Smile "Wizard" Pinball Machine Bought

That's right. Yesterday I bought a "Wizard" pinball machine, built by Bally from 1975.

It was listed on ebay. Game was located in Burbank, about 13 miles from me. I was watching it on that site and asked the owner of the game if there were no bids, could I drive over and look at it. He agreed.

The auction ended with no bids, so I drove over yesterday to check it out. The owner and I played 3 games (I won 2 out of 3) and I paid for it. It was delivered to my house today.

It was a strange feeling playing a game I haven't played in about 30 years. This always was my favorite pinball game; even back in the '70s it was my favorite.

Here are some photos of it I took just after delivery..

Maybe there wasn't enough room on the backglass for Elton?

Or maybe he didn't give permission to use his likeness?

Me, too. That was my favorite summer destination back in the mid-to-late '70s... the arcade!
I forgot to mention that 10,005 "Wizard" pinball machines were built.

Yes, it is nice owning a few pinball machines. Another one I like a lot is "Bow & Arrow."

Of the 3, The Kiss machine is my favorite. I got it for $500 from an arcade/jukebox distributor. The Star Trek was only $50 but it was a fixer-upper. The Gorgar I bought for $100 at an estate sale. You lucked up getting that Wizard so close to home, I'd hate to pay shipping to the east coast for that.

Although I don't own one, This is without a doubt the best machine I've played and I'd say that if I'd never laid eyes on the show.
