I bought my Congo around 2004, when it was getting a lot of hate on RGP. I almost sold it due to all the negativity, but my family talked me into keeping it. I have about $2200 into it with new ramps, plastics and playfield window. I'll never sell it because it makes great temporary-trade bait, and it has a completely unique layout. When you're hitting your shots, Congo flows like melted butter. It makes me sad to see so many people dressing theirs up with colored GI and ugly translites. That's what's jacking the average price up. Any example over $3500 should at least come with new ramps - the Pinball Inc. ramps are twice as thick.
