So up for sale goes my Junk Yard. It is in great shape (I just finished shopping it), plays perfectly, great flow and tons of fun. Playfield is super nice. Typical wear around the sewer is repaired and covered by a Cliffy. Cabinet has been touched up in places. Plastic protector set installed.

This one is loaded with fun mods:

Tires, Rims, Toilet, TV, Toaster, Cuckoo Clock, and custom painted VW van.

Located in Indianapolis, IN. $3100

Picture folder at: http://s1373.photobucket.com/user/rcbarker/library/Junkyard

I'm happy to take additional pictures for interested parties.

I'm not interested in trades at this point and I'd rather not ship (but I will, if necessary. Buyer to make all arrangements).

Priced right. If you were east coast this would have me obsessing getting it back.

My son is upset that it is for sale. He loves the shoot the dog (with toast) video mode. He's 4... he'll get over it.

Hmmm......Do you ever make it to the Milwaukee area?

#10 4 years ago

I don't sorry.. but it is about a 4 hr drive... not too bad. Most of us have gone longer for a pin.

I didn't say I wouldn't ship.. I just would prefer a local deal.. It seems cleaner. Everyone knows what they are getting. Buyer gets to personally inspect, seller gets cash, shipping charges don't get in the way.

If you want it and shipping is necessary, we can make it happen. PM me. Let me know the particulars of what you have in mind.

Ok , but n the PM I Will have to take U thru my Low-ball speech , mainly to get the price down so ship-n won't spOil the deal , it has been listed for 2-weeks and i Didn't C the word ( Firm ) anywhere N yr Posts ..

Ahh, yes... well then I'll have to respond that I've had multiple offers, just none that get it done. Certainly, when the ad was freshly posted, I was content to let it sit and see what comes in rather than immediately discounting. Tire-kickers have come in and made non-lowball offers (and a lowball offer), but have retreated to just lurk and watch I suppose.

That said, the price isn't firm.. it has a bit of wiggle room. Not much room, but it is there.

I'm wondering what's considered a "lowball" offer seeing as how I know what you purchased this machine for not all that long ago.

Not to sound like an a$$, but I don't think a flipper should be offended by "lowball" offers near what they paid.

All that being said, I know this machine and it is a very nice JY that plays very well.

Good luck with your sale.

Lowball is a few hundred less than what I paid for it a year ago. The offers near what I paid for it were the "non-lowball" offers. And I never said I was offended (I wasn't), just noting the action. My note above was intended to be lively banter with BR.

I'd disagree with your assessment that I'm a flipper. I bought my first machine around 2002 and I've only sold one machine in my entire life. This JY would be the second. The first was an I500 I bought at the request of a friend, did a complete refurb, and then sold it for exactly what I put into it (hard costs) with no profit for my time. See the Indy 500 owners thread for some pics and detail on that refurb if you care. Similarly, I'm attempting to sell this one for what I have in it. So, in actuality, this is the first machine I've ever sold that I bought for myself.

To me, a flipper is someone who tries to buy cheap, puts no work into a machine and tries to upcharge without bettering the machine at all. If I had put no money into the game, I'd be asking exactly what I paid for it.

I bought and put in cliffys, a plastic protector set, the latest ROM's, a NOS plastic from Australia $$, cabinet leg protectors, new rubber set, new flipper bat, new decal for a standup, a switch or two, everything else that goes into a typical shop job...

So, I'm not offended by any of the offers I've received.

HOW DARE YOU, SIR!

I'll add that I'll be driving from Indy to Grand Rapids, MI on either November 25th or 26th. Thus, I could deliver along that route.

I typically take I-69 to I-94 to 131, but could go up I-65 instead or take 31 through Indiana.

I'd need a reasonable deposit in hand do to so.

(I know what you purchased this machine for not long ago). Ha! Ha! Ha! Are you really serious? Ha! Ha! Man I can't beleive some people! It's worth what today's market says it worth,what he paid doesn't mean dick. So if I over pay for a machine it's worth more later when I go to sell just because I overpaid? I'd just like to know how all that works because I won't feel bad about overpaying if I can get more out of a game for that reason. Ed

A deal is now pending. I have a deposit and will be delivering it on my trip.

Thanks for all the interest.
