The theme of the game is related to 1950's drive-in movie culture, so it was a particularly interesting nostalgic fun retro game when it was released in 1992.
The sounds and music are highly acclaimed and add to the enjoyment of the game. There are the usual signs of use on the outside of the cabinet and glass but this adds to the character in my view. The beautiful cabinet artwork is fortunately well preserved. The artwork immediately adjacent to flipper buttons is partially worn down by fingers as happens with normal use of the machine.This is a used, 27 year old, mostly mechanical machine - it will need regular care and maintenance as with all pinball machines. I will supply a selection of spare fuses, rubbers and bulbs plus the original instruction/maintenance manuals for this machine. 1990's Bally Williams machines can function for years without significant problems but typically owners like to have an annual service done.
