deserves a resurrection! The beauty of the artwork coupled with the perfect playfield symmetry. Pinball at it's finest...Sing Along will never, ever, leave my collection. Welcome to death row.
SOCCER Williams (USA)Smontato, in attesa di restauroMaiGot this game from a vendor. It needs to be completely restored.  
SPOT-A-CARD Gottlieb (USA)Montato, giocabile!MaiMy first wood-rail. The game is significant in that this was the first to use the cascading kick-out holes, ala Kings and Queens, Sing Along, and Melody. Actually, the kick-out holes rely on rebound pins to progress to the neighboring hole. A nice effect. No "Game Over" lites on the backglass...just the match number. Buh Bye. A good playing wood-rail with outstanding artwork and lighting.
SWEET HEARTS Gottlieb (USA)Montato, giocabile!MaiFound this Jewel in a local classifieds. The cabinet was great but the play-field was trashed. I had had a poor example of this game years ago, but didn't want to restore it. This game has great clean mechanicals, so that was a big influence. It took 3 months of hard work to touch up the play-field, I clear coated it and it turned out great. Replaced the back-glass with a new Gottlieb licensed glass. Its a great player and one of my favorites to play. Another Death row inmate! Away with ya!!
TIME ZONE Bally (USA)Montato, giocabile!MaiIn ICU for a facelift. I picked this up from a really nice guy. His mantra was simple. Purchase games on the cheap. Which is hard to argue. He's playing the same games as others worth 5-10 times what he would pay...or I paid! This game has a decent playfield that needs cosmetic help. The backglass is trashed, but a new one is on order. A surprisingly fun game to play!  
TOUCHDOWN Williams (USA)Montato, giocabile!DipendeI bought this game from a fellow in the Pocono Mt. area. He was winding down a vending repair business and this was his last EM machine. He did a really nice job refurbishing the cabinet, and the remainder of the game is original. The playfield and backglass are spotless. He threw in another TD body with decent playfield. I remember he kept throwing more and more parts in my truck as I was getting ready to go. The guy was done with the pin business. It was my day that day!
TWIN WIN Bally (USA)Montato, giocabile!MaiWell, being a twin makes this game all the more alluring. This is actually my second swing at this title. I sold the previous title because the game had it cosmetic challenges. This particular example is extremely nice. Now it's time to play with the twins.

“Sing Along will never, ever, leave my collection. Welcome to death row.” That’s pretty funny. That’s basically my response when people ask me why I spend so much time restoring games, which is “I want them to look good at my estate sale.”

Great looking collection and cool stories.
 Da jjm il 14-12-2017 alle 15:16:
I really love the back stories on how you acquired your games....very interesting and thorough. Thanks for taking the time!

I like the fact that you included a Chicago Coin game, Hula-Hula, in the interest of diversity. I've never seen so many sparkling Bally playfields in one place. . .in my home state no less! Terrific line-up.

Really enjoyed your stories for each game, and so glad to hear you enjoy playing them as much as restoring the classics. Thanks for sharing your smorgasbord of well restored machines.

I like collections like this one. Unusual titles, well cared for and in outstanding shape. Great pics, and the history behind each and every game is fun to read and adds to the appeal. Well done. Keep it going!

I remembering playing all the games that are in your collection as a kid growing up back in the 1960's and 1970's....Your collection is outstanding and you should feel proud of your accomplishments.Nice selections of pins too.
