nice fixer upper WhiteWater
Holy cr@p~!~! That's about the worst I've ever seen. I love it when he says "It will require cleaning, parts, knowledge, determination, time, and several cold ones to complete this transformation for use " ....and that's an understatement.
Well its up over $200 now with 13 bids, so there obviously people wanting it! Sad to see a pin in this condition. I dont see the seller trying to "burn " anyone, or has he misrepresented it in any way. I dont think it's worth over $200 though, but it's got folks bidding on it! I'd take the PF and clean it a bit and hang it on my wall in the gameroom.

I have seen (looked at) many of their auctions and sometimes wish I was closer. They do seem to be right out there in the open listing all of the details and/or especially flaws. I hold that kind of business practice in high regards!
Most sellers try to hide the fact that the Pin has pf wear or cab fade even though the price doesn't reflect it.
not worth it, look how rusty all the crap is boards are trashed i am sure
maybe buy it and have the guy take all boards out and send em to you but no way worth the shipping the machine via freight
OMG - 18 bids and it's already over $500!! ....I would have bet my life that nobody would pay over $200 for a pin in that shape. I must really not have any idea how valuable that title is.
wow cab is shot! it will cost less money to get a new cab.
my consern would be the playfield, did the water got to it, if so, must be warped.
boards, parts etc... but for $500+... nope.
Little Novus and leave the moving straps on it to keep the playfield inside the cabinet.
Then repost it for 12,500 with BIN 25,000 as ground up restoration. You could also paint it in camo and say hand painted.
I cannot believe that pile of parts is at $500 in bids.
