Quoted from kklank:
I took a look at it. She had it priced at 2500 and when I got out there she said she had so much interest from other buyers that she wanted more than her asking price. Some dickhead from Minnesota said he would give her 3300 without even looking at it! There was wear on the Sanctum, a chunk taken out of the front of the cab, some dings on the backbox, and no keys to get into the pin! The rest of the playfield was nice. I said I would give her 2500 which was her asking price. She said she wanted to meet with another buyer and for me to wait and see what happened with the other buyer. I said I would pass. When I walked out there was another buyer(I think) waiting in the driveway. Just ridiculous. Glad I didnt buy it. Could have been more problems inside. Who knows right?
I'm the other buyer that she was waiting for and i did indeed pick up the Shadow, though i don't think i was the person you saw in the driveway. You are correct, the situation was ridiculous. She wanted us to offer more than $2500, and when i didn't, she told us that the guy who was just there offered $2600 (I honestly didn't believe her story at all, and I shook my head when i read that you offered $2500). In any case, I offered all my cash on hand which turned out to be $2625, contingent upon her finding the keys. She did eventually find the keys to the coin box but we never found the keys to the backbox, which was a shame because the backbox was bolted down to the main cab, and there was a lot of MacGuyvering that went into getting it folded down. All in all i think it took my buddy and i about 2 hours from the time we got there to get it out. Aside from some slight wear on the sanctum, corrosion on the brass plated wire ramps, and the cabinet dings, it's in great shape.
Side note, while we were there, i looked up the listing to remember what her name was and saw that she had re-posted the pin at $2900. If what she said about the guy from MN is true (who knows), I agree that he is a dickhead.
No hard feelings, i hope. Just thought you might enjoy hearing the rest of the story.
