I would be in for a set. With these, there is motivation to restore my play field.

What about back glasses, Tractor Doc? And talk about those?

Many ended up here in the PNW it seems, I've had three over the last decade. Last one was a blue cab that I traded to blairally who then passed it on to a pinhead in So Cal, the PF on that one was gorgeous and nearly mint! Kinda bummed I let it go, I know of another about 1/2 mile from me, sold it to my buddy 5 yrs ago and now I can't get him to sell it back! LOL, pinball.

Quoted from koji:

I suspect there will be a Cheetah for sale soon at John's Jukes (flippers.com), near Vancouver, BC. He has been working on one for a long time. I'm curious to see what he prices his at. Maybe send him a message if you want it and are willing to pay store $ + shipping.
I traded my original Cheetah to Alex at Ice Box arcade in Seattle (Really didn't want to sell it, but he wanted it, and made me an offer I could not refuse), and as some kind of stroke of good fortune, a friend found me another Cheetah locally (I was telling everyone how sad I was), so here I am.. back in the game
I know of one other in BC at another collectors place.
Pretty odd how so many ended up in BC. I think for a while it was undervalued because of the left lane bonus exploit. Honestly, I think this has a lot to do with setup tho, as if you have snappy flippers and a good angle, you can make the shot very difficult to achieve. Still, the tournament rom 'fixes' this, and thus the game seems to be in crazy demand.

Cheetah Plastics are boxed up and on their way to Stu.

No serious talk on back glasses. If the plastic sets sell with some degree of success I bet they would give the glass (and maybe the playfield) a closer look. I'm half scared to ship my nice backglass anyway -- with my luck it will arrive in a 1000 pieces.

That is pretty exciting about the plastics.

Thank you!

I’m tempted to buy a plastics set & I don’t even own the game yet.

All this time I thought buying parts for games I don't yet have was just a normal part of the hobby. . . does this mean I've been wrong?

From a serious standpoint, if/when the plastics become available I have a feeling the more CPR sells the more interest they could have in taking on the backglass and playfields. No evidence to support that, just a theory.

This is why I stay poor. Stocking up when I can instead of waiting until they are not available again.

You may be poor financially, but at least you are rich in stuff!

And I need to build a storage shed for my growing pile of stuff
