Get Your Engines Started!

Shop Notes 20 December 2016 | Comments Off on Get Your Engines Started!

We just finished a full shop job on this Getaway pinball machine. This is always a really fun game to play, and this machine is in particularly nice shape. Check it out!


Williams came out with Getaway in 1992, and produced more than 13,200 machines. (IPDB)


The game is a revamped version of Williams’s 1986 High Speed. It’s definitely faster and better-looking!


This is a quick-paced game with a great theme that appeals to pinball diehards and newcomers alike.


You can almost hear the pulse-quickening beats of “La Grange” if you stare at the translite long enough.


We gave this game a full shop job, pulling everything off the top of the playfield to be washed, polished, tumbled, buffed, or otherwise cleaned.


We installed Cointaker LEDs throughout.


Then we added a few custom touches, including color-coded post rubbers, and Super Bands.


This game is going to be a surprise Christmas present. What a great morning a certain someone is going to have!
