Quoted from Playdium:

My two favorite Gottlieb machines.[quoted image]

Looks like you found your Abra Ca Dabra!

#11652 1 year ago

So lucky. I finally was able to play an abra ca dabra in Vegas after Drooling over 100s of pics of it on Pinside. I really wish a company had the balls to re-release classic EMs. I’d love to buy a repro Abra-Ca-Dabra.

Melody joined the collection yesterday.

Ignore the hideous brown paint-job (that will get removed in lieu of a beautiful repaint), and instead look at the nearly perfect glass and very nice playfield!

This one will clean up beautifully and is a keeper!

Jethro got me going.....
Heres a picture of my HURDY GURDY I just started painting over this past weekend. It came to me from the State of Ohio where it was owned by a Pittsburg Steelers fan, [go figger]!
The Red and black were really really stubborn so I can totally relate to your expierience with a painted all black game.
Amazing what we do for the love of the hobby.
Also a couple pictures of a Straight SHooter I picked up a few months ago that I havent been able to work on yet. Has a couple of minor issues but once committed to getting it running correctly Ill probably let it go as the old space issue is accute at my place. Besides, there was room in the post so Ill throw up the pictures!

sweet, did you get someone to restore a PF for ya?

Quoted from woody76:

No I got a second parts machine that is missing a lot of parts in the back box including the dancing guy. It does have a really nice playfield though. I'm just going to clean it up, shop it out completely and swap it in.

This stuff is no joke. Feels like the handles were dipped in rubber.

MRM_4. - your work is first class! The Mata Hari, then this one ...great job ! I need to send a few of mine over for refurb. I’ve mainly been getting mine to work. Clean them up and away they go. The complete rebuilds are amazing ! Keep it up!

#11688 1 year ago

What are the thoughts on Big Hit? When I go to our arcade I always am drawn to it but perhaps I haven’t just tried enough of the EMs?

Quoted from pghpinfan:

Best of the baseball pins IMO. Good Player, can't go wrong. Guaranteed to entertain. Just my 2 cents.

Just picked up a Miss-O, I don't know anything about the gameplay but the $200 pricetag was impossible to resist. The backglass appears to be in great shape and the pf isn't too bad.

Picked these up Top Score Mustang from a fellow 'pinsider' noquarters a few weeks ago. Great transaction. The 6 hour van ride home was a little cramped with these 2 beauties, a copilot and 2 German Shepherds. But the trip was well worth it.
