High Speed is Ready to Race! Posted on December 4, 2017January 8, 2024 by Kris Bliznick We just finished a full shop job on this High Speed pinball machine. This is a fun game with a great theme. Plus, it looks great now! Williams came out with High Speed in 1986, and produced more than 17,000 of the machines. (IPDB) The game was an instant hit, with its universally appealing theme of trying to outrace the police. Game designer Steve Ritchie allegedly said the game was based on the true story of a time he raced the cops in his Porsche at 146 mph. We gave this game a full shop job, pulling everything off the playfield to be polished, washed, tumbled, buffed, or otherwise cleaned. We installed Cointaker LEDs throughout. They look great, plus they burn cooler and last longer than traditional bulbs. We added a few special touches, too, including Super Bands and color-coded post sleeves. This game is long gone, but check out our other great games for sale!
