Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Hadn't thought of comparing pinball to cars before

IMO a NIB pinball holds it value a whole lot better than a new car. I had a NIB GB for over 2 years, it had 1750 plays on it when I sold it. I paid 5100.00 for it, sold it for 4000.00, never had any repairs or maintenance costs, so I ended up not only saving the quarters from going to a location, also the gas, etc. to get to a location. And the closest location to me is about 40 minutes or longer in bad traffic.

Pinball is actually helping me financially. I have became a whole lot more frugal with everything else. I used to eat out lunch and dinner 7 days a week for average of 20.00 a day(140.00 a week). Now I go out one night a week for dinner, and spend 40.00 or less for a entire week. I am saving 5200.00 a year alone on food for pinball. I rarely eat steak anymore, but I have never ate noodles either.

When I paid 5100 for GB and sold it after 1750 plays for 4000, my friend told me I had not lost anything, because I would have not had that game anyway if I had of spent the money eating out.
