It's all my brother's fault. Really. I never thought I would have my own pinball machine, until the day he called and told me about the auction. Read all about it in The Alligator Story.

our first pinball machine.

My 1999 Xmas present to myself -- a Gottlieb
I'm currently fixing this machine, my progress log includes
scans of the playfield plastics.

YES! I finally got the Haunted House I've been looking for!
I'm sure I paid too much for it, but, but, but... :-)

No, Haunted House isn't the only Gottlieb three level game.
Well, I've been looking out for an Addams Family for quite
a while, finally found this one for not too bad a price. The
machine is well worn, the coin counter read 132158 when
I got it. Let's be kind and assume it was fitted by the very
first owner :-)

Read all about it! The story, the mods, and the dreaded previous owners.
2005-07-03 : A friend phoned, said there's a Gottlieb Royal Guard at the Parow dump. We went there, picked it up, I gave the gate dude R100 and my card, saying "call me next time". Condition is as expected for a dumped machine, no playfield glass or plastics, bent switches, etc. The backbox is complete, and the glass is OK for a 1968 machine. The white and red has mostly flaked off, typical Gottlieb. So for now, this is a parts machine...
