    Welp: you just blew up the internet for the search "Williams Jalopy Pinball machine"
    We never knew it existed, now the last few remaining just skyrocketed in demand.
    Very cool

    Very fun woodrail you have there. I have played its twin Hayburners and it's a hoot.

    I have a few pins, but all a SS and too new for the hamb. Pins are as addictive as cars any day of the week!

    The bowling alley's were full of them back in the day, we would spend all day and sometimes nights playing pin ball and pool. We used to take the alley ash trays and put them under the front legs, wait for the tilting mechanism to "settle" and you could play till your fingers hurt on a quarter!

    I have one SS left, Paragon, love the phantasy art look........................

    If you ever get to Vegas, visit the Pinball Hall of Fame. Take quarters... lots of quarters.

  20. What a great pinball machine! I've played a lot of pinball over the years, many of them at the bowling alley, too, and I don't think I've ever seen that one.:cool::cool::)

    It’s a Gottlieb. If he doesn’t already know Steve Young at The Pinball Resource, he should. Especially since he needs a Gottlieb lock down bar, it’s missing in the picture.

    Twinky is a Chicago Coin pinball from 1967. The graphics on the back glass show the likeness of a British model of the era known as Twiggy. Us older farts will recognize the name. Chicago Coin did not own the rights to call the game, "Twiggy", so "Twinky" was the next best title.

    In Seattle we have a large pin ball museum full of vintage machines all for your playing pleasure. Yes they are all ready for play. There are 2 floors to delight even the most discriminating devote. On the 2nd floor there is what I believe is an earlier version of the jalopy pin. Next time in Seattle I will stop by and grab a photo. They advertise you can play with up to 75 machines on the floor anytime. Even though its advertised as a museum, all machines are there to play.

    You buy a wrist band for 4 hours of unlimited play for $13.00. or all day passes or a longer term pass. This is a fun place to take a bud nd spend a few hours. Can you imagine playing working machines of our youth?????

    just sayin'
