The New Year is here and I am about 5 days away from posting the list of the first 14 machines we will be selling with prices and a full description of each. Since regardless of what ideas I had to try to be "fair" received a ton of negative fallout I have decided to just do first come first served. At 7 PM on Thursday night I will post the full list of machines, conditions, and prices but since we are trying to move a good many machines through a small space fairly quickly I need to get a head start somehow.
So if anyone local is interested in having first shot at these machines before I post complete information about them and wants to stop by Thursday while we are finishing up getting stuff ready to sell I would be more than happy to get together with them ahead of time. From NOON till 9 PM Thursday I will be making appointments for the first few people if anyone is interested in running over to see machines prior to us releasing prices publicly. Machines will be for sale during that time so bring cash along. I will be setting up appointments in the order emails are received. But if you are first to email and you can't be here until 5 PM and someone else can be here at noon they will be first in line. I need to get some of this stuff sold quickly to make room for additional machines.
I can't post exact prices until we assess each machine and that process will not even start until sometime later in the day Tuesday (due to Holiday guest still being here). But at this point I can say over 1/2 the machines will be priced below either Boston Pinball or Pinside average price for that title. And only Caveman will be priced much over the average selling price for a title because of what I have invested in that machine and the fact the monitor is working.
I can only have one person (or group of people) here at a time due to the neighborhood we live in. So appointments will be spaced out 2 to 3 hours apart to keep things from getting crazy. So depending on interest I and times people are available Thursday will be limited to about 4 or 5 people total.
Friday I'll be doing the same thing from 9AM to 9PM. I'll try to update what is still for sale as quickly as possible but if you are driving more than a few miles I recommend you contact me via email just before you hit the road to make sure machine or machines you are interested in are still available.
I don't have a clue how fast machines will sell or what the interest level will be once we post all the information about these but I do know I need to either sell these machines fairly quickly or get them moved to storage to make room for the next group of machines. I just don't have the time to schedule appointments for each specific machine. As things progress I am sure I will figure out better ways of doing things but for now I just need to get things started!
Sorry for yet another long email without PICTURES!
First group of machines with some description was in the original post about 3 pages from the end. So for this post I am just going to list machines to save some typing.
MACHINES INCLUDE: 4 Square (the only EM in this lot), High Speed (playfield wear), Bram Stoker's Dracula (major project), Small Puck Shuffle Alley (1954 League), Strange Science (better than average), Secret Service (nice overall), Caveman (monitor works), Fire (Players Quality), Gold Wings (shopped & ready to play), El Dorado City of Gold (extremely nice), Checkpoint (very nice), Nitro Ground Shaker (players quality), Firepower (working & shopped), and a super nice Road Kings.
Let the BASH FEST begin!
