Any Pinball Aficionados out there?

I'm sure there have to be a few out there.

I've loved watching old rebuilds and while I don't have the time to do one right now I'd at least like to try to find one of the following for my father-in-law. There are two he's always wanted (likely from the 1960's): Eight Ball, or Snow Derby

I love old pinball machines and juke boxes. I have a 1952 Seeburg Selectomatic 100 in my living room and would have a Captain Fantastic or Kiss pinball machine if I could get the wife on board.

Although I rarely admit it, we have three machines, and I may or may not have played "competitively" in local leagues the late 90s to early 2000s.


Current machines:
-Faces. Sonic built (Spanish) - 1976
-F14 Tomcat, Williams built -1988
-Addams Family, Williams built - 1992


Josh, everything you will ever want to know about the machines of interest can be found at:

Nice thanks for the info! I actually remember playing Addams Family. I used to go with my brothers to the arcades back when they still existed. They all have a bit of nostalgia associated with them which you never expect.

I grew up at the shore, Margate NJ, and spent endless evenings at Jilly's Arcade in NJ.

This is from last year. All machines are still 25c and 3 to 5 balls. Used and abused, but a good assortment and open 24hrs/day in season, until midnight the rest of the year.

I helped a buddy restore a few for his game room in Germany. He got them from MWR auctions over the years. My favorites were Mars Attacks and Elvira. He also had an Evil Kenevil and Playboy machines, but they weren't as fun.

That being said, my passion is Phooseball. I've become equally proficient in both German (Lowen) and French (Rene Pierre/Bonzini) styles. I can also hold my own on American Tornado tables.

I worked in an arcade back in high school and Addams Family was by far the best of that era. A few year later Jurassic Park came out and it was a good one too.
