It's amazing how many different models of Pong there is. I'd love to see the ones you have. Here's some to get you started. Sorry they're in black/white, but that's the camera I had in the day.

I don't own a single pong machine, but there are some very interesting looking ones in here. Maybe I will start getting into some of these

Oddest PONG I ever saw (owned breifly and sold): The whole PONG circuit was built into a black metal box that was attached to the back of your TV .. and had two odd looking, heavy duty plastic (Red/Blue) controllers .. Strange beast.

The only one I have is the atari c-380, but mine is all brown woodgrain the one in the pic above looks like a beige color?? :?

If I were to get one which one would be the best one as far as being fun to play and fairly easy to get a hold of?? :ponder:
And which is the rarest and hardest to find?? :ponder:

Here are the 2 "pongs" I own;
The first is a Radofin Tele-sports TV game, I love the "thumb slide" control

The second is a Roberts Rally IV

How are the Target shooting pongs played? I have never found one with the gun. I am a huge fan of light gun games on the NES.

Here's a couple pictures of the Nintendo pong units that were released in Japan:

Nintendo Block Buster (i.e. Breakout)

Nintendo TV-Game 15

And then, here's probably the coolest pong machine I've ever seen. I don't own this unit, unfortunately, I just found the picture on some site somewheres and saved it to my HD because the thing was so cool looking.

Only owned a couple of them...one was a big orange base (Odyessy?) that was possible to "lose" your screen paddles in (since you could move in 4 directions). Wrecked our TV :P The second was an Atari PongII console.

I have those 2 as well but mine isn't the Tele-games version, it is the all-black Atari version. I also have an Odyssey one but I have yet to modify the cord so that I can play it as they had a special connector that plugged into their proprietary TV adapter. Here's a link to a great website for Pong-related stuff.

http://www.pong-story.com/intro.htm

If you ever have a question, just e-mail the guy that runs the site. He's great and has responded to every question that I have ever asked.

Anyone can help me find the Pong unit in picture pong04.jpg?

I'd like to go hunting for it but don't know what name to search for. I'm sure there were other non-radio shack units that looked like that one.

If not then do I search for "Radio shack pong"?

Mine used to have blue dials and I believe it was from Sears but I may be wrong.

It is called a "TV Scoreboard" so I'd try Radio Shack and TV Scoreboard. I searched TV Scoreboard and found the following 2 like it:
