Item description

Well I have spent many months on this restore. You wont find a better example of a more beautiful solid machine.
To many parts and labor hours to mention them all. Here is a few.

*Air brush graphics on play field and cabinet.
*Automotive clear coat on all.
*Powder coating on many parts for a unique look to the machine.
*Full LED lighting. just to mention a few.

I have included a few pics of the start.

Notice the latex paint on the upper play field from previous owner trying to .......

I do have an EVIL KNIEVEL PINBALL that is near completion.
I have few Harley Davidson dealers that have an interest in it first.

Just give me a call If you have interest, or just want to talk pinball!
Thanks, Tim 2 one [phone number removed]

If I was driving to TPF I'd be all over this. Anyone in from Michigan making the drive?

#4 1 year ago

It would help if you put up more close up pics of everything without pin on.

#5 1 year ago

this is one of the most confusing ads I have ever seen on pinside. How far are you from Frisco?

#6 1 year ago

5500 wow that's a lot of uber rides, post some pics of that playfield. Glws

#7 1 year ago

You put a price like that on a Taxi, you are going to need WAY more pics.

#8 1 year ago

Could we see more pics of the finished project??

#9 1 year ago

Today in "Newbies posting wild FS ads on Pinside without good pics or timely responses".

#10 1 year ago

Worst FS ad of the week.

"Full Restoration MUST SEE" but I won't show you.

#12 1 year ago

For that kinda loot I’d think you’d redo the top of the head too.

#13 1 year ago

Pretty sure the HEP Taxi will be nicer.

Both of Chris's Taxi restos looked better than this. This one looks nice, but nowhere near Chris's

#15 1 year ago

I'm baffled by sticking toys on top of a machine... I just don't get it. Whatever floats your boat, I guess.

5500 for a taxi................geezz people have lost their minds.

#17 1 year ago

If you pass on this taxi, I'd sell mine, let's say $4,200? I don't have any pics but I draw very well

Seriously though, OP, more pics.

#18 1 year ago

forget the before pictures , that's like showing a tree that they made the plywood cabinet out of . more pictures please !

How much would the HEP Taxi go for?

#20 1 year ago
Quoted from Mike_J:

10 or 11K? Or am I way off people?

#21 1 year ago

Could be either way - a newb who doesn't really wanna show his artwork, or an elite pro who's got tons of eyeballs for his big reveal!

There was a super nice Taxi at TPF a few years ago. It was the nicest one I have ever seen. I think it went for $8K.

#23 1 year ago

After the big reveal, I bet the owner of the Taxi on the HEP thread immediately sends it off to this guy for a "FULL RESTORATION"

Wow.

I’m willing to accept that someone is capable of a full HEP-like restore. But you gotta show the pics!

#27 1 year ago
Quoted from woody76:

It won best of show. It was a HEP type restore.

Think pinsider gov did that Taxi?

I think it was him. It was beautiful and played fantastic.

#29 1 year ago

Marilyn or Lola?

#30 1 year ago

Dang. While I agree this ad needs more pics, some of you guys can just be brutal. What do you care if the guy posts a bad ad? Simply ask for more pics. Wow

Yeah, OP sounds like a REAL monster haha. Tough crowd, jeez!

"EVIL KNIEVEL PINBALL" um, ok...

#34 1 year ago

I agree that people may be a little harsh here but I also think, including myself, seeing prices like this is getting rediculous. This is the type of ad that people who Google and see, then think wow! The Taxi in moms basement is worth a fortune. Then people with Taxi's think, Hmmmm, maybe I'll lost mine at 3000. It's just getting out of hand.

#35 1 year ago

Or when you claim it's the "nicest one you'll ever see" and there's a HEP thread about a Taxi restoration going on at the same time.

Played as good as it looked, too.
