Retro Arcade Graphics

Last night we went out for dinner at our local, hole-in-the-wall pizza joint. Not only do they have great pizza, and an appetizer of rolls made out of mounds of pizza dough slathered with butter and garlic, but they have an awesome little arcade filled with totally retro games. We're talking pre-video, circa 1970. They have four upright machines and three pinball machines, all with amazing old graphics. So I took some photos!

Pictured below are two images from Pro-Football pinball (made by Gottlieb in 1973), one from the marquee of Speed King (made by Chicago Coin in 1970), and two pics from the Stunt Pilot marquee (made by Midway in 1971).

They do have one game from my old school playing days, and it was my son's favorite. He thought Inky, Blinky, Pinky, and Sue were funny, but I think he has a crush on Ms. Pac-Man!
