|Pete's Excellent Home Page came through in a big way on
January 15, 2004. I received an e-mail from someone wanting to sell
a Target Alpha that had been in their basement since 1984. They were
moving to Florida. She found me through a Google Search for Target
Small world . . . it turns out they only lived about 35 minutes from my
house. My van was not available because it was having some
test parts installed at work. Hopefully those parts will work!
Dave drove me over in his Honda Odyssey with the Garmin Street Pilot III
giving the directions.
I knew the minute I saw the game that I would buy it. After a 1
minute negotiation, we took it apart and carried it out. We had to
drive back in a snowstorm, but it was well worth the trip. This game
will be sold to my friend Joe who sold it to someone else after 2 years.
I wonder where it is today.
Of all the Gottlieb EM games I have ever played, this has got to be my
favorite. The only way I would ever part with mine would be if I
could get my hands on a Gold Strike or El Dorado. I'm pretty sure
the drop targets on those pop back up after they are all knocked down so
you can shoot at them again.
Here is the one I kept: Pete's
Here are pictures of when I had 2
