My friend's co-worker saw a picture of him playing Robotron from a
party I had, and said if I would want to buy some games his dad had in
his basement that were'nt working. A few days later the guy says that
they are Asteroids an a Dolly Parton pinball, So I told my buddy to
tell him I'll take them, Even Though I have an Ateroids and don't care
for the Dolly pin. We meet the guy at his dads house and his dad said
they got them about 18 years ago or so, Then they stopped working not
long after that. Both games were so dirty you barely could see through
the glass, Then I saw some writing on the cardboard bezel with A
signiture "Scott Safran" 41,336,440. The side of the cab is signed but
was painted over with flat black, But you can still see it. Coin door
still has the sticker with All-American Billard & Shuffleboard Co. I'm
going to keep it the way it is and just clean it up, keeping it all
original, worn buttons and all. Power supply & cpu getting fixed now,
Just some burnt parts. The monitor still works great, Tried working
boards in it.

Hey!

That's really cool. Here's a sad story of what happened to Scott:

It appears Walter Day found his family in the end. Maybe you could give the
machine to his sister? She says she was there the day he made that record.

That would be a pretty awesome thing to do.

Let us know what you do
