    Long time recreation player that finally took the plunge to start my own collection. I picked up Bride of Pinbot and Batman (Data East) yesterday. They are being refurbished right now and dilivered in a couple of weeks. Can't wait! I'm looking to start a home collection of about 5-7 machines.

    Next on the list is:
    Corvette - I know it's not the most popular but I love Corvettes and the game plays good to me.
    Medieval Madness - This one may take a while as they are just so much $$$. I've got a 2002 Mustang GT I'll be selling for it.

    Hoping to add more down the road too

    That's a heck of a plunge you've taken. Dive in to the deep end why don't you?

    Best of luck and welcome!

    Welcome to the club. I never thought of selling my car for a pin. I like that car.
    Sounds like you've got the sickness.
    Hope you get well soon and have fun.

    I hope that's a good thing and not something bad about the machines. Yikes... I'm new to this hobby and just bought 2 machines that I spend all my money on at the arcade anyways

    I figured that just having one would get old real quick so I saved up enough to get two nice ones to start with. Fun times ahead. So anxious to get them in.

    I just bought an 04 mystichrome cobra with only 14K miles on it. The dealer wouldn't give me what I wanted for the car so I figured I'd just keep it since it's paid off. I'm thinking I'll either make a trade with someone or sell it outright for the cash when I find the right machines.

    Pinball is another hobby I'm getting into. My wife isn't to happy as my hobbies seem to be the expensive ones. I love cars (3 mustangs, corvette and a hummer) as well as large RC boats.

    Welcome and congrats on the new pins!

    I like that you're trading Mustang for a MM, haha. My truck is nearing the end of it's life. I'm thinking of using it for minimal trade in value I should try to get a pinball machine off Craigslist with it.

    Trading pins and stangs must be a trend

    Would a WH2O be a 1.5 stang machine?

    +1 I've got my motorcycle for sale now, to help pay for my next pin

    I'd trade my car for a pin, but I don't really like EM games.

    #19 8 years ago

    think I'd trade my Xgf for a cool pin about now

    #20 8 years ago

    I traded a Honda 3 wheeler for a Black Knight. In the long run, it worked out very well.

    Welcome to Pinside! In the few weeks I've been here, I have learned a lot and have done a lot of work on my first pin myself. The folks here are very helpful and knowledgeable.
