It's... SHOW TIME!

Uh-hum! Right then you lot, stop giggling and pay attention.

 

I picked-up a Bally Show Time bingo pinball right before Christmas. (I don't mean I physically picked it up, well actually, I did pick it up
and load it into the Expedition but I mean that I collected the machine and it came into my permanent possession.) Anyway, an interesting piece
-- I've never seen one of these before and it might make an interesting restoration project over the forthcoming year.

 

Some interesting facts (from personal observation): The cabinet weighs about 10 pounds and the head weighs roughly 814.2 pounds. There is
enough wiring in the head to light a small city. I wouldn't want to be in the back of one of these when all those rotors and gears are turning
because the game looks like it would have no trouble in mangling your average family car. I'm in awe of the mechanical marvel of all this and
it how it works (even though I deal with digital stuff all the time at an engineering level). They don't make them like this anymore.

 

I need a motor for unit mounted on the back-door (I don't know what it called -- "car mangler" or something but a manual is on the way to me so
I'll have a better idea in a week or so). Also, anyone got a backglass they want to sell as this one is probably 5 out of 10.
