You know, I have got to stop watching Bowen's PAPA videos. They are getting me in so much trouble D:.
The damage this time: a B/W Corvette!
Now, let me just say this: Corvette has been a bit of a unicorn for me for a couple years now. There's something about it I have always loved. Excellent PF toys with the LT5 engine and dragstrip, beautiful use of the color palette, fun shots, good flow, solid callouts - just an overall win to me.
I am a huge sucker for the guitar music in this game; it is very reminiscent of Car and Driver music from the early 90s whenever a new car would debut on the show.
I mean really, this game just doesn't look 20 years old to me. The only thing that really dates it is the fact the model years conclude at 93-94, but you know what, that doesn't really bother me. To me, this is miles ahead of any other car theme pin out there. Mustang could learn a LOT from this game, and they had 19 more years to do so ....o_O
So, I was blessed enough to purchase this machine from fellow Pinsider, PinB. Super-nice guy, very down to earth and a pleasure to converse pinbits from war stories and past purchases to lessons learned and future plans ahead. Outstanding examples of pins in his collection, and he gave me a VERY fair price on this pin - $2500 for those of you wanting to know.
So what did I get for $2500? Well, first an absolutely stellar example of Corvette. Everything on the PF was in super nice shape. Main plastic ramp is flawless - no cracks or fogging at all. LT5 engine runs solidly, drag strip works 100%, and zero credit dots.
Also, cabinet art is in spectacular shape with zero flipper button wear. Very minor scratches on the left side of the backbox art, but hey, who is going to see that?
Also, got an external Polk subwoofer as well as a WrongProductions glare guard. Pin was also fully decked out in CT LEDs including the flashers.
Took a nice 4.5 hr drive each way, and the drive was pretty easy with my wife keeping me company. PinB was absolutely outstanding to work with on every level. Buy with super confidence; he is a 5/5 seller.
Already fixed the "8x" light; it just had to be tweaked after going up the stairs. Got two lights on the dragstrip Christmas tree to fix really quickly, but other than that - beautiful example of Corvette. Looks great in the room with the others !!!
We're up to 5 now o_O!!!!!
