    I’d hold out for a $10 coupon, myself.

    I'm really good with numbers, and I can tell you that coupon will definitely lower the price!

    If you can stack coupons, get 8,998 people to give you their codes and you can get it free.

    Now that's a good idea. I'm glad I hid the coupon number from my screenshot, I'm sure someone would have used it to achieve the same thing...

    This guy “Will Trade These 150+ things for 1 I phone & 1 Macbook”.

    losangeles.craigslist.org link

    Now you ask yourself, what does this have to do with pinball? Nothing of course except the following:

    “ I don't like video games, hd tv's, or tablets. I do like vintage, antique and classic things like silver and gold jewelry, vintage mens hats, pinball machines, land parcels, old classic cars/trucks/vans and art.”

    Standards are standards

    Quoted from bob_e:

    Bally Kiss $18,000

    $18k for a game where "everything on the machine works" and you can't bother to turn it on when you take pics?

    It was $22,000. That TBL is looking pretty good now

    betcha Frank Fritz wouldn't pay more than $1800

    Quoted from bob_e:

    Bally Kiss $18,000

    Who in their right mind would pay anything close to this price for that game? 17,000 produced. Who cares if it's number 22. Makes the seller looks like a fool. Im by far from the price police, but ad's like this just make me say "What an idiot"

    Send him a message telling him that the early production numbers were prone to failure. The modifications for reliability were typically completed around production number 200 and above. He's got a lemon!

    So which one of you guys is getting paid "hundreds of dollars an hour" to restore???

    I need to raise my rates!

    #6531 9 days ago

    I'm earning hundreds of hours per dollar, if I really want to be honest!

    #6532 9 days ago

    Lot of people taking a $6500-8500 hit since these retailed for 12-14k in 2003.

    Wow that's crazy. I was selling Simpsons PP for $4595 plus tax new. I thought I was high on price back then. The thought that some one would have paid 12k makes me think I was too cheap.
    For all you youngsters out there, tspp MSRP was about $3395.

    Thanks for the information. I will try to remember your values because I am interested in one some day. At least I have a starting point for reference now.

    Not my ad (obviously) but what is so shady about it? In fact, he has all of his punctuation, complete sentences, and correct spelling. I'd give this ad an A+.

    Here forgot to ask what time you are at work during the day and if your alarm system is monitored.

    Not so much laughing at the price, but this gem from the description: "Nice 1960 pinball machine by Williams 1960, works great WONDERFUL TAPPERS spun aluminum legs and trim " Wonderful tappers. Did those come on the LE model?
