Ford Gets The Ball Rolling With Mustang Pinball Machines In Chicago

Hot News

John is a full-time automotive blogger who digs cars, but also spends a disturbing amount of time watching and reading about movies. His first car was a maroon 1993 Buick Skylark which, after a solid seven-year run, was laid to rest in August of 2013.

Ford had their new 2015 Mustang out at the Chicago Auto Show, but they seemed to be focused more on unveiling their new line of Ford Mustang Pinball machines.

Surprisingly they broke the auto show mold by bringing in a guy, rather than a gorgeous model to promote the new machines. Champion pinball wizard Zach Sharpe was there to set the high score and challenge anyone to beat it, but the sheer determination in his eyes was enough to keep me from even attempting to best him.


Chicago Auto Show attendee Keith Yex attempts to take down the wizard.

Seriously, saying that this guy is into pinball is an understatement. Despite having cameras and lights directly in his face, dude just locked in and owned it. Around the time that I walked away his score was around 800,000,000, which was goddamn impressive compared to the embarrassingly low scores of those willing to take on the champ.

It’s not likely that anyone is going to take this guy down, but the five who come the closest will be awarded prizes. I have no idea of what those prizes are, so I’m just going to leave it at that.

In addition to the machines unveiled at the auto show, Ford and Stern Pinball will be adding a couple of different versions to the series which will include a game based on the original 1964 Mustang as well as three of the performance-tuned Boss models.

All of the Ford Mustang Pinball machines will be released slowly throughout the year. For more information on the pinball machines check out the video below.
