So I had the cabinet back in 1991 or so, but I needed the backbox. Every summer a fellow collector and woodrail nut job named Steve from Toronto would rent a 1...

No more classic stern plates, but will keep looking.
Do have some real early ones from Stern when they bought CCM. First gen games like Rawhide, Pinball etc.

I will check Dr.Dude. The Gottlieb ones are close, but best to have the correct ones.

Matching parts to members (And you know that notion, just crossed my mind)

That thread title, or part of it is from a Grateful Dead song. I am grateful, but apparently not dead yet.

Re: THE MAACA DAILY NEWS! Your daily read about YOU,the members!

All in all it was a little less humid today in Montreal than last week, but that is not what I really want to report here, it is just the usual preamble to today's news. People talk about the weather in elevators and such, but here I am mostly a weatherman in winter as some of you may have observed ...

Re: Sonic Prospector

I had fixed one of these for an eccentric guy in Westmount with a nagging trophy wife years ago.

Goofy backglass, makes no sense, but the game plays fast and should appeal to the guys who own solid state machines.

This one is a fast car when tuned properly.

Acceptance is key. Especially accepting situations that you have or had no control. Possibly the Keyest of keys. So is forgiveness, another key trait. And moving on and on. "I don't live in the past, we're not headed that way." (some guy said that one time) I understand everything Lee wro...
