Any tips or certain things to look out for? Thanks!

Make sure the VUK's are stong enough. Check that the motor for the police lamp (topper) works. Also, that top right flipper needs to be strong enough to launch the ball up the ramp. Speaking of ramps - amke sure it's not cracked/broken. ...this in addition to the usual "make sure everything works".

What is VUK's? Yes check all that is mentioned, dont let it be a deal breaker though as those things can be fixed easily with replacement parts. I check the boards for bad hack jobs and battery leakage on the CPU. High Speed I have owned for 4 years now, my ramp is cracked and has be reenforced with fiberglass I bought it like that and has held up, but do need need to get a new one eventually. Post back up if you do get it!

VUK= vertical upright kicker

The " 's " is the obvious; there's more than one in the game.

Friend did buy it. I was just there to make sure everything was kosher. Nice shape for it's age I guess. I'm really only familiar with later clearcoated games, but from what I've seen the playfield was pretty decent. It still had the original mylar on it, and the cracking other places wasn't tragic or anything. Played it a couple times and everything was real crisp and strong.

Thanks for the help guys.
