    Evel Knievel Pinball Machine - $3800

    The sad reality of this hobby is asks like this are becoming normal. EMs commanding over $1k. System 7s pulling $2k. Nice ones more.

    Anymore I think you’d might as well “splurge” for a low end WPC game over the overpriced older stuff. Just my opinion...

    Agreed 100%. Suddenly those brand new pro models from stern at $5900 arent so expensive comparitively

    #6353 1 year ago

    It’s not the price that’s funny it’s the extra $50 he’s trying to get.

    Not sure if this is some sort of filter or if they are underwater or what.

    At 10m it may be safe to assume it's a type of smoke. Because to come up with that price, they had to be smoking something.

    Pretty sure this guy has never played pinball, nor a VW bus for that matter

    From what I read EVERYTHING is more expensive if you live down under. I have a guy there who wants to buy a computer from me, holy smokes on the taxes for just getting a package in the mail!

    I had a chuckle at this today. One original, one parody. Someone must have received a lowball offer.

    ONLY $2500! And check out that 'artwork' on the cab. That is in great condition!

    That's why I only have one game now as they're all priced out of my reach. It's probably cheaper to buy machines from America and have them shipped than to buy them here...so many greedy people in the game now.

    #6366 1 year ago

    It cost me $80 to send a 6 pack of RC cola and a box of Moonpies to NZ.... I suspect shipping a pin would be a bit more expensive.

    Did you lose a bet or something?

    #6368 1 year ago

    A client had a failed item (automotive related) and I had the my company ship him free replacement parts so he could be up and running. He send me several cans of L&P in return. So I sent him the RC and Moonpies. I also sent 1 can of Moxie soda because he knows a jerk who deserved it.

    $29,999 AUD = $21,000 USD, so actually quite a bargain!

    I did the math after the post. Dont forget 700 usd for shipping. Total $21700. So then 2 day air and set up in my basement

    Glad someone found this, another Ebay bargain. There is also the opposite on there now, a scam Fish Tales for $300.00.

    Bingo, the links die, plus, we dont want to be taken to those other sites. Post screenshots.

    #6391 1 year ago

    If it’s not a screen shot I just skip it. Links go dead or point to bad places, etc......

    #6392 1 year ago

    Do both! The link will last as long as it lasts, and it's nice to be able to visit CL and see the whole ad and all the pix. But yes, post a screenshot too!

    #6393 1 year ago

    I went to pick up a Stern Star Wars pro I bought from a guy on CL. It was a nice machine in great shape.

    When I got to his house he said "I was so happy that I could pull the ad off of CL. My phone has been buzzing all day, and it was mostly kooks wanting to trade for things, even though my ad specifically said NO TRADES. The best one was one guy wanted to trade me a string trimmer for the machine. A frickin string trimmer!"

    LOL. Don't know how he turned down that deal.

    I'd explain the problem with this but the 4 people under your post already have.
    Thanks for the downvote though.

    I love it. Battery is at four percent. You know the screen went dark already. Low battery warning keeps flashing. Maybe I should charge my phone, nope gotta check some pinball stuff first.

    Haha... I was jacked into a charger. Lightning bolt to the side of the battery indicator.

    Had to post that when I saw it. Couldn’t believe the price. That can’t be accurate right? I know the platinums are going for quite a bit, but $1 mill on Marco?
