I'm thinking about going to the 2012 Pinfest in Allentown, PA. Its a bit of a drive for me around 3 hrs or so and I've never gone to one before so I don't know what to expect.
What I'm hoping to do is buy a pinball machine there, specifically a western themed 4P EM machine in playable condition. Ideally a Big Indian but others would do like a Bow & Arrow, etc. From the other folks that have gone/done the show. How is it from the perspective of finding a machine? Am I better off watching Mr. Pinball's for the right machine or is Pinfest a good place for buying a players machine. I'm not looking for high end restores but a good working machine. Also from the buying/availability perspective which day is better to do Fri or Sat?
