Time to finally let it go and move into other projects. Most of you saw the restoration on here or at Allentown. It will be greatly missed.

ebay.com link » Fully Restored Williams Taxi Pinball Machine

Never can figure out where to price something like this so the best way I think is to let the market tell me what its worth. 1$ No reserve auction. Everyone who asked me about buying it now is your chance

All the info about it is in the ebay ad. Feel free to let me know if anyone needs to come see it.

Here is the restoration thread:

Jim,
We are not worthy.As I restore two of these I know exactly where the bottom line should be. Best of luck .

Good luck with it Jim. You did a beautiful job on that machine.

I started calculating that "bottom line" and quickly stopped when I reached a certain point. Never mind labor. I stopped keeping track of that with high speed. That had a playfield I had to redo before CPR made them and I had over 140 hours into it. Never could factor that into the cost! I'd be thrilled to hit that bottom line. I just love doing these. Can't help myself.

Wish I didn't have so many irons already in the fire, Jim. That is one fantastic looking machine.

#10 5 years ago

Well one of your irons in the fire is in my hands righ now craig and you can't buy all my restoresLooking to get the playfield prepped for clear over the holidays. Taking a break from the cabinet right now.

Ok so talking with a few friends and they are trying to figure out where this auctioion ends. How about we have some fun with this and turn this into a contest.

Closest person to the ending price next thursday gets a 10$ gift card to titan pinball. One guess per person per household. No price is right rules. May not be legal in all 50 states. Canada stay home ;D

Post your guesses here

Thinking in the $4k - $4.5k range.

#21 5 years ago

Saw it at Allentown. Quite an eye catcher.

$5675

That's cheating. You need to list an exact price

-Jim

#26 5 years ago

$4,465

#27 5 years ago

This machine is a piece of art. Got to play it at Allentown. I hope my Taxi turns out half as nice as this one.

#28 5 years ago

$6794

And worth every damn penny!

I just want to say that, I saw and played this at Allentown and it was BEYOND belief! This is restored to absolute CQ. It would've made Python proud and brought a tear to his eye had he seen it. (NOT joking) It was one of the real stars of the show. It played fast and flawless. Gorgeous in every regard. Whoever snags this is getting a serious piece of eye candy. Needless to say, you may not be seeing Jim around this holiday season as I plan on having him committed for selling this.

GLWTS brothah.

As for price guess...$10K by Christmas! Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

My guess is 3610.

#34 5 years ago

4780

#37 5 years ago

Though I think it should sell for more, my guess is $3750

#38 5 years ago

$4900 (uneducated guess)

#39 5 years ago

$4,950

#40 5 years ago

I know what I sold it to Jim for...I'm gonna just guess it's going to bring more than that. Move the decimal point to the right a few spots
