I know very little about Pinball Machine collecting. But I remember my neighbors had an old pinball machine in their basement we used to like to play when we were kids.
All I remember is it was probably from the 60s (50s or early 70s is possible too) it already felt kinda dated when we played it in the late 70s/early 80s.
It had a beach theme. Had pictures of a bunch of teens? on a beach, I think there might have been surfing or a dune buggy. maybe a life guard. Art style reminded me a little of the Archies, but I don't think it was the Archies.
you had to push a lever or something to get the next ball to come up, it wasn't automatic like any other pinball machine I encountered. But that might have been typical of the era (and it may help date it)
Don't know what else to say about it?
Any ideas on what it might be?
