It was long ago and far away, and it was so much better than it is today...

Penny Pusher, very tempting...

At one of the junk shops in town today I ran smack dab into something that was almost too good to pass up: an Crompton's Rock 'n ROll arcade penny pusher.  And the price ($30) was, well, a steal to be honest, even if its (probably) not in working shape.  However its size pretty much rules out adding it to the Archive; I don't really have any space (that's not, you know, in the middle of the house) that I could store and/or work on this, so I guess some other lucky jerk will wind up with it.

Crompton's has been in the arcade bidness since 1947, although I haven't been able to determine if they're still at it or not (their website isn't working, for what that's worth).  I guess I could make a trip out to Kent next time I'm in the UK...
