Here's a very popular and extremely fun pinball machine to play named "The Getaway - High Speed 2". This was a machine I shopped out while working at Funhouse Amusements. We thought it would be a great candidate to show how we restoring pinball machines. This machine had been neglected for some time and was absolutely filthy. It might not be obvious from the photos but we felt this game could be brought back to life with a little time and extra effort though. Below are a few shots of The Getaway as we first unloaded it into our shop to be restored.
