    IMG_20170411_144719_836.jpg 20210313_153851.jpg Wanted to stop in and say hello. I've been lurking on here recently and finally decided to make it official and join. I've got a 75 Dart Swinger w a /6 that I inherited from my grandpa a few years back. It is bone stock and I've been driving it that way for 4 years but I'm ready to freshen up the motor for some summer driving. I'm sure I'll be posting on the slant 6 board soon. Nice to meet you!

        Welcome aboard,
        Nice Dart you have there and the fact that it was your grandfather's car makes it even better!

          Very nice Dart!

          I’m partial to 75 Model year. My Dad bought a 75 Scamp brand new and I had a 75 Valiant Brougham during high school.

          Welcome!

          Welcome and that’s in great shape! You’ve got a head start since it doesn’t need any bodywork.

          My grandmother bought her ‘75 Scamp new which I’m the caretaker of now.

            Pinball is my other big hobby. Own a couple of games and play a lot in my free time. I'm pretty good at getting 4th place in tournaments but never quite good enough to win it all.

              Big fan of the Comet/Cyclone series of Williams tables.

              Should have bought one when I could have somewhat afforded it.

              Now they are pretty crazy.

              Last "deal" I saw on one was a High Speed for $1700.

                Oh yeah dude pin prices are insane right now. I got into pinball in 2003 and Comet/Cyclone at that time would have been 700 to 1200 depending on condition. Nowadays 1700 is a pretty fair price for either of those games. You can always play on your Ps4/Xbox and get some of the fun for cheap, a lot of the old Williams games are on there. Not quite the same as real life but still scratches the itch sometimes.

                I did own a Tekken II for a while.

                Paid $275 at an auction around 2000-ish.

                Pinball machines I was interested in were around $500-750.

                Funny, when I needed to move that console out I could hardly give it away.

                The local vending/gaming company said I could "just leave it".

                Uh, no.


                Old Comet/Cyclone are pricey as are Pinbot/Xenon.

                High Speed is probably my least favorite of that series.

                I'd be happy with something like Taxi, or another mid line, mid run machine.
