Twilight Zone Pinball Machine

Well, last Wednesday Kristin and I picked up the pinball machine that I always wanted, Twilight Zone.  The great thing about it was that it was only about 1 1/2 hours away from our house.  The story goes like this:  I was reading the newsgroup rec.games.pinball when I came across an add for a Twilight Zone that the guy had to move quickly and was prices exceptionally good, better than I’ve seen in about 9 months.  After talking it over with Kristin, we decided that it was something that we were willing to get, so I gave the guy a call around 6:00.  The guy let me know it was a first come, first serve.  He already had someone from Columbus, OH coming Thursday, someone from Tennesee was coming Friday, and someone from North Carolina was going to stop by Saturday Morning.  It had to be out by Saturday afternoon because he had another shipment of pinball machines coming in for him to repair and he had no room for some of them if the Twilight Zone was there.  He had kept it from the last round 6 months ago when he had a shipment come in to fix up.  He said the only way I would be able to get it is to come up that night, which we did.  We finally made it down to Georgetown, KY around 8:00 and checked it out.  The machine was in excellent condition, so we bought it.  Believe it or not, but it actually fit in Kristin’s jeep liberty perfectly.  I’m planning on adding a few mods to make it look nice.  The pictures I took didn’t come out too well, so I’ll post some pictures of it once I get some good ones.
