A few things about this years Allentown I have been looking froward to ;)
Just for that, the HBV will ride again!!! :D
I will take you to the Dodge dealer this weekend so you can pick up the HBV Mk III

I will call ahead to ensure they have a model without the rear power window.

I wanted to go there but the opening hours are a BIG let down. It closes at 9pm!

Last year I went to Pinstastic New England and I'll repeat the experience this year. It's closer and you can play in the game area all night long! You can drink alcoholic beverages and it feels like a party. The ambiance was really interesting.

There's a lot of us staying at the Wingate on Hamilton Rd.

Avoid the Comfort Suites at all costs. I'm not going to get into the details yet again. Just trust me on this one.

Frig.....I hope there are pins left to buy down there. Maybe it's because I'm poor but I just can't throw down a bunch of money sight unseen.
