I'm assuming you mean the famous Spark Plug cartoon horse?

My 1935 Neontact
by PAMCO, with scoring in neon letters! The idea being to complete a score in numbers and then be paid for that amount by the operator. Only two known examples, I sold to a museum in Belgium a few years ago. Runs on batteries.

Selling to a museum was an excellent choice, it's quite the piece to show off!

Thought you'd like to see my sympathetic renovation of a 1930s Genco Spitfire Pintable. I bought it for around £350 at the Elephant House Auctions back in 2016 and it remained in my garage for the next four years at which point I thought I'd sell it as I didn't have a great deal of time on my hands. Only offered a £200 for it, so thought, when lock down was on, I'd have a play around with the electrics and see if I could get it working again... Glad I did, here's my Mrs showing the machine off today. Enjoy!



I took the glass off for the video, as it was quite glarey with it on.

Lovely looking machine. Are they the original type balls?
