When there were far fewer people around, far fewer laws and regulations, when the legal speed limit was 75 mph, when gas was cheap, when driving was a pleasure, if you owned a hot machine you could point the grill down an empty road and go!


I have a good long essay called "Tilt" in the May issue of the GoodGuys Gazette. It's about Sam Mullen and Bob Knowles, a car crash and the best pinball game ever.  Includes Dorothy McCullough Lee, the first female mayor of Portland (known for her hats), and her attempt to wipe out vice and pinball games.
