Quoted from CaptainNeo:
I got 2 people interested in it right now. One wants to know if someone can bring it to VFW with them.
One of these people is me. I'd be happy to get this game.
If anyone is willing to pick up from Neo and bring it over this way, I would be happy to kick in some gas money.
I would be able to take the game in Southwest Michigan, just off I-94, any time, including Friday of the VFW show.
I will be at the VFW show on Saturday. Driving over there early Saturday morning and coming back home Sunday morning. Happy to meet someone at VFW while there.
Quoted from ralphwiggum:
I will never donate money to Pinside under any circumstances. I have been in the *hobby* since 1999. I have received plenty of help through the years, and truly believe in paying it back. I don't care how many extra features Pinside tries to jam onto a screen, there is zero chance this place (or any place) survives without actual content (which comes from the user base, not from the designer). There are lots of pretty cars that don't have motors, you can't drive them though.
This is a reasonable, logical and well thought out comment. Thanks for your help along the way.
However, as someone who is much more likely to need help than to give help, I'm glad to donate a bit to keep the place running.
Quoted from Chitownpinball:
Man, its close to impossible to deal with any older gentlemen who still think prices are from the 2000's.
One trick is to tell 'em stories that don't go anywhere, like the time I caught the ferry over to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe, so, I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. "Give me five bees for a quarter," you'd say. Now, where were we? Oh yeah, the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones.
Quoted from AlexF:
The glass looks promising. Usually they reds are badly faded. Anyway $350 used to be about right for an unshopped EM. These days it's challenging to find anything worthwhile under $500.
Wonder if he would trade for a giant inflatable clown head?
Quoted from Whysnow:
cant be but a few hours round trip from you TBH. Go for it. That one appears to have a very nice glass.
That's Paul. Nice guy who knows pins. I bought one of my games from him and see him at shows now and then.
Garage is attached, but I don't think it's heated. Guessing that he has the backglass in the house.
Come over and visit the beach this weekend. Go home with a new game or two....

Quoted from balt:
I am very jealous of the person who picked up a $200 Meteor in McHenry last night off Craigslist. Christmas came early for someone!
Saw that also. Hope it was a legit deal for someone.
Also, anyone on here get the Ebay Grand Lizard that sold for $820 yesterday?
Was listed as not working, but looked to be in pretty good shape.
Quoted from newovad:
They want you to CALL 24/7. I'm pretty sure Mike has no idea he is selling pins on Craigslist.
Photos are all borrowed from Pinside.
Also, I might be missing something, but there doesn't seem to be any phone number associated with that ad.
So who knows what they are up to...........
Quoted from toyotaboy:
But does FB marketplace have pinball parts (too many to list) in algonquin? What about inflatable clowns? What about $150 cleopatra backglass that's been up there for about 8 years? What about a menagerie of pinballs, arcade games, and redemption games all in one stop shop in naperville?
And "Want to Buy" ads. Need lots of those.
Quoted from AndHart120:
Not sure how you can price something without knowing about it first.
You answer a pinball for sale ad.
The seller tells you it might not work and hasn't been turned on in years. The price is cheap.
Are you really going to see if you can get it running at the sellers place to raise the price, or load it up and check later?
Now say you want to flip the game. Post it the same way for a few bucks more, or add some valuable hours to it?
Anybody here get the Free non-working Barracora that was briefly on Chicago CL?
Looked like some damage to the cabinet. Maybe the head was yanked off without removing the bolts?
Could have looked worse.
