hello
I'm Lionel from Paris
I'm Bally 79' owner and I 've seen the restoration of Dolly Parton EDP2508 by
new forest pinball
it's really a big challenge started because personally I only worked on the electronics of mine EDP6837 (just restore the Apron and coin door)
the playfield was in exceptional condition of conservation.

I will follow this epic work with a lot of interest...

My French is very rusty.....

Mais quand j'avais 16 ans j'ai joué Banzai Run pour la première fois à St Laurent du Pont, près du Grenoble

I did 2x French exchanges when I was at secondary school, in 1987 and 1988.

About 30 of us went to St Laurent du Pont for two weeks and we stayed with French children our age. Then about 30 of them came and stayed with us.

Really great times. Fantastic to get away from home, to a foreign land, with your friends. A real sense of camaraderie developed between all the kids. The first time I went skiing.

One girl from my school hit the jackpot as she was taken skiing for a week, then went to a Frankie Goes to Hollywood concert.

Nowadays folk are scared of paedophiles so French exchanges like these are in decline.

Absolute madness and a real shame in my opinion.
