    Hi guys,
    I know nothing about pinball machines but recently found these bits on the in laws barn whilst holidaying in France, my first encounter with them, my wife wants me to make one into a coffee table, but as I'm pulling bits off, it feels like I'm destroying something worth looking after.

    Are these worth anything to anyone?
    Can they be made good again?
    They are pretty damaged with rust and cobswebs but also really cool things.!
    Pink panther
    Skateboard one?
    And 2 x not sure!

    You never see a pink panther these days

    Quoted from mjg417:

    You never see a pink panther these days

    Indeed. The Pink Panther playfield is probably pretty rare at this point. I think they built 2,840 units, but I rarely see them nowadays. I wonder how many actually survived?

    Not that rare, I've got one that mice live in, is the one shown salvageable, would anyone want them? Or should I skip them?

    #5 3 years ago

    Do you have a picture of the skateboard playfield?

    #6 3 years ago

    To answer your question I would guess none of that stuff has any value at this point. Still cool to stumble upon.

    #7 3 years ago

    Yes, that the one my wife wants me to make into something else, so I started taking it apart

    #8 3 years ago

    I didn't think it would be of much monetary value, more interest really, I love some of the art work

    #9 3 years ago

    Definitely save them all. A lot of people would love to hang those on the wall of their game rooms, or they could be restored and put back into a machine. They have value.

    The wide one with the wizard in the middle is Genie. The other one is James Bond.

    if you dont want them I will take them if you can ship. DHL does good international shipments.

    Not sure I want to pay for expensive shipping and packing during my annual vacation! You are welcome to come in van though

    #13 3 years ago

    That is a skateball

    #14 3 years ago

    That Skateball playfield looks good.
    Someone will want to restore it and put it back in a machine.
