STRATO-FLITEI

 

I bought this Strato Flite at the Chicago Expo2000 show. It wasn't working, but I could see that everything was there and it was in good shape. The only problems were with the resetting of the score wheels. Pretty standard stuff - Thank God for morons who don't know how to fix these games so we can still get pretty good deals. The game is now on high tap, I rebuilt the pop bumpers and it plays really fast.

 

It looked great next to the Skylab. When I bought it, I figured I would fix it up and then sell it. After playing it, I was sure  it would be a keeper.

My friend Steve wanted it from the day I put it downstairs.  February 8, 2003 was a sad day at my house.  I finally caved in and sold it to him.  I needed the space.  Also, I needed the money for a Grand Prix and as a start towards a pool table fund.  Before I sold it, I had it in between a Space Mission and Skylab.  The 3 games looked nice together.  Click Here to see my Space Theme Group Picture.

I also sold Steve a shopped Pat Hand and an Aztec that needed restoration.  Someday, Steve claims the Aztec will actually be plugged in and restored.  It was one of the 5 games we brought back May 13, 2001 from Gene's Auction in the Pontiac Montana Mini-van.   He bought it right out of the back of the van.  I never even had it in the house.  He immediately purchased a new rubber kit.   It's been almost 2 years now and it is in about 200 pieces in his workshop.  He is making progress slowly but surely.  If he is lucky, he might be able to put those rubbers on before they need to be replaced due to age!

Here is a picture showing Steve's two working games. He was drinking Labatts Blue when he took the picture.  That's why the Strato-Flite looks like it might tip over.  You can see one of his campaign signs in the background.  We were all hoping he would win so we could call him Sheriff Steve, but he was soundly whipped.  At least he has some cool signs to show his grandkids.  They will look nice hanging on the walls too.
