William's Klondike

A Work of Art

Around 20 years ago, I received an old Williams Klondike machine in settlement of a debt. It sat in storage all these years, needing minor repairs, until Hurricane Michael caused some major damage. I decided that I should either get the machine repaired, or just throw it away. When I started looking into repairing this vintage pinball machine, one name kept coming up, over and over – Joe Ruggiero of Pinball Restorations. We decided to take our machine to Joe and see if he could repair it. But then 2 things happened. First, we saw all the beautiful restored machines in his shop; and second, we found out that a total restoration was only a little bit more than a repair job. We decided to go for the total restoration, and we are so glad we did. Not only can I enjoy playing my machine, but also it is a true work of art. The restoration was complete, and meticulous. I couldn’t be happier.
