I love the interwebs... Somebody always knows about any obscure thing you can think of!

Cool to see another "pinhead" on here! I also have a Bally Corvette in my pinball collection. Did you go to The White Rose Gameroom Show at York this year?

When you look at the close-up details of this machine, it is very obvious that whoever did the artwork and renditions was a total Corvette FANATIC!

Usually, these days, we expect a 'water-downed' version and less-than-promised, because it's 'good enough', but not these guys! The faithfulness rendered to the C1's, C2's, C3's and the C4's is amazing!


Check out the factory LT-1, with the correct hood and just as nice, is the Callaway twin-turbo C4 right behind it! How friggin' cool is that, even the scoops and front bumper are correct!



90's LT5 motor done correctly!



I own a 95' C4 in Torch Red and know it well. They got the shape exactly right, including the wide square exhaust tips!



Hell, look real close and they squeezed the factory C4 Mobil 1 Corvette Challenge race cars in the top corner!




So who's gonna win this race? The GS or the ZR-1?



Awesome details!

Thanks for the awesome basis for a news post! Made my day...

I can't decide what I like better in this picture: The game, the C4, or the model's "mom jeans"...
