MotorCity Pinball
Playing Pinball in Detroit.

Unfortunately the Motor City Pinball project never got off the ground. But don't worry, there's another pinball project in the Motor City that has started. That would be the Detroit Tilt Town Pinball Museum, a pinball club/museum, which is located in Novi, Michigan (a western suburb of Detroit.) From vintage EM (Electro-Mechanical) pinballs of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, to the great Solid State Dot Matrix pinballs of the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s, Motor City Pinball was to be the place to come play. But the project has morphed into Tilt Town.

MCP Curators and History:
MCP is born from the sweat and dreams of Clay Harrell and Marty Lustig. Clay exclusively handles the EM (Electro-Mechanical) game side of the shop, and shares responsibility for the SS (solid state) game side with Marty. How did these guys come together with this idea? It started with the Detroit EM Pinball Club, which was a gang of Detroit pinball enthusiasts organized by Clay. The club used to have a 'clubhouse', but lost the lease. Looking for another place to organize, Marty volunteered his facility (which is a local pinball shop with games for sale.) But why not make it open to the public too? This was a good way to defer costs (especially during these stressful economic times.)
