    Seriously, seen a few collector quality machines popup on the market last couple of weeks right at the time when property and income taxes are due. Don't know about you guys but I'm cash poor right now. Arrrg, does all the good stuff come up at the worst times? Any one else notice this?

    Just venting...

    Another problem is when you buy a pin long distance and the next week the same machine comes up for sale in your backyard.

    This is 100% absolutly correct with me also. And to add to that, I usually want to sell something at the worse time in the market and can't get what it's worth. Its a vicious cycle.

    maybe they're selling these nice CQ games right now for exactly this reason
