    Came across these older pics again today, so taking the opportunity to show 'em. :-)

    This is my poor neglected (but still wholly intact and ready for restoration) pinball machine, a ROCK model made by PREMIER. (and/or Gottlieb, trying to research it when I got it sorta suggested the two companies were 'intertwined' somehow?) It dates from the early/mid 1980's, and was recovered (free!!) some yrs after that from 'poor storage' in a barn, thankfully essentially surviving all that with only minor rust/extra dirt/cobwebs/mouse poo, no particularly apparent "terminal damage". :-)

    After an initial quick cleaning/vacuuming/etc, it is seen here as it ultimately landed in my storage room where it remains to this day (now under a whole other pile of boxes of course but nevermind all that) awaiting my time/motivation to actually get into restoring it, and/or to discover exactly where I could *put* the thing if I did...?? <lol>

      Here's a YouTube video discovered this afternoon, showing how my machine might theoretically work again someday...??

      Also found an online database which definitively shows the machine was made by D. Gottlieb & Co. starting in late 1985, and is one of 1,875 they produced then. I'll havta look for a 'serial number' label on it somewhere the next time it gets 'uncovered' in the storage room...who knows, mebbe that'll be tomorrow if nothing else is going on around the shop to keep me from playing with my own toys instead of doing any actual 'work'...?? <LOLOL>
