Hi Daddy Al, I have had my Barcrest Thunderbird for about 10 years now! And yes I understand why you regret selling yours,it does give great gameplay and the sounds and features are especially the super ones!
I was reading your posting of your travels to other arcades and see you found 2 no less in the wild! I have not seen one in the wild since 1 was in my local pub over 10 years ago! Where is the arcade you refer to?
I have left some pics of  my Thunderbird with Mr P to pass onto Tommy who is going to try and do an emulation of it. Hopefully see you in June

Cheers

Phil

Hi Keith,

Welcome, I am new here too and can honsetly say it is great to be able to share the fondness for the old machines.

I have not made it down to Mr P's yet but will be visiting on the 11th April to experience it for myself.

It seems like you had a great day there recently.

Regards

Hi DaddyAl84,

Thanks also for the welcome.

 I will certainly be making my best efforts to aget down to Mr P's to experience what he has put together for us to enjoy, I am going to try and get down early in the New Year, it is quite a long drive from Sunny Mcr  ;) so will have to see if I can do it whilst off work and the weather is kind.

Yes Thunderbirds is the car themed machine, she has some great features and the sounds are pretty good to. My Local Pub used to have it and thats where I first played it, and I was always impressed with the features and payouts! used to leave up more times than down, sadly after it left the pub I never saw it again anywhere! and to this day I have not seen one on my travels and I have visited quite a few arcades in my time, that was until about 7 years ago I saw mine advertised on a fruit machine suppliers website in Glasgow and just went for it! I was a bit worried at first thinking what if its broken or breaks, but it came with a full manual, spare bulbs and apart from a power supply issue she has been fantastic. I have just treated myself to another Machine Classic Club Cops & Robbers  and am hoping she does not dissappoint me!

Do you have your own fruit machine/s?

Regards

Thanks for the personal welcome Mr P,

Yes I can see from your posts and your arcade website that you are very passionate about your machines! It is nice to see someone taking the time not to mention the considerable effort and money to run such a venture! You must love every minute (well nearly)!!

Yes I reckon Chances is one of my favourite machines and it so long since I have seen one to play, think the last time was at a travelling funfair and it was in a sorry state really. I do love the MPU3's but also the later models hence my buying Thunderbirds and Cops & Robbers although the latter is a club machine.

I will definately be paying your arcade a visit hopefully in the New Year whilst off work, if not then will have to be easter. In the meantime I will be keeping my eyes peeled for maybe another machine for my fledgling collection, like you say on your website though the classics are really hard to find and not keen on e-bay as think can easily get ripped off.

Thanks again mr P and I wish you every success with your working museum.

Regards

Thanks for the welcome,  I must be showing my age then with the old Chances Unlimited and Line Up then !! :D
I also liked playing the machines you refer to, Andy CapP etc, Road hog etc they were (and still are) good games, especially when you compare them to the rubbish that is out there now, I rarely play on the machines in the Pubs now as they just seem to clean 20 quid off you within a matter of a couple of minutes! Have to admit super 7 I have never played the Electrocoin Pyramid! I played a lot of the early project stuff 7 heavens, jokers wild etc and my favourite the one with the prize wheel you used to get some good runs on that remember winning about 80 quid on one in an aracde in torquay and it paid out 1 pound tokens was many years ago though! I was thinking of treating myself to the hyper viper that was recently on e-bay but was worried that with it being so old i reckon it would be breaking down all the time and i think it was on old coins, also like the look of cash falls, but in the end I have bought a classic club cops and robbers! to join my Barcrest Thunderbirds! Am looking forward to playing them over the Christmas Holidays and then maybe a first trip to Mr Ps to sample all the classics!

Thanks again for the welcome

Hi, I have just joined this forum. I too miss the classic fruities in the arcades, I remember the days when used to play Chances Unlimited, Line Up, Snappy Viper etc fondly. My parents used to take me and my brother on UK weekend breaks and the hotels always had a games room or a fruitie somewhere and thats where we used to play all old classics.

I bought my own fruit machine about 6 years ago now, and reckon I am going to treat myself to another one for Christmas just been purusing some sites! I dont have a games room as such have just turned my dining room into sort of one with a card table for my poker nights!

I hope to visit Mr P's maybe over the new year period with my brother to play some reel classics! Can you let me know of your opening times for New Year.

Thanks & Just wanted to say admire the efforts you make Mr P and all of the other fruit nuts on here.

Regards
