EIGHT BALL Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis game is in remarkable condition. It plays extremely fast and looks incredible. One of the best purchases I have made since I started collecting. Great memories from the 70's. A bowling buddy of mine and I would combine our money when playing pinball. I would play the left flipper and him the right. We became quite good and still talk about those great times some 35 to 40 years ago! The only updates I have made to the game is the metal chroming and repaint on the legs. Gameroom record was set in Dec. '15 by my son Brian at 804, 270(3 balls).
EIGHT BALL DELUXE Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis game is a real prize to have in the collection. It was a favorite of all the bowlers at the local lanes. It has great artwork and a great playfield layout that challenges even the best players. New CPR gold playfield installed. It has a new plastic set, drop targets, pop bumpers and new flippers along with a conversion LED kit. The cabinet has a new repaint with bronze plated metals. It plays super fast and the gameroom record is 3, 075, 000(3 balls).
EVEL KNIEVEL Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverPicked up this game Dec. '15. This is a very challenging, but fun game to play. This game has a perfect backglass and an NOS playfield. The cabinet was sanded and restored and the metal chromed to make this one a real stunner. Gameroom record is 397, 000
FLASH GORDON Bally (USA)In storage, waiting for restorationNeverThis game is apart right now. It has a beautiful original back glass. The cabinet has gone through a complete restoration and an NOS playfield clearcoated by HSA Pinball awaits. Excited as this one gets closer to completion, hopefully sometime in '22.  
FLIPPER CLOWN Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!NeverPicked this game up in May 2015. Nearly mint condition add-a-ball pin. This one has had a complete cabinet repaint and repro backglass. The playfield is mint and is classis early 60's Gottlieb artwork. One of the prettiest games I have ever seen and plays super fast for a '62 game. Is mechanically perfect and clean as a pin. I installed LED's in the backglass and under the playfield while leaving the traditional lights on the playfield. Great backbox animation that early Gottlieb games were known for. This is a great addition to the collection! Gameroom record sits at 6, 395.
HIGH SPEED Williams (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis game actually belongs to my two sons. Santa Claus brought it to them in '98. They saw and played the game at a local convenience store once, And every time we would head out of town, they always seemed to get thirsty as we approached that store. I bowled with the owner of Watkins Music Company in our local town. They supplied nearly all of the pinball machines and jukeboxes to the area stores. He was pulling the High Speed off the route and the rest is history. My youngest son Brian set the "house" record at 11, 378, 370 back in '98(3 balls). This game is a little to modern for me. I keep it here for now until they get out of school and settle into a place of their own. All lights were recently changed to LED's. I'm not a fan of LED's above the playfield, but this game was the exception with the darker playfield. Absolutely amazing what the LED's did for the inserts on this game.
HOKUS POKUS Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis was one of five machines purchased from a collector out of PA. Recently finished leveling the inserts and makes the game much truer. Other than that, everything is still "all original" on this beauty. Being a lover of spinner games, this one fits the bill with three. Gameroom record stands at 229, 780
MATA HARI Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis was a rough looking game when I got it. But, it had an excellent playfield and backglass. The playfield was stripped and cleaned. Nearly everything on the playfield is new including new posts, drop targets, pop bumpers/caps, flippers and plastic set. The side rails, coin door/trim, lock bar, etc. was removed and chromed. The cabinet went through a full restoration including a breast enhancement for the young lady! New legs/levelers were installed as well as a new MPU board and lamp driver board to support the LED's installed. It made for a stunning game. Probably the best color combination of any Bally classic game. The game plays like brand new and while the playfield layout looks very simple, it is one of my favorite games and draws you back every time for just one more game. My son, Brian, holds the record at 1, 206, 070.
MEDUSA Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis was the most extensive restoration I have completed. The game was purchased very cheap and was non-working. The back glass was excellent and worth the price alone. The cabinet was sanded, primed, painted and cleared. All of the metal was removed and bright chromed. The legs were sandblasted and painted gloss black with new bolts/leg levelers. The playfield was swapped with a CPR gold. Along with all the mechanics being rebuilt/cleaned, new playfield posts, drop targets, flippers, stationary targets, rubbers, etc. were added. New targets behind the upper drop targets were replaced as was the kicker assy. between the lower flippers. The correct red translucent flippers were also added. All of these were incorrect when the game was purchased. A new MPU board, lamp driver board and sound board were all replaced. All sockets on and under the playfield were replaced and new LED Comet lights were added throughout. A stunning game was the result and worth every penny. The current record stands at 1, 717, 980.
MYSTIC Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverRestoration finally complete! Cabinet was repainted; All metal was removed and bright chromed; Playfield was restored/ clear coated by HSA Pinball; everything above the playfield was replaced; all mechanics were gone through 100%; all boards were replaced; has a beautiful original backglass and score displays were changed to blue. Simply stunning and the most colorful game in the collection! Gameroom record stands at 2, 410, 080.
NITRO GROUND SHAKER Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis game was in absolutely terrible condition when I got it. But, it was cheap, so the challenge was accepted. It has a new CPR playfield and backglass. Everything above the playfield is new including the posts, pop bumpers, drop targets, apron and a CPR plastic set. Side rails, lock bar, coin door/trim, plunger tip/trim and rear upper playfield crossbar were chromed. Cabinet went through a complete restoration and new legs/levelers were installed. It is now a must see game and plays as good as it looks!
PARAGON Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis game was restored by a previous owner. They did a cabinet restoration, clearcoated the playfield, added new drop targets, pop bumper caps and a CPR plastic set. A CPR backglass was also added. After I purchased it, All of the metal(side rails, lock bar, coin door/trim, plunger tip/trim, and upper playfield cross bar) were removed and chromed. The legs were sandblasted and repainted. I added a new lamp driver board to support the new LED's installed. A very demanding game, but a great challenge and a Classic Bally game from that era. Record stands at 1, 770, 760.
PLAYBOY Bally (USA)Set up, plays!Yes!
contact me
This one was every teenagers favorite to play back in the late 70's. I don't think it had anything to do with the game play. And it wasn't nearly as inviting a backglass as Bally's Strikes & Spares or Gottlieb's Jumping Jack, but there was something about that name, PLAYBOY! This was a no brainer to add to the collection since I was one of those teens back in the late 70's. It has gone through a restoration that included the cabinet(custom around the front door) and a NOS playfield that was clearcoated by HSA. New posts, rubbers, drop targets, pop bodies, skirts and stationary targets were added along with blue score displays. All mechanics were cleaned and rebuilt during the teardown. It's an iconic game and the top score sits at 1, 506, 530. Would need $3, 800 for it to leave.
SILVERBALL MANIA Bally (USA)Set up, plays!Never Game cabinet was restored along with side rails, coin door, etc. bright chromed. Great early 80's Bally with beautiful artwork. A new CPR plastic set along with new pop bumper caps and a lot of cleaning brought this game back to life. A really fun game to play with the key shot being the classic horseshoe bonus multiplier.
SKATEBALL Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverAdded in June '16. A beautiful original backglass. Cabinet was filled, sanded and restored. All metal was chromed, legs sanded and painted with cabinet protectors added. A new plastic set, pop bumper caps, drop targets were all added with all posts, screws, etc. polished. LED's and a new lamp driver board were also added along with red score displays. A CPR gold playfield has been installed. This is a colorful game with the record standing at 4, 156, 440.
SPACE JAM Sega (USA)Set up, plays!NeverThis game is owned by my two sons. They received it for Christmas in 2000. Both were huge Jordan fans, so this was a natural. Once they both settle down, they will have to decide who is going to take the Space Jam, and who will get the High Speed. Space Jam is to modern for my liking, but it a great game for them. My son Brian set the "house" record at over 66, 000, 000 many years ago(3 balls). It sure was fun watching them enjoy those games the way I enjoyed the games from my era! Recently added LED's to the playfield and inserts. The pop of color from the inserts really brightened this game up!
STRIKES AND SPARES Bally (USA)Set up, plays!NeverAs a collector, this was the first game I purchased. Traveled to Lynchburg, VA to look it over. It had a perfect backglass and played with few problems. I knew it had potential, but being new at this, I couldn't quite see then what I see today. Calling around and doing some research, I found the current tech man I now use. He has been repairing EM games for 40 years. He stripped the game for me. Since this was my first purchase, this game was going to be fully restored. The playfield was terrible, so it was sent to Brian at HSA Pinball for a stage 2 restoration. A local cabinet man sanded, painted and stenciled the cabinet to its original colors. All of the metal on the game was bright chromed and the legs were sandblasted and painted black. The game was from Germany and still had the German coin plates in it when I bought it. For my first restoration as a novice, I am really proud of the way it turned out. My "house" record is 1, 341, 520.
TOP SCORE Gottlieb (USA)Set up, plays!Yes!

Playfield is near perfect, has a new Bgresto backglass and the cabinet has been sanded and restored with a new coin door, coin mechanism and new legs. Game plays and scores perfectly. The gameroom record stands at 124, 780. Would need $4k+ for it to leave.
