Pinballs and Volkswagens

Postby Chris Silver » Mon May 21, 2018 1:38 pm

Oddly, there seems to be a subculture inside our subculture. I am coming across many pinball collectors who have Volkswagens.

Yesterday at Uberhare's place I saw a giant North American one of a kind mini bus. I ran into an unknown collector when I was in Newfoundland who had an assortment of beetles. I've seen Geester crash over at my place in a minibus way back during one of the Hawkesbury flea fairs and I believe Ghislain has one as well. There are a couple more people that I can't think of at the moment. Would anyone else like to chime in regarding their Volkswagens?

Can we see some pictures?

Yep, I still have my '70.

You could have seen it, Chris, but you were too busy to drop by. :cry: :cry: :cry:

Well, I kid. It's actually been in my mom's garage for the last few years. Needs just a little bit of work. :?

Beforehand, my beetle was actually stored for over a decade in this bride's dad's garage. Brought home in Nov. 2013

Used to be my college-daze daily driver in the '90's. Hope to get it restored!

You are all nut jobs !!!!!!! VW nut jobs.

Urban Dictionary definition # 5

nutjob
a batshit-crazy person; someone who is out of reality with reality. May or may not have a shopping list of mental disorders.


Collecting pinball machines is the first sure sign of being a nut job. You people are just taking it to a whole new level. That's right, I'm taking to you Jason, you VW driving, plane flying, computer reprogramming, pinball collecting total uber whacked out nut job! ;) :lol: :lol:

1 Slot - 3 Reel
4 Vids - Rush the Rock x 2 linked, Mame(under repair), Megatouch XL
