Personal Grail Conquest: Payphone. Yep. :D

Bought one of these with my stimulus check.  I'm fortunate enough to still be employed as I work for the city.

I'm super stoked.  I can't wait. :D

New Old Stock payphone from 1985.  There're even additional parts and upgrades for that particular model on eBay.  It has the (apparently) rarer 1/2 size key pad, but I might pick up a full-size key pad as that's the type we had here in California.  Would love to pick up some old Pacific Bell branding stuff, hopefully a coin box door and a sticker. :)

Price seemed nice compared to the others out on eBay.  They also seem to be selling pretty quick.

Forgot to mention there're all sorts of adapters and what not to get it working, even with a cell phone.

I thought that home, rotary phones were cool to pick up, but these are WAY better.  VeryNice!

@Trash80toHP_Mini  Not quite yet.  I do have three arcades:  Joust, Centipede, and Defender.  Pinballs are expensive and difficult to repair unless you know what you're doing.

Got Pinball Machine next to a bit of bare wall? LOVE IT! :approve:
That is funny, I actually do! Restored my Firepower about three years ago! That plus my Street Fighter II are all I have beside the Mac collection.

@olePigeon The Musée Mécanique up in SF's Pier 45 seems like a place you'd like?

It's been awhile since I was there last (I remember first seeing it on my 11th birthday when it was under the Cliff House), but it had a section of 1980's era arcade games that seems like it'd be of interest to you.
