Onya Nino - great read #*# #*#

Your love of pinball really comes through in your posts, and now I know a bit of your background it becomes apparent why.  As you have probably worked out I am obsessed with pins from the same era as you, and have the same drive to get dead pins up and running and out in loving homes.  I also share your love of the mighty Paragon now that I own one.  Strange thing was that back in the day I did not play it much because it kicked my arse!  It takes a few hours of playing to get the hang of the shots and the scissor flippers, but once you get hooked you can play it for hours :D

Tony, you can put me in the queue for completing the questionnaire, but it is a bit daunting as the standard set has been very high ^^^

cheers
Ian


The best part of the Questionnaire is that we will hear from everyone (I hope).. A great idea (Well done Tony) !!

I'm glad you like Paragon - it is an AWESOME machine..

I guess you could be next in line, Ian ?
