Re: Looking forward....

Well, lockdown over, it is and it isn't. I guess it depends on your mindset and risk to yourself and others about whether you take the plunge and think it's back to normal. So it's your decision if it's really over; my mum is shielding and she's been advised in a few weeks time she can go out. She h...

Re: Another hideous bandit

That's so true. Talking of car names, this made me laugh. When I was as a teenage lad at school discovering girls some friends bought in some early glamour magazines, Fiesta, Escort and wondered if Ford chose their car model names from the magazines? I was really disappointed when Ford never made a ...

Re: Has the lockdown impaired people's senses?

I think it is a good time to sell if you have something you are not keen of. For the more fortunate who have been in lockdown and still being paid, many are sitting on a considerable pot having not spent anything. Ive seen many things other than coinops sell on ebay. way past what they are worth, a ...

Re: Sparing a thought for the amusement arcade owners

It's a terrible shame Jerry, I wish you well. I do live very close to Brighton and have done so since a child. So this is the end of the last vintage arcade in Brighton. I remember as far back to 1971 visiting the vintage machines with my dad on both piers and in the arches, where you are based, und...

Don't remember the 'Tuck Shop'.

Re: Sparing a thought for the amusement arcade owners

Is Swallow amusements the little one on Shanklin seafront, to the left of the cliff railway? I went there a few years back and played some great Bally four reelers, a Tooty Fruity and some old Brencos too. What a shame. Is there a link to the property anywhere with details, do they own the building ...

Re: Sparing a thought for the amusement arcade owners

With the paranoia surrounding handling money, paranoia in general where your local shops, Boots, Tesco etc. weren't taking any cash, only cards, I think for many the seed that handling coins/cash is damaging has been sown. I actually had to use a tenner this morning in Boots to pay for something - t...

Sparing a thought for the amusement arcade owners

In these difficult times of this god awful virus I'm really concerned about some of the small amusements out there who were just about turning a living running vintage coin ops in their arcades. I'm particularly worried about my local one in Beach Road Pagham. It was run by Dean and Joe and they've ...
